Editorial Reviews

A reference that provides the foundation of the basic science aspects of cardiac function and dysfunction, bridging the gap between basic cardiovascular science and clinical science. Divided into two major sections on cardiac muscle and coronary circulation, the volume integrates all relevant aspects of the factors influencing the function of the heart under normal and several abnormal conditions. It also provides a foundation for understanding of the mechanism of action of various types of cardioactive drugs, including antiarrhythmic drugs and positive inotropic agents. This revised and updated edition adds 14 new chapters, including two on the molecular structure of ion channels, and several on the ionic channels of myocardial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells, and endothelial cells.
