Our lives are becoming more complex and more stressful. The demands of our external and internal environments are increasing. Human conditions have changed since the time that this book was first published. Thus, in this second edition, we, the authors, responded to the call of the times by coming up with new and relevant insights on human physiology. The medical curriculum has also undergone a transition from singular studies of parts of patient care to a holistic, problem-based, integrated organ-system approach. This book is a direct application of this holistic approach, as the topics herein are discussed in such a way as to emphasize multi-organ and multi-level interaction. The chosen topics are relevant to the common Filipino and yet are universal medical concerns that require discussions on various manifestations of organ or system interdependence. This book is the synergistic product of the minds of the faculty of the University of the Philippines College of Medicine''s Department of Physiology. This second edition of the book is more significant as it is being launched and offered on the centennial anniversary of the college. We are grateful for the inspiration and guidance that we derived from our students, fellow faculty, and families as we were working on this project. We thank Lauro Escobar, M.D., M.S., Vice President of the Physiology Society of the Philippines, who reviewed the book. We also acknowledge the work of our diligent staffers-Emma M. Legasto, Carolina R. Vytingco, Rainer R. Ramos, and Wilson D. De Leon; without them, this book would not have been produced. We welcome your feedback as well as your encouragement as we acknowledge that we are on a constant journey of change, improvement, and empowerment
