Editorial Reviews

Review

"With this new edition, this classic text should continue as the standard reference in the field of arterial hemodynamics. There are several excellent new chapters on various disease processes and techniques for the measurement of arterial function. These chapters significantly add to the value of the new edition to cardiologists and basic researchers."--Doody's Journal

Format: Hardcover
This book is an amazing reference. It is a hardcore scientific look at the flow of blood through arteries. It's about time this edition was released, because the last edition is more than ten years old. The book is separated into chapters that are really monographs on their respective subjects. The authors do an excellent job of giving a bird's eye view of each topic and then go into far more detail than most people will be able to understand (myself included). But don't let that scare you away from the book. Even if you don't understand all the physics and thermodynamics, you can still grasp the principles.

If you have read any of the authors' journal articles, you know that their view of arterial bloodflow is much deeper than the mainstream medical community. This book explains the prevailing thought and then shows the shortcomings of conventional wisdom and presents the research that leads to a deeper understanding. Please do not think that this makes the book controversial. It is simply that most education on vascular physiology is nowhere near this deep or comprehensive. This is not truly a textbook. It is the ultimate reference for arterial bloodflow. Every serious student of the heart or vascular physiology should have this book in their library, and every researcher should have it on their shelf.

Some of the material is more scientific and staticistical than I understand, but my heart problem and high pretension are explained. Also facts about nutrition and causes of health problems were identified very emphatically
