Overview

The study of cardiovascular function is vital to contemporary biomedic al research. However, integration between cellular and subcellular res earch and organ-level studies is often lacking, as is integration of c linical and basic investigation. This book examines cardiovascular sys tem function from the perspectives of assessment and analysis, with a focus on evaluating function at different anatomical levels using a co mbination of analytical, experimental and clinical measurements.
