The Concise Human Body Book An illustrated guide to its structure function and disorders 1st ed – New Medical Book

Description

To understand the inner structure and workings of the human body, this book takes the “living machine” approach, borrowed from sciences such as engineering. This views the body as a series of integrated systems. Each system carries out one major task. In the cardiovascular system, for example, the heart pumps blood through vessels, to supply every body part with essential oxygen and nutrients.
