A good understanding of the physiology of the cardiovascular system is fundamental to the understanding of cardiovascular disease processes and cardiovascular physiology is a major component of all undergraduate courses in physiology, biomedical science and medicine as well as postgraduate study programs. This book provides all the information that these students and examination candidates will need, from an outline of the fundamentals of how the cardiovascular system works in both health and disease, through to a consideration of more complex physiological concepts. Coverage incorporates all significant advances that have been made in the field since the first edition was published in 1990. Specific developments to be incorporated in the new edition including the contribution of wave reflection to systolic hypertension, the role of vsacular kinases in contraction, a fuller account of myocardial ischaemia and advances in understanding cardiac failure and arrhythmgenesis.
