Infection Control & Emerging
Infectious Diseases
Pathophysiology: A Plain
English Approach
By William Barry Inman,
BA-BS, CIC - seminar presenter
By Mikel Rothenberg, MD
To appreciate the mechanisms of disease,
it’s essential to understand how things work normally.
It then becomes straightforward to appreciate how
normal structure and function are altered, resulting
in illness. Laboratory medicine, biochemistry,
pharmacology and pathophysiology are integrally
related to each other. This book will provide a “onestop shopping experience” for the information you
really need to know about the selected topics.
