Which Pathophysioloy book would you want

If you were stranded on an Island, what is the one pathophysiology book would you like to be stranded with??? Any ideas. I'm looking.

Thank you for any input.

Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults And Children Fifth Edition Good stuff

That's the one I was going to suggest but I took Pathophysiology from the authors so I wasn't sure how biased my opinion was!


Specializes in Gerontology, nursing education.

That's by McCance and Huether, right?

That would be my choice, too.

MagsMom, what an awesome opportunity! Wow!

I would want a computer with a satellite-internet connection.

Wait... is that against the rules?

Just finishing up patho - never even cracked my book.

Idk. I've only read one. In fact, it's the second textbook I've ever read actively. I took A&P after I'd gotten my first degree. Took that out of interest. Was totally my thing. Loved it. Read it all. Still working on patho now that I'm back in school years after that for the old RN/BSN bag. I want a detailed version. This one, Pathophysiology for Health Professions, is too surface skimming. I'm much more into the biology aspects than the nursing, interventional elements. In fact, I'm finding I'd rather know than do.

Graduate or undergraduate?

For NP or other MSN students, I absolutely believe the best is Pathophysiology-Biological and Behavioral Perspectives by Copstead and Banasik.

Robbins' Pathology is the definitive source, and you could also use it as a chair.

Jenn wouldn't that be fun to run away?? LOL...

Thanx everyone for your input. I found a 5th ED. on amazon.com for $11.00

JMQ...neither, just wanted a good general purpose path. book. Thanx.
