Book Description

November 15, 2010 1608311716 978-1608311712 Fifth

Dr. Arnold Katz's internationally acclaimed classic, Physiology of the Heart, is now in its thoroughly revised Fifth Edition, incorporating the latest molecular biology research and extensively exploring the clinical applications of these findings. In the single authored, expert voice that is this book's unique strength, Dr. Katz provides a comprehensive overview of the physiological and biophysical basis of cardiac function, beginning with structure and proceeding to biochemistry, biophysics, and pathophysiology in arrhythmias, ischemia, and heart failure. Emphasis is on the interrelationships of basic processes among the cell, cardiac muscle function, and the biophysics of contractile and electrical behavior. This edition includes new material on cell signaling and molecular biology.

This is truly a text I wish I had a few decades ago. My training had used another author, too bad. The book condition was immaculate and the delivery was quicker than expected.

This is a very comprehensive book that covers the basics of both the physiology and the molecular details. I found it extremely useful as someone not initially from the field and would recommend it to everyone looking to learn more about cardiology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as previous version February 4, 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I didn't buy the latest version, and I'm glad I didn't because it's about the same when I compared them. Be prepared for this to be dense, and only black and white pics. If you are looking for animated, fun pictures this is not the book for you. For my purposes this book is very straightforward despite it being dense.
