PhysioEx(TM) 9.0: Laboratory Simulations in Physiology, 1/e

PhysioEx™ 9.0: Laboratory Simulations in Physiology is an easy-to-use laboratory simulation software and lab manual that consists of 12 exercises containing 66 physiology lab activities that can be used to supplement or substitute wet labs. PhysioEx allows students to repeat labs as often as they like, perform experiments without harming live animals, and conduct experiments that are difficult to perform in a wet lab environment because of time, cost, or safety concerns.

The PhysioEx 9.0 software features a brand new online format with step-by-step instructions and assessment so that everything students need to do and complete their lab is located in one convenient place. New Pre-lab and Post-lab Quizzes for each activity and Stop & Think and Predict Questions within the steps of each experiment help students make the connection between the activities and the physiological concepts they demonstrate. Student answers to all of these questions and the results from the experiments can be saved in a PDF Lab Report. The PhysioEx 9.0 CD-ROM comes packaged with every new copy of the PhysioEx 9.0 lab manual. Each new copy of the PhysioEx 9.0 lab manual also includes access to the online version of PhysioEx 9.0. KEY TOPICS: Cell Transport Mechanisms and Permeability, Skeletal Muscle Physiology, Neurophysiology of Nerve Impulses, Endocrine System Physiology, Cardiovascular Dynamics, Cardiovascular Physiology, Respiratory System Mechanics, Chemical and Physical, Processes of Digestion, Renal System Physiology, Acid-Base Balance, Blood Analysis, Serological Testing . MARKET: Intended for those who want to gain a basic knowledge of physiology laboratory.

Note: For PhysioEx 9.0, there is one version only of PhysioEx. We have combined the previous A&P and Physiology versions of PhysioEx into one product.


  • 66 lab activities cover topics such as cell transport, skeletal muscle contraction, irritability and conductivity of neurons, hormones and metabolism, cardiovascular dynamics, respiratory processes, digestion, glomerular filtration, acid/base balance, and more are included.
  • Short video clips of certain lab equipment in use help students make connections between on-screen renderings and the real equipment they represent. The seven videos demonstrate the following experiments: Skeletal Muscle, Blood Typing, Cardiovascular Physiology, Water-Filled Spirometry, Nerve Impulses, BMR Measurement, and Cell Transport.
  • Review Sheets follow their respective exercise and ask the questions one would pose after the student has done the lab exercises.

What's New?

  • Brand new online format with easy step-by-step instructions so everything the student needs to do is located in one convenient place. After the student performs a step, instructions for the next step appear. Students gather data, analyze results, and check their understanding all on screen.
  • Stop & Think Questions and Predict Questions help students think about the connection between the activities and the physiological concepts they demonstrate. As the students go through the steps of an experiment, they’re asked Stop & Think questions about the activity and the relevant physiological principles to check their understanding before moving on. Students are also asked to make predictions about the results for an experiment to apply what they have learned before seeing the results.
  • Greater data variability in the results reflects more realistic results students would encounter in real wet-lab experiments.
  • Lots of opportunities to assess understanding via pre-lab quizzes, post-lab quizzes, and short-answer review sheets are offered to students for every activity.
  • Students can save their Lab Report as a PDF, which they can print and/or email to their instructor. A Test Bank of assignable pre-lab and post-lab quizzes for use with TestGen® or their course management system is provided for instructors.
