About this book

Introduction

Hemodynamics make it possible to characterize in a quantitative way, the function of the heart and arterial system, thereby producing information about which genetic and molecular processes, and which abnormalities, are of importance for understanding cardiovascular mechanisms in health and disease. Snapshots of Hemodynamics: An Aid for Clinical Research and Graduate Education, Second Edition by Nico Westerhof, Nikos Stergiopulos and Mark I.M. Noble is a quick reference guide designed to help basic and clinical researchers as well as graduate students to understand hemodynamics. The layout of the book provides short and independent chapters with teaching diagrams as well as clear descriptions of the essentials of basic and applied principles of hemodynamics. References are provided at the end of each chapter for further reading and reference. Nico Westerhof, PhD is affiliated with the Laboratory for Physiology at VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Nikos Stergiopulos, PhD is affiliated with the Laboratory of Hemodynamics and Cardiovascular Technology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland. Mark IM Noble, DSc, MD, PhD is affiliated with Cardiovascular Medicine at Aberdeen University, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Aberdeen Scotland.
