Key Features

  • An easy-to-read, step by step explanation of how water is distributed, how it moves, how this aides in oxygen delivery and how this is regulated in the human body.
  • Presents a complex and detailed topic in an original way that will allow students to understand more complex textbooks and explanations


This original six chapter book will briefly review and integrate the basic concepts behind water distribution and movement in the body. This fills a knowledge gap that most medical and undergraduate physiology students acquire when these topics are studied separately. As of now, there is no textbook that fully integrates renal, cardiovascular and water physiology in a clear understandable manner. The book is intended primarily for medical students and undergraduate physiology students. Chapters include: 1) Water and its Distribution; 2) Water Dynamics; 3) Fluid Handling by the Heart and Blood Vessels; 4) Fluid Handling by the Kidneys; 5) Water and Oxygen Delivery; 6) Integration in the Response to Hemorrhage, Volume Depletion, and Water Redistribution.


Medical students and undergraduate physiology students.

Juan Pablo Arroyo

After receiving his medical degree with honors from the University of La Salle in Mexico City, Dr. Arroyo pursued a PhD in Biomedical Science at the National Autonomous University in Mexico City (UNAM), focusing on renal ion transport physiology. During this time he was appointed Adjunct Professor of Physiology at the University of La Salle and the Panamerican University School of Medicine. He then completed a two year Post-Doctoral fellowship in Renal Genetics and Hypertension at the Genetics Department of the Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Arroyo is now a Tinsley R. Harrison Society Scholar at Vanderbilt University, where he is undergoing his clinical training in Internal Medicine and Nephrology. Dr. Arroyo has been a guest speaker at several international renal physiology conferences, and is interested in clinical medicine, basic science research and active teaching in the classroom.

Adam J. Schweickert

Dr. Schweickert earned his medical doctorate at the University of Toledo in Ohio. He went on to complete his Pediatrics residency at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. During this time, he volunteered at multiple international clinics throughout Central and South America. Dr. Schweickert spent several years teaching as a Pediatric Hospitalist before taking time off to travel the world with his wife. He presently works as a clinician in the Pediatric ICU at St. Barnabas Medical Center in New Jersey.
