The McKinley/O&#39Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach text brings multiple elements of the study of A&P together in ways that maximise understanding. Text discussions provide structural details in the context of their functional significance to integrate coverage of anatomy and physiology in each chapter. Chapters emphasise 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 &#8220Integrate: Concept Connection&#8221 boxes. All figures are carefully designed to support the text narrative, and carry brief textual explanations to make figures self-contained study tools.

Special &#8220Concept Overview&#8221 figures in each chapter tie together multi-faceted concepts in 1- or 2-page visual summaries. Applications are presented in &#8220Integrate: Clinical View&#8221 boxes to apply chapter content using clinical examples that show students what can go wrong in the body, to help crystallise understanding of the &##8220norm;&#8221 clinical scenarios are also used in &#8220What Do You Think?&#8221, &#8220Can You Apply What You&#39ve Learned?&#8221, and &#8220Can You Synthesise What You&#39ve Learned?&#8221 question sets; and 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 &#8220Integrate: Learning Strategy&#8221 boxes. Chapters end with a summary of media tools available to help learn each chapter&#39s content.
