This book is divided into eleven sections and it is provided with updated tables, flow charts, and self-explanatory diagrams for better understanding of the users. General physiology is the first section of this book and it describes cell, cell junctions, transport through cell membrane, homeostasis and acid-base balance. The subsequent sections give a detailed account on blood and body fluids, muscle physiology, digestive system, renal physiology and skin, endocrinology, reproductive system, cardiovascular system and respiratory system.
