Kaplan Medical USMLE Step 1 Lecture Notes: Physiology (2013)

Those are Adobe Clearscan PDF records generated from six hundred dpi scans of the Kaplan USMLE Step 1 Lecture Notes which were disbursed to scholars in Kaplan scientific prep classes in 2014.

The following preface references 7 volumes. This includes in simple terms the body structure volume.

These 7 volumes of Lecture Notes characterize the most-likely-to-be-tested fabric at the present USMLE Step 1 examination. Please be aware that those are Lecture Notes, no longer assessment books. The Notes have been designed to be observed via school lectures­ dwell, on video, or on the net. analyzing them with no getting access to the accompanying lectures isn't really a good way to check for the USMLE.

To maximize the effectiveness of those Notes, annotate them as you hearken to lec­tures. To facilitate this procedure, we've created broad, clean margins. whereas those margins are sometimes punctuated via school high-yield "margin notes:' they're, for the main half, left clean in your notations.

Many scholars locate that previewing the Notes ahead of the lecture is a really effec­tive option to organize for sophistication. this permits you to count on the components the place you'll have to pay specific cognizance. It additionally gives you the chance to map out how the data goes to be provided and what kind of examine aids (charts, diagrams, and so forth. ) you should upload. This approach works whether you're attending a reside lecture or staring at one on video or the web.

Finally, we wish to pay attention what you're thinking that. What do you're keen on in regards to the Notes? What may be superior? Please percentage your suggestions by means of e-mailing us at med. suggestions@ kaplan. com.

Thank you for becoming a member of Kaplan clinical, and better of good fortune in your Step 1 exam!

Physiology Third Edition With Access

That includes a spotlight on mechanisms, this renowned reference comprehensively covers vital innovations in body structure, either on the organ approach and mobile degrees. effortless to learn and straightforward, the revised 3rd version stresses crucial and suitable content material with absolute readability and contains concise step by step motives complemented through quite a few tables and considerable illustrations.

The Influence of Ocular Light Perception on Metabolism in Man and in Animal, 1st Edition

This publication was once written to teach that gentle is a primal section of lifestyles. All existence originates and develops below the impression of the sunshine of the solar, that "super­ terrestrial traditional strength" (Goethe). sun affects the important strategies now not onlyofthe plant (e. g. , heliotropism, photosynthesis) and the animal (e.

Human Physiology, Biochemistry and Basic Medicine

Human body structure, Biochemistry and uncomplicated drugs is a special viewpoint that attracts jointly human biology, body structure, biochemistry, meals, and cellphone biology in a single complete quantity. during this approach, it truly is uniquely certified to deal with the wishes of the rising box of humanology, a holistic method of realizing the biology of people and the way they're individual from different animals.

Sample text

Binding of ACh to nicotinic ACh receptors on the junctional folds causes the ligand-gated channels to open in an all-or-none fashion. The channels are equally permeable to Na+, which flows into the cell, and to K+, which flows out of the cell. The combined Na+ and K+ current depolarizes the muscle cell from its resting potential (∼ −80 mV) to the threshold for the action potential (∼ −50 mV), with the resulting action potential propagating across the entire muscle cell. Because both Na+ (which has a very positive equilibrium potential, ENa) and K+ (which has a very negative equilibrium potential, EK) flow through the ACh-gated channels at the endplate, the reversal potential (defined as the potential where the sum of the inward Na+ and outward K+ current through the open channels is 0) is close to 0 mV, which is approximately halfway between ENa and EK.

For small chemical molecules, most are not stored but are produced as needed, as has been observed for nitric oxide. For a molecule to act as a signal, it first must bind to a cellular receptor. Cellular receptors are specialized molecules or a complex of molecules (proteins or glycoproteins) on the cell surface or within the cell that specifically bind a signaling molecule or ligand. Typically, the receptor, when activated (when it binds a ligand), initiates an intracellular cascade of biochemical events that act as a transducer (signal transduction pathway) that ultimately impinges on an effector molecule, such as an enzyme, ion channel, or transcription factor, that initiates a cellular response (eg, cell division, gene expression, contraction, secretion).

D. The NaCl and glucose solution empties from the stomach at a faster rate than does a solution containing NaCl alone. 2] The rate of absorption of a drug taken orally is found to increase as the dose ingested is increased up to a point where further increases in dose result in no further increases in the rate of absorption. Absorption does not appear to result in the splitting of ATP. Which of the following processes best describes the drug absorption? A. B. C. D. E. 3] Facilitated diffusion Primary active transport Restricted diffusion Secondary active transport Simple diffusion A drug is noted to cause only a change in the resting membrane potential of intestinal epithelial cells from −60 mV to −50 mV.
