Guyton and Hall's 13th edition of Medical Physiology's Textbook continues the long legacy of this bestselling series as the world's leading textbook on medical physiology. This straightforward and detailed guide, unlike other textbooks on this topic, has a concise, single-author voice and focuses on the material that is most applicable to clinical and pre-clinical students. The detailed but lucid text is complemented by didactic illustrations, which summarize key physiological and pathophysiological concepts.

Larger font size emphasizes key details about how the body has to preserve homeostasis to remain stable while supporting information and illustrations are outlined in smaller fonts and illustrated in pale blue.

Summary figures and tables help convey key processes covered by the text quickly.
Bold sketches and graphs full color.
Quick paragraphs, simple to read, masterfully edited and user friendly full color interface.
Brand-new quick-reference map on the inside back cover with standard laboratory values.
Increased number of statistics, empirical associations, and essential pathways for clinical practice, both cellular and molecular.
Student Consult received eBook edition with order. This improved eBook interface contains the full text, interactive statistics, guides, plus 50 questions about self-assessment and more than a dozen animations.

Book Reviews:

One needs to have a deep knowledge of human physiology to be a great physicist / scientist. This great classic medical physiology textbook is a must-have for every practicing physicist and passionate scientist whichever area of medicine or research one is interested in.

This classic textbook was first published by late Professor Arthur Guyton in 1956, and regularly updated with the field 's progress.

Professor John Hall contributed to this textbook's ninth and tenth editions, and after Dr. Guyton's unexpected death in 2003, Dr. Hall took on the task of following the same pattern and upgrading this wonderful book from 2006 on.

This new edition is divided into 15 units and each unit has its own chapters which are divided into 85 chapters. Unit I is an introduction to 3 chapters in biology: cell biology and general physiology. Unit II, consisting of 5 books, covers membrane biology, nerve, and muscle. Unit VIII has 2 chapters concerned with the physiology of aviation, water, and deep sea diving. This has a hyperbaric oxygen therapy feature on it. Units IX, X, and XI refer to nervous system biology consisting of 17 chapters that elegantly examine different facets of the human nervous system.

All the subjects discussed are important to the physician / scientist who works everyday. One explanation is the essential role of thyroid hormone in the brain's growth and development during prenatal, neonatal, and infantile cycles, which needs to be stressed and understood because of its extreme cretinism-related effects.

Unfortunately, in many medical schools the present curriculum in medical education does not stress the importance in understanding of human biology and anatomy, which are the basis of medical education in educating the next generation of physicists / scientists.

With the advancement of science, there is no question that other disciplines such as genetics , molecular biology, nanotechnology, and gene therapy should be integrated into the medical education curriculum, but the medical field's structure should not be overlooked and stressed.

I hope doctors / scientists excited about improving their education and communicating with the new literature would find this excellent textbook as a point of reference for their bookshelf.
