In the present book an attempt has been made to apply physiology to medicine in the same way as anatomy has long been applied to surgery. It is not intended to be a substitute for physiological textbooks, but merely a companion to them.

Anatomy and physiology are closely integrated both theoretically and practically. Anatomical information provides clues about probable functions and physiological mechanisms can be explained only in terms of the underlying anatomy.

This primary textbook of applied physiology follows a natural order of treatment. In each subject elementary anatomical facts are presented in a manner which impresses function rather than form, and from the form described derives the function.
