Textbook of Anatomy and Physiology for Nurses

by PR Ashalatha

Learning Anatomy has always been a Himalayan task for the medical and paramedical students. This is partly due to the lack of a simple and complete book on the subject. The need of a simple and “easy to learn” book in the field of Anatomy and Physiology. Rapid advances in scientific and technological fields have led to much more being expected from a modern nurse or a paramedic. This necessitates a rigorous and advanced training and understanding of modern scientific equipment and the theories behind it, demanding thorough knowledge, and expertise, which is in no way inferior to that of a doctor. This requires a sound understanding of the basic concepts in Anatomy and Physiology. A humble attempt is being made to fulfil the long-felt need of a complete textbook in the field of Anatomy and Physiology, mainly for nursing and paramedical students and as a foundation for the medical undergraduates too. Details are included in an organised, methodical way, in a simple and easily understandable style keeping in mind the needs of the Asian students. All the relevant aspects of a topic like gross anatomy, histology and applied anatomy are given systematically, so that the students need not have to hunt for material in different books. There are nearly 450 simple diagrams, which will help in memorising the subject with ease and reproduce it in the examinations. This book can be used as a reference for the paramedical students and nurses as it contains in places more details than may be needed for the purpose of passing the examination. A few model question papers are also included. I hope the students will enjoy reading this book and not only benefit in mastering the subject but also achieve success in their academic goal.
