Description

Advances in Physiological Sciences, Volume 7: Cardiovascular Physiology: Microcirculation and Capillary Exchange is a collection of papers that tackles the advances in the understanding of microcirculation and capillary exchange. The text first details the coordination of microcirculatory function with oxygen demand in skeletal muscle, and then proceeds to discussing the role of intravascular pressure in the regulation of the microcirculation. Next, the selection covers the circulatory actions of prostacyclin and thromboxane, along with the routes of transcapillary transport. The last two parts of the text deal with the lymphatic system and blood-brain barrier. The book will be of great interest to health professionals, particularly cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons.
