About this book
This new edition reviews recent developments in genetics and molecular biology and new noninvasive measurement techniques that have enabled vast improvements in the measurement and understanding of cardiovascular hemodynamics. It is written in the same quick reference style as its predecessor to help the reader understand how hemodynamics can quantitatively characterize the function of the heart and arterial system, both separately and in combination, thereby revealing information about what genetic and molecular processes are of importance for cardiovascular function.
The authors of Snapshots of Hemodynamics have designed each chapter to provide a succinct overview of an individual topic in a concise and understandable format. Existing chapters have been extensively updated while new chapters have been included on pulmonary system hemodynamics and wave intensity analysis to ensure that it remains current in this ever-changing field. This important new edition therefore provides a thorough grounding in the discipline that will help graduate students as well as any clinical and basic researchers in the field.
