Prepare your students for success in their allied health careers with Memmler’s The Human Body in Health and Disease, 13e. Acclaimed for its innovations in pedagogy and approach, the book has already helped hundreds of thousands of allied health students (including those with little or no background in science and/or weak language skills) to master the content of the course. From its pioneering use of phonetic pronunciations to its pedagogically effective skin-to-bone transparencies of the human body, to this edition’s new personalized chapter-by-chapter quizzes powered by prepU; this book continues to set the standard for the one-semester course.
Continuing the tradition of excellence that has made the book a classic, this edition prepares students for success in their healthcare careers through easy-to-understand, beautifully illustrated coverage of the essentials of human anatomy, physiology, and the effects of disease. Throughout the book, anatomical art illustrates concepts with accuracy, simplicity, and elegance; medical case studies enhanced with additional clinical content demonstrate the relevance of the content to a career in the health professions; and unique pedagogy helps students master the anatomic and medical terminology they will encounter in healthcare settings.
Now more engaging, easier to learn from, and easier to remember than ever before, the Thirteenth Edition features a clear, friendly writing style; a dramatically enhanced design, photo, and art program; a wide array of in-text and online learning tools tailored to the needs of allied health students; and an unparalleled suite of instructor and student resources designed to save you time and help your students succeed.

between atoms. The number of bonds an atom needs to form in order to stabilize its outermost energy level is called its valence (from a Latin word that means “strength”). An atom needs to form one bond for every electron it donates, accepts, or shares, so valence can also be defined as the number of electrons lost, gained, or shared by atoms of an element in chemical reactions. Referring back to our examples in the previous section, oxygen has six electrons in the outer energy level and must form
glands and the diseases caused by hormonal excess or deficiency, such as diabetes mellitus, are the subject of Chapter 12. Hereditary errors of metabolism result from genetic changes that affect enzymes. The basics of heredity are described in Chapter 25. Immune disorders. These relate to the system that protects us against infectious diseases (see Chapter 17). Some deficiencies in the immune system are inherited; some, such as AIDS, are the result of infection. This category also includes

Both the formation and resorption of bone tissue are regulated by hormones. Vitamin D, consumed in the diet and produced by the skin, promotes calcium absorption from the intestine. Parathyroid hormone is produced by the parathyroid glands in the neck (posterior to the thyroid gland). Parathyroid hormone stimulates osteoclast activity, resulting in bone resorption and release of calcium into the blood. The sex hormones, estrogen and testosterone, also contribute to bone growth and maintenance.
