Description:

Cardiovascular Physiology: A Clinical Approach provides a clear, clinically oriented exposition of the essentials of cardiovascular physiology for medical students, residents, nurses, and allied health professionals. This book is the second volume in The Integrated Physiology Series, a sequence of monographs that review physiology in a clinically meaningful way. The lecture-style format and conversational tone of the text offset the difficult and intimidating nature of the subject. Detailed illustrations and accompanying online animations help students truly understand key cardiovascular concepts most relevant for the care of patients. Learning objectives, thought questions, clinical cases, and USMLE-style review questions round out the teaching elements that challenge students and help them master the material. A companion website includes the fully searchable text and 40 animations.
