  • Features
    • Objectives: Objectives appear at the beginning of each chapter to provide a focus for your study.
    • Key Terms and Glossary: To enable you to better use and understand the vocabulary of your profession, throughout the text you will encounter key terms in bold purple.
    • “Key Points” Boxes: One of the ways to approach learning is to focus on the major ideas or concepts.  The “Key Points” boxes guide you in identifying the major ideas or concepts that form the foundation for truly understanding the major areas of content. When you understand the concepts in the “Key Points” boxes, you will have a framework for remembering and using the facts given in the text.
    • "Summary Concepts" Boxes: The "Summary Concepts" boxes at the end of each main section provide a review an a reinforcement of the important content that has been covered.  This feature breaks a process or phenomenon down into its component parts and presents it in a sequential manner, providing an insight into the many opportunities for disease processes to disrupt the sequence.
    • “Understanding” Boxes: “Understanding” boxes focus on the physiologic processes and phenomena that form the basis for understanding disorders presented in the text.
    • Tables and Charts: Tables and charts are designed to present complex information in a format that makes it more meaningful and facilitates recall of the information. Tables, which have two or more columns, are often used for the purpose of comparing or contrasting information. Charts, which have one column, are used to summarize information.
    • Illustrations and Photos: The detailed, full-color illustrations will help you to build your own mental image of the content that is being presented.  Some illustrations are used to help you picture the complex interactions of the multiple phenomena that are involved in the development of a particular disease; others can help you to visualize normal function or understand the mechanisms that enable the disease processes to exert their effects. In addition, photographs provide a realistic view of selected pathologic processes and lesions.  
    • Concept Mastery Alerts: Concept Mastery Alerts clarify fundamental nursing concepts to improve the reader’s understanding of potentially confusing topics, as identified by Misconception Alerts in Lippincott’s Adaptive Learning Powered by prepU.
    • Interactive Learning Resources: Interactive learning tools available online enrich learning and are identified with icons in the text.
      • Concepts in Action Animations bring physiologic and pathophysiologic concepts to life, explaining concepts that are difficult to understand.
      • Interactive Tutorials include graphics and animations and provide interactive review exercises.
    • Review Exercises: The Review Exercises at the end of each chapter are designed to help you integrate and synthesize material and to help you verify your understanding of the material presented. If you are unable to answer a question, reread the relevant section in the chapter. (Answers are available for instructors at http://thepoint.lww.com/ PorthEssentials5e.)
    • Appendix: The appendix “Lab Values” provides rapid access to normal values for many laboratory tests, as well as a description of the prefixes, symbols, and factors (e.g., micro, μ, 10−6) used for describing these values. Knowledge of normal values can help you to put abnormal values in context.
    • NOTE - PRACTICE AND LEARN INTERACTIVE CASE STUDIES EXCLUDED: The case studies from Porth Essentials 4e were deemed not to be relevant/appropriate for inclusion in Norris Essentials 5e due to the content revisions made by the author.
