Ghai’s Textbook of Practical Physiology

by VP Varshney, Mona Bedi

Ghai’s textbook of practical physiology, 9th edition, has been prepared for the benefit of the medical students based on our long teaching experience in physiology. This book is divided into 7 sections that focus on hematology, human experiments, clinical examination, experimental physiology, charts and important questions, calculations, and sample problem solving. In this book, Author has attempted to familiarize the students with the clinical and experimental approach to human physiology. Care has been taken to modify the practicals according to the Medical Council of India (MCI) guidelines. Well-labeled diagrams and flowcharts have been incorporated to improve understanding. A basic format has been adhered to in each practical. Each experiment starts with “student objectives”, which are basically learning objectives for the students. This is followed by a brief “introduction” of the practical. After explaining the “principle”, the “apparatus” required for the experiment is described. A detailed step by step “procedure” is then elaborated. The working instructions are simple so the average student can easily follow them. Next come the “observations” and “results”. The “precautions”, which helps to minimize the error in the practical are listed after the “results”. As all experiments have a physiological and clinical importance, a separate heading has been ascribed for “physioclinical significance” in each experiment. Each chapter ends with “questions” along with their answers to help the student to prepare for their examination viva.
