Back to Basics in Physiology: Electrolytes and Non-electrolyte Solutes in the Body exploits the gap that exists in current physiology books. Instead of tackling one particular organ system at a time, the authors tackle specific problems, also evaluating their repercussions on systemic physiology. This original, six chapter book briefly reviews and integrates the basic concepts behind the function of electrolytes in the body, providing a bridge that allows students to understand basic science and its direct translation to the clinical setting, with a final aim of comprehending the basic science behind clinical observations. With the exploding amount of basic science information that is available today to physiology students (undergraduate, nursing, physician associate or medical), there is more and more of a disconnect between the basic and clinical sciences. The book allows students to gain sufficient background knowledge of physiology and its direct application to clinical skills as it is written as lectures in day-to-day language that is easy to comprehend.
