Pathophysiology THE BIOLOGIC BASIS FOR DISEASE IN ADULTS AND CHILDREN EIGHTH EDITION 2019 The word root “patho” is derived from the Greek word pathos, which means suffering. The Greek word root “logos” means discourse or, more commonly, system of formal study, and “physio” pertains to
functions of organisms. Generally, pathophysiology is the systematic
study of the functional changes in cells, tissues, and organs altered by
disease and/or injury. Important, however, is the inextricable component of suffering.

Knowledge of cellular biology as well as anatomy and physiology and the various organ systems of the body is an essential foundation for the study of pathophysiology. To understand pathophysiology the student must also use principles, concepts, and basic knowledge from other fields of study, including biology, genetics, immunology,
pathology, and epidemiology.

A number of terms are used to focus
the discussion of pathophysiology; they may be used interchangeably
at times, but that does not necessarily indicate that they have the same
meaning.
