about

This original six chapter book will briefly review and integrate the basic concepts behind water distribution and movement in the body. This fills a knowledge gap that most medical and undergraduate physiology students acquire when these topics are studied separately. As of now, there is no textbook that fully integrates renal, cardiovascular and water physiology in a clear understandable manner. The book is intended primarily for medical students and undergraduate physiology students. Chapters include: 1) Water and its Distribution; 2) Water Dynamics; 3) Fluid Handling by the Heart and Blood Vessels; 4) Fluid Handling by the Kidneys; 5) Water and Oxygen Delivery; 6) Integration in the Response to Hemorrhage, Volume Depletion, and Water Redistribution.



  • An easy-to-read, step by step explanation of how water is distributed, how it moves, how this aides in oxygen delivery and how this is regulated in the human body.
  • Presents a complex and detailed topic in an original way that will allow students to understand more complex textbooks and explanations

About The Author

After receiving his medical degree with honors from the University of La Salle in Mexico City, Dr. Arroyo pursued a PhD in Biomedical Science at the National Autonomous University in Mexico City (UNAM), focusing on renal ion transport physiology. During this time he was appointed Adjunct Professor of Physiology at the University of La ...
