About this book


With the medical device industry growing at an incredible pace, and the overall understanding of the molecular basis for disease on the rise, today’s bio-medical engineers face a constant challenge to re-tool or reinvent devices that remain in step with medical science. In Handbook of Cardiac Anatomy, Physiology, and Devices, Second Edition, leading experts from the University of Minnesota’s renowned Lillehei Heart Institute and scientists from Medtronic, Inc. have thoroughly updated and expanded upon the critically acclaimed first edition with the latest information on the anatomic features, underlying physiologic mechanisms, and treatments for diseases of the heart. Key chapters address animal models for cardiac research, cardiac mapping systems, heart-valve disease, and genomics-based tools and technology. Once again, a companion compact disk offers unique insights into the working heart, providing color images and movies that enhance the understanding of key points within the text. Comprehensive and state-of-the art, the Handbook of Cardiac Anatomy, Physiology, and Devices, Second Edition provides clinicians and biomedical engineers alike with the authoritative information and background they need to work on and implement tomorrow’s generation of life-saving cardiac devices.
