McKinley/O'Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach, 2e brings multiple elements of the study of A&P together in ways that maximize understanding. Text discussions provide structural details in the context of their functional significance to integrate coverage of anatomy and physiology in each chapter. Chapters emphasize the interdependence of body systems by weaving prior coverage of one system into textual explanations of how other systems work. These system relationships are also covered in âIntegrate: Concept Connectionâ boxes. All figures are carefully designed to support the text narrative, and carry brief textual explanations to make figures self-contained study tools. Special âConcept Overviewâ figures in each chapter tie together multi-faceted concepts in 1- or 2-page visual summaries. Applications are presented in âIntegrate: Clinical Viewâ boxes to apply chapter content using clinical examples that show students what can go wrong in the body, to help crystallize understanding of the ânorm.â Critical Thinking questions in âWhat Do You Think?â engage students in application or analysis to encourage students to think more globally about the content; âWhat Did You Learnâ are mini self-tests at the end of each section that assess whether students have a sufficient grasp of the content before moving on. End-of-chapter âChallenge Yourselfâ assessments include âDo You Know the Basicsâ, âCan You Apply What You've Learned?â, and âCan You Synthesize What You've Learned?â question sets. Career opportunities pursued by students studying A&P are highlighted at the beginning of each chapter. Everyday analogies and practical advice for remembering material are presented in âIntegrate: Learning Strategyâ boxes.
