Heart Physiology and Pathophysiology, 4E, provides the foundation for the scientific understanding of heart function and dysfunction, and bridges the gap between basic cardiovascular science and clinical cardiology. This comprehensive text covers all the important aspects of the heart and vascular system. The most important and relevant disorders are presented, with emphasis on the mechanisms involved. The first three editions of this book developed a reputation as the leading reference in cardiovascular science for researchers and academic cardiologists. This recent edition has been updated, expanded, and includes a number of new contributors. It has also been remodeled to expand its usage as a text reference for cardiology residents, practicing cardiologists, and graduate students.
: Cardiologists as well as cell biologists, physiologists, pathologists, biophysicists, molecular geneticists, pharmacologists, neuroscientists, haematologists, microbiologists, and molecular biologists. Biomedical researchers and clinicians are likely to want this comprehensive reference.
