With Saladin, students make connections through learning outcomes and assessments, integrated media, and a writing style that clearly depicts anatomy and physiology processes. A consistent set of chapter learning tools helps students identify and retain key concepts while the stunning visual program provides a realistic view of body structures and processes.
Saladin's text requires no prior knowledge of college chemistry or cell biology, and is designed for a two-semester A&P course.
Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to the full online ebook version of the textbook, as well full access to LearnSmart, SmartBook, and Anatomy & Physiology Revealed.
The seventh edition's changes focus primarily on new science (30+ updates based on advances in science), new writing (30+ new sections of text to improve discussion, update terminology, and include new Deeper Insight examples), and 40+ new and revised photos and illustrations. Also, a new appendix has been added to the 7th edition to include the complete genetic code. Significant improvements have also been made to the Connect question banks.
Beginning of chapter “Brushing Up” makes it clear why a student must know earlier concepts in order to understand a new chapter.

End of chapter Study Guide offers several methods for student assessment:
“Assess Your Learning Outcomes” is written in an “indicative format” that doesn't paraphrase the chapter's main points but indicates what key points the student should get out of the chapter.
Feature: “Testing Your Recall”, “True or False”, and “Testing Your Comprehension” all build on Bloom's Taxonomy to assess learning outcomes, test simple recall and analytical thought, and apply basic knowledge to new clinical problems and other situations.
Feature: “Building Your Medical Vocabulary” tests the student's knowledge of medical word roots and affixes. This feature includes 300 of the most commonly used word elements in medical terminology.
Exceptional writing. Saladin offers the reader accurate content that is presented at an appropriate level of detail for the beginning A&P student. The author incorporates clinical examples, real-life applications, and “try this yourself” activities to make the content interesting to the student, but does so in moderation to keep the discussion focused on the main ideas. Students are better able to understand the difficult information provided without being overloaded with extraneous details.
Superior art program. Saladin raised the bar on art programs in A&P! Saladin's art program features the highest quality of realism, 3D appeal, accuracy, and clarity. Digital files of the entire art program are also available for use by instructors to allow complete flexibility for lecture presentations and assessment.
Effective clinical coverage. Saladin uses clinical examples and essays to show students the relevance of the concepts they are learning to their future career. Some topics Saladin addresses include: medical imaging techniques, gene therapy, carpal tunnel syndrome, Alzheimer disease, AIDS, Viagra, and hypertension.

Each chapter has been thoroughly updated to stay abreast of the latest developments in science. Significant new science includes:
The high frequency of everyday DNA damage (chapter 4)
Updates in muscle physiology on the length-tension relationship, the size principle in recruitment, tetanus, fatigue, muscle fiber types, and smooth muscle caveolae (chapter 11)
New insights on functions of the spleen (chapter 21)
New interpretation of reproductive effects of the environmental endocrine disruptors (chapter 27)
11 new photographs, including: intestinal mesentery (A.8), histology of the adrenal cortex (17.11), macrophages attacking bacteria (21.7), T cells attacking cancer cell (21.24), SEM of acini and myophithelial cells of the mammary gland
10 new pieces of new art including a full-page summary flowchart of cranial nerve pathways (14.39) and a full-page summary figure of macronutrient digestion and absorption (25.31)
A new table of the complete genetic code has been added as an appendix.
