This core textbook helps medical students bridge the gap between biochemistry, physiology, and clinical care. The strength of Mark's Basic Medical Biochemistry is that it starts with the patient—the metabolic and nutritional needs of the human body (easy for students to understand)—as opposed to explanations of complex chemical theory. Mark's Basic empahsizes clinical correlations throughout the text and links biochemical concepts to physiology and pathophysiology, using patient vignettes as the context. These specific and memorable mock patient cases are followed throughout the chapter to pose questions, illustrate core concepts, and help students remember and apply biochemical priniciples within the context of clinical practice.

Connect biochemistry to clinical practice! Marks' Basic Medical Biochemistry links biochemistry to physiology and pathophysiology, allowing students to apply fundamental concepts to the practice of medicine - from diagnosing patients to recommending effective treatments. Intuitively organized chapters center on hypothetical patient vignettes, highlighting the material's clinical applications; helpful icons allow for smooth navigation, making complex concepts easier to grasp. Full-color illustrations make chemical structures and biochemical pathways easy to visualize. Patient vignettes connect biochemistry to human health and disease. Clinical Notes explain patient signs or symptoms, and Method Notes relate biochemistry to the laboratory tests ordered during diagnosis. Clinical Comments link biochemical dynamics to treatment options and patient outcomes. Biochemical Comments explore directions for new research. Key Concepts and Summary Disease tables highlight the take-home messages in each chapter. Questions and answers at the end of each chapter - 470 total inside the book, with 560 more online - probe students' mastery of key concepts. Additional handy resources available online make it easy to review all diseases and all methods covered throughout the book and to find references for further information and study

Excerpt from The Measurement of Adult Intelligence The author also desires to record his obligation to various members of the psychological staff of Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital, who tried out the tests in their incipient stages and by constructive criticism helped in their ultimate appraisal. He feels particularly indebted to Professor F. L. Wells of Harvard University whose continued interest in the Scales and helpful suggestions were a source of both inspiration and encouragement.

This collection of true narratives reflects the dynamism and diversity of nurses, who provide the first vital line of patient care. Here, nurses remember their first “sticks,” first births, and first deaths, and reflect on what gets them though long, demanding shifts, and keeps them in the profession. The stories reveal many voices from nurses at different stages of their careers: One nurse-in-training longs to be trusted with more “important” procedures, while another questions her ability to care for nursing home residents. An efficient young emergency room nurse finds his life and career irrevocably changed by a car accident. A nurse practitioner wonders whether she has violated professional boundaries in her care for a homeless man with AIDS, and a home care case manager is the sole attendee at a funeral for one of her patients. What connects these stories is the passion and strength of the writers, who struggle against burnout and bureaucracy to serve their patients with skill, empathy, and strength.
