Normal and Abnormal Blood Pressure (Physiology, Pathophysiology and Treatment)This textbook integrates physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology of normal and abnormal blood pressure at a level appropriate for first and second year medical students, as well as for students in allied health sciences. The first section of the book lays a foundation in the physiological basis for blood pressure and its regulation by emphasizing biophysical principles, integrative physiological regulatory systems and cellular mechanisms. These concepts are then used in the second section t…

Pathophysiology of Respiration [Edited By Meir H. Kryger]This book was written for those who are interested in how function is disturbed when respiratory disease is present. Our approach is to link pathology and physiology, and we assume the reader has some familiarity with both. Thus this volume will be of greatest value to medical students who have completed their basic sciences and are beginning their clinical studies. Others who will find this volume useful are house staff, trainees in respirator medicine and respirator technology students….

Physiology, E-Book (Costanzo Physiology)Physiology is a comprehensive presentation of core physiologic concepts with a focus on mechanisms. Renowned physiology instructor Linda S. Costanzo covers important concepts in the field, both at the organ system and cellular levels. Easy to read and user-friendly, the revised fourth edition stresses essential and relevant content with absolute clarity and includes concise step-by-step explanations complemented by numerous tables and abundant illustrations. It provides information on the underl…

Flow-Dependent Regulation of Vascular FunctionThis book brings together current research on the way in which blood flow can regulate vascular function–with particular emphasis on vascular tone. Evidence that this occurs is derived from the study of isolated cellular and tissue systems, in vitro vascular segments and vascular beds from both animals and humans. It seems likely that flow-sensitive mechanisms are found in most arteries and veins. Considerable attention is devoted in this book to the role of the endothelium. It also examines th…

Pathophysiology of Blood Disorders (Lange Medical Books)A concise full-color review of the mechanisms of blood diseases and disorders – based on a Harvard Medical School hematology course2015 Doody’s Core Title!4 STAR DOODY’S REVIEW!”This is a superb book. Deceptively small, yet packs a wallop. The emphasis on principles instead of practice is welcome….The text is clear, concise, and surprisingly approachable for what could have been a very dense and dry discussion. I could not put this book down and read it entirely in one sitting. When was the …

Hemodynamic Rounds: Interpretation of Cardiac Pathophysiology from Pressure Waveform AnalysisThe essential resource on cardiac hemodynamics-now in a new edition Hemodynamic Rounds, Third Edition is intended to help cardiologists and other members of the medical community enhance their understanding of cardiac physiology and its associated hemodynamic presentations in health and disease, including the basic principles of flow and pressure measurements; systemic as well as coronary hemodynamics in normal and diseased states; and changes in hemodynamics following interventional procedures…

The Physics of Coronary Blood Flow (Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering)The fields of biological and medical physics and biomedical engineering are broad, multidisciplinary and dyanmic. They lie at the crossroads of frontier – search in physics, biology, chemistry, and medicine. The Biological & Me- cal Physics/Biomedical Engineering Series is intended to be comprehensive, covering a broad range of topics important to the study of the physical, che- cal and biological sciences. Its goal is to provide scientists and engineers with textbooks, monographs, and reference…
