The human body is made up of systems of organs, which, when working properly, allow people to go through their daily tasks without a second thought. When the system, or one of its organs, malfunctions, doctors must work with patients to determine optimal treatments to restore organ function and health. Researchers are developing new and improved treatments all the time. This ten-volume set looks at each of the human body's systems in detail. At the beginning of each volume, the author introduces the system and its component parts, explaining how each works and its importance to health. Common malfunctions and diseases of the system are also presented, along with typical tests and treatments. Next, a history of the study of this system traces important discoveries about this body system, and identifies the doctors, scientists, and researchers who made these discoveries. Finally, each volume ends with a discussion about the future of the body system-what researchers are still trying to learn about how the system works, and potential new therapies to solve as-yet-untreatable diseases and injuries. Fascinating facts about each body system, and a list of resources for further information, will help both students and patients locate all they need to know about the body system they are researching.

Volumes, by professionals in the field, are structured and written for ready understanding by general readers....[I]deal for public libraries, secondary schools, and undergraduates. Recommended. General readers; undergraduates.?-Choice
