Overview

Cutting-Edge Guide to the Understanding and Applications of Blood Flow

Written by a distinguished professor and researcher, Biofluid Mechanics in Cardiovascular Systems is one of the first books to take an interdisciplinary approach to the subject. This unique resource combines engineering principles with cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology to give biomedical engineers essential background for designing and implementing arterial grafts, anastomosis devices, and heart valves.

Detailed coverage of mechanical engineering theories and their practical application to biological functions

  • Presents an engineering analysis of the cardiovascular system relevant to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases
  • Specifically designed for biomedical engineering professionals and students, it looks at the important area of biofluidics from an engineering perspective rather than a clinical one
  • Explains the functional anatomy and physiology of the human heart
  • Examines the pressure-flow relationship in arteries and the elastic properties of arterial walls
  • Treats the application of imaging techniques on left ventricular dynamics
  • Presents theoretical and experimental studies of pulsatile flow in large vessels
