Need tips on how to crack Pathophysiology

  1. Greetings, Everyone!

    Need advice on how to succeed at Patho. The test questions just seem to be taken from experience - nothing that you would read about.

    I really want to learn and do well. All inputs welcome.

    Thanks!

    heya Acey...i'm not sure how your classes are formatted questions and such but for me its really important to know whats going on with a normal person on like a cellular level....say the normal movement of glucose into a cell. ... has to be helped along by insulin...etc... then i make up little storiesa bout the wrong way things happen...for instance diabetes...the insulin doesnt help the glucose in...so the blood gets all full of glucose and the tissues are starving and so they get damaged...enter neuropathy and poor perfusion and foot problems etc... i think for patho to make sense you really have to have a firm handle on regular old physiology first. hope it helps!
