Anatomy and body structure is a dynamic textbook for the yearlong Human Anatomy and body structure path taught at such a lot - and four-year faculties and universities to scholars majoring in nursing and allied health and wellbeing. A&P is 29 chapters of pedagogically potent studying content material, equipped via physique approach, and written at an audience-appropriate point. The lucid textual content, strategically built paintings, inspiring occupation beneficial properties, and hyperlinks to exterior studying instruments tackle the severe instructing and studying demanding situations within the path. colour is used for pedagogical impact in A&P. so much artwork will encompass based black line, with the most powerful line illustrating an important structure(s) and shading used to teach size and form. colour (used purely while wanted) highlights and clarifies the first anatomical or useful element of the representation. pupil concentration is interested in an important studying element in each one representation, with no distraction from over the top gradients, shadows, and loud highlights. the web publication offers scholars with hyperlinks to surgical movies, histology, interactive diagrams, and cadaver imagery at severe junctures. This ebook is offered on-line at no cost at openstaxcollege dot org

Coupled Bioluminescent Assays: Methods, Evaluations, and Applications

This publication highlights the purposes of coupled bioluminescence assay innovations to real-world difficulties in drug discovery, environmental and chemical research, and biodefense. It separates theoretical facets from the utilized sections in a transparent and readable approach. Coupled Bioluminescent Assays, explains the makes use of of CB applied sciences throughout drug discovery to investigate toxicity, drug receptors, and enzymes.

Physiological pharmaceutics: barriers to drug absorption

In recent times, the emphasis in drug improvement has been the layout of recent supply structures instead of new medicinal drugs. it's the objective of leading edge pharmaceutical scientists to layout the hot dosage varieties to beat the body's barrier mechanisms that have in particular developed to exclude international fabric.

Example text

A hyperbaric chamber is a reinforced, closed chamber that is pressurized to greater than atmospheric pressure. It treats DCS by repressurizing the body so that pressure can then be removed much more gradually. Because the hyperbaric chamber introduces oxygen to the body at high pressure, it increases the concentration of oxygen in the blood. This has the effect of replacing some of the nitrogen in the blood with oxygen, which is easier to tolerate out of solution. The dynamic pressure of body fluids is also important to human survival.
