Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Merrill Tarr, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This book covers the properties and functions of various cardiac ion channels, transporters, and receptors.
Purpose: The book is a tribute to Professor Hiroshi Irisawa, written by his former students and research collaborators.
Audience: The primary audience for this book will be working scientists in cardiac research, especially electrophysiologists.
Features: This book cover a wide variety of important topics in a very concise and well-written manner.
Assessment: This book is well written by research experts and it will serve the working scientist and graduate student well as a reference source a wide variety of important topics. I doubt that it will be useful to the average medical student, although advanced cardiology students may find it useful. The authors of most chapters, I think, assumed that the reader would be fairly knowledgeable in the subject matter. I read almost the entire book and greatly enjoyed it. The book clarified some topics for me, and I plan to incorporate some information from this book in teaching cardiac electrophysiology to medical students.
