5.0 out of 5 stars Advanced Cardiovascular Physiology Book December 19, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very thorough book that covers all aspects of cardiovascular physiology. The book definitely has a research-based theme to it; the authors use figures from research done to illustrate points. The book is not too long but is dense with material. You will likely re-read sentences to ensure that you understood certain concepts. Some people may not like the lack of hand-holding - but this is an advanced book so only purchase if you are already familiar with basic physiology concepts. The authors state that the book is intended for medical and graduate students.

We used this book in our class "Applied Cardiovascular Physiology", for my graduate Exercise Physiology program. While our weekly PowerPoint lectures didn't directly reference this book, having read the material for each upcoming chapter ahead of the lecture prepared me for the concepts taught in class. However, I don't know that I would have learned as much without the lectures, meaning that this book alone may not be enough (for some people) to grasp the material. In that case you can use Wikipedia to expand concepts from this book, as I also did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book August 31, 2008
Our cardio physio teacher "highly" recommended this book and I must say that it does provide a great introduction to cardiovascular physio.

The price isn't too bad and the chapters are not terribly long. The case questions at the end of each chapter help you to solidify concepts.

The book is detailed and well illustrated. However, in contrast to other handbooks all figures are of the same color (blue). This make the figures more homogenious for perception and (probably) not so easy to recall.

Amazing engineering and objective explanations of the cardio physioology in a small and well explained book, not the medschool kind.
