Clinical role of pharmacists have been identified during last 9 years after establishment of regulations for Pharm. D in 2008 followed by establishment of Pharmacy practice regulations in 2015 by Pharmacy Council of India. The practice of Pharmacy needs some time to get strong footing in our country. During such time, subject like Pathophysiology need strong base by budding pharmacists.
Strong background of physiology is needed for understanding of Pathophysiology. Since a separate subject of Anatomy and Physiology is devoted in the degree curriculum, suggested by Pharmacy Council of India (PCI), the present book does not provide physiological background for the disease. Diseases as mentioned in the curriculum have been covered under the headings of etiology, signs and symptoms and complications. Since names of many diseases are new to the students of health profession/pharmacy, a separate section of appendix on definitions/diseases and syndromes/other related clinical terms are included in the book. Clinical details of the diseases which are relevant to health professionals/pharmacists are included only to the optimal extent. Many common abbreviations along with their full forms have been included as a section of appendix.
