Analysis and Assessment of Cardiovascular Function

Overview

The study of cardiovascular function is vital to contemporary biomedical research. However, integration between cellular and subcellular research and organ-level studies is often lacking, as is integration of clinical and basic investigation. This book examines cardiovascular system function from the perspectives of assessment and analysis, with a focus on evaluating function at different anatomical levels using a combination of analytical, experimental, and clinical ...

Overview

The study of cardiovascular function is vital to contemporary biomedical research. However, integration between cellular and subcellular research and organ-level studies is often lacking, as is integration of clinical and basic investigation. This book examines cardiovascular system function from the perspectives of assessment and analysis, with a focus on evaluating function at different anatomical levels using a combination of analytical, experimental, and clinical measurements.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
