Elaine Marieb's clearly written and comprehensive lab manuals guide students through well-planned lab activities and feature illustrations and full-color photographs that help students to better understand the material. Designed to stand alone or for use with other materials, each manual offers hands-on experience with anatomical structures and physiological concepts to aid in mastery of the subject. The cat and fetal pig lab manual versions also include detailed dissection exercises that clearly lead students step by step through the dissection process. Packaged with the text, the new PhysioEx® Version 6.0 includes new Serological Testing laboratory simulations, a revised and redesigned Histology Tutorial, and online worksheets with multiple-choice answers that can be instantly scored and reported to instructors. PhysioEx® Version 6.0 is available in CD-ROM format and on the Web at www.physioex.com.Numerous laboratory exercises in a variety of formats make these lab manuals flexible enough to meet the needs of virtually every anatomy and physiology laboratory course. Beautiful, full-color art and photos help students visualize anatomical structures and physiological concepts for laboratory practice. Thorough and clearly written exercises assist students in comprehending and retaining the material with pre-lab background information, step-by-step instructions, and tear-out review sheets. Dissection icons clearly indicate dissection activities. Homeostasis icons highlight clinical materials that reinforce the concept of disease as loss of homeostatic balance. Safety guidelines printed on the inside front cover and safety icons throughout the text alert students to the need for protective precautions. Centers for Disease Control guidelines are included for exercises involving body fluids. Media references throughout the labs make it easy for both instructors and students to effectively use all available technology, including PhysioEx® 6.0, A.D.A.M.® Interactive Anatomy, and BIOPAC®. Eight new BIOPAC exercises have been added to appropriate exercises, including activities on EMG, EEG, ECG, Galvanic Skin Response, Measuring Reaction Time, Measuring Pulse, Measuring Respiratory Volumes, and Recovering Frog Heart Activity. A.D.A.M.® Interactive Anatomy (AIA) references, clearly called out with AIA icons, correlate selected anatomical lab activities with corresponding sections in AIA. A correlation guide is included in Appendix B of the lab manual.
