This guide covers anatomy and physiology, the functions of the organs and systems, and disease and treatment. The first part of the book forms an illustrated handbook to the anatomy and physiology of the human body. The anatomical drawings show everything from the bones and muscles to the structure of the important organs, such as the liver, with text explaining the functioning of the various organs and systems. It also points to the diseases that may affect these organs. The second part provides alphabetically-arranged articles, covering diseases, treatments, and a wide range of medical terms to form a concise medical enyclopedia for both instant reference and for study.
