• Clear explanations of physiological, pathological and physical principles without an assumption of specialist knowledge • Liberal use of full colour annotated diagrams and figures to assist in the understanding of more complex material • Extensive glossary explains complex terms and allows the cross-referencing of multiple terms, which are a common source of confusionContents
