The 13th edition of Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology continues this bestselling title's longtradition as the worlds foremostmedical physiology textbook. Unlike other textbooks on this topic, thisclear and comprehensiveguide has a consistent, single-author voice and focuses on the content most relevant to clinical and pre-clinical students.The detailed but lucid text is complemented by didactic illustrations thatsummarize key concepts in physiology and pathophysiology.

Newto this Edition

  • Brand-new quick-reference chart of normal lab values on the inside back cover.

  • Increased number of figures, clinical correlations, and cellular and molecular mechanisms important for clinical medicine.

  • Student Consult eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience includes the complete text, interactive figures, references, plus 50 self-assessment questions and more than a dozen animations.


  • Larger font size emphasizes core information around how the body must maintain homeostasis in order to remain healthy, while supporting information and examples are detailed in smaller font and highlighted in pale blue.

  • Summary figures and tables help quickly convey key processes covered in the text.

  • Bold full-color drawings and diagrams.

  • Short, easy-to-read, maste
