As far as text books go, it has a lot of information. I do have a question about one thing in particular.

On page 282, under Red Cell Life Span and Destruction, towards the end of the first paragraph where reference is made to the size of red cells. I think there is a typo in the units. Should it not be micrometers (Greek letter mu) instead of millimeters (mm)?

It was a bit dense in places, but appreciated the review from chapter to chapter as well as references back to previously covered material when appropriate.
Nursing implications were implied rather than stated outright in most places.
Excellent use of graphics and photos to illustrate concepts.

"Porth" is one of the mainstays of my medical education. It's a step or two above the typical college A&P text, but surprisingly well-done. The concepts are sometimes difficult, but the language is clear.

This is my favorite Pathophysiology textbook. I learned so much with regard to alterations of human pathology and the subsequent manifestations pertaining thereto.

A text book about disease in the body.
