Description

Now in its second edition, this highly accessible monograph lays a foundation for understanding of the underlying concepts of normal cardiovascular function. Students of medicine and related disciplines welcome the book’s concise coverage as a practical partner or alternative to a more mechanistically oriented approach or an encyclopedic physiology text. A focus on well-established cardiovascular principles reflects recent, widely accepted research from the field.
