about

Quantitative Human Physiology: An Introduction, winner of a 2018 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty), is the first text to meet the needs of the undergraduate bioengineering student who is being exposed to physiology for the first time, but requires a more analytical/quantitative approach. This book explores how component behavior produces system behavior in physiological systems. Through text explanation, figures, and equations, it provides the engineering student with a basic understanding of physiological principles with an emphasis on quantitative aspects.

  • Winner of a 2018 Textbook Excellence Award (College) (Texty) from the Textbook and Academic Authors Association
  • Features a quantitative approach that includes physical and chemical principles
  • Provides a more integrated approach from first principles, integrating anatomy, molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology
  • Includes clinical applications relevant to the biomedical engineering student (TENS, cochlear implants, blood substitutes, etc.)
  • Integrates labs and problem sets to provide opportunities for practice and assessment throughout the course

NEW FOR THE SECOND EDITION

  • Expansion of many sections to include relevant information
  • Addition of many new figures and re-drawing of other figures to update our understanding and clarify difficult areas
