Number of pages: 970
Pain is universal, and is present in practically every disease, and in most diseases it is the one symptom which first attracts the patient's attention and causes him to become aware of some change in his physical well-being. The physician needs to know not only the various factors to which a certain pain may be due, but also the reasons why it should be produced and the different diseases giving rise to pain of similar character and location.

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.
by M. Osterweis, A. Kleinman, D. Mechanic - National Academies Press
This volume covers the epidemiology and physiology of pain; psychosocial contributions to pain and illness behavior; promising ways of assessing and measuring chronic pain; clinical aspects of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.
Human Physiology explains the workings of your body, it is intended as an undergraduate-level guide to the functios of the body systems at a cellular level, and explains how they work together to maintain a favorable environment for your cells.
by Frank Overton - American Book Company
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.
