Cardiovascular System Dynamics


Cardiovascular System Dynamics


$339.46


This book offers a novel approach to the study of the mammalian cardiovascular system. Instead of focusing on a particular part of the system or on a particular group of techniques, or approaching the system from a particular point of view, it stresses a balanced presentation of ideas: –all the major component parts of the system are discussed, as well as the behavior of the system as an integrated whole –both basic and clinical viewpoints are represented –both detailed analysis and comprehensive synthesis are offered. In addition, trends in modern instrumentation and the use of computers in improving patient care are important and recurrent themes. Spirited discussions of current controversies and philosophies highlight the presentations. The 62 papers in this volume were invited for a major international conference, held in April 1975, which marked the coming of age of this field and led to the founding of the Cardiovascular System Dynamics Society. The conference brought together outstanding researchers in the life sciences (biology, physiology, medicine) and the physical sciences (biophysics, bioengineering) in order to integrate their findings more intricately and to chart the present state and future directions of the field. Since the cardiovascular system has been one of the first areas to receive attention under the newly emerging symbiosis between engineering and medicine, the book also serves a useful secondary purpose as a model of what can be accomplished by such integrated effort. The papers are organized into 12 sections. The first 9 offer a tour of the cardiovascular system, with papers arranged within each section to lead the reader from theoretical to clinical viewpoints. Included are sections on cardiac muscle, coronary circulation, ventricular dynamics, systemic arterial tree, microcirculation, systemic veins, pulmonary vasculature, control mechanisms in specific vascular beds, and cardiovascular system control. The last 3 sections offer tutorial overviews of theoretical and experimental methods applied to the cardiovascular system and of cardiovascular instrumentation and computer analysis.

Human Cardiovascular Control


Human Cardiovascular Control


$115.83


This is a new and comprehensive analysis of reflex and hormonal control of the human cardiovascular system that grew out of Rowell’s 1986 volume, Human Circulation: Regulation During Physical Stress, and incorporates more recent findings. The goal is to assist students, physiologists and clinicians to understand control of pressure, vascular volume, and blood flow by examining the cardiovascular system during orthostasis and exercise, two stresses that most affect these variables. These stresses are employed to analyze the passive properties of the vascular system and provide a basis for a detailed examination of how these properties are modified by mechanical, neural, and humoral factors. Interactive effects of the vasculature on cardiac performance are stressed to underline the importance of autonomic control supplemented by muscle pumping to maintain adequate ventricular filling pressure, particularly during exercise. Limitations in cardiac pumping ability, in oxygen diffusion from lungs to blood and from blood to active muscle, in metabolism, and in neural control of organ blood flow are analyzed to explain how total oxygen consumption is limited. The unsolved mystery is the nature of signals that govern the cardiovascular responses to exercise. This is discussed in a new and critical synthesis of ideas and evidence concerning the specific "error signals" that are sensed and then corrected by activation of cardiac and vascular effectors during exercise.

$43.75


Orachel is a powerful cardiovascular support formula that utilizes a broad-spectrum therapeutic approach. It will help maintain a healthy circulatory system by binding a heavy or toxic metals and plaque-causing materials. Did you know that your arteries could be over 80% clogged before you have any symptoms? Harmful buildup of plaque in the circulatory system causes a lack of blood flow to tissues including sex organs, heart and skin. This decreased blood flow affects the tissue and organ function and causes premature aging and in some cases can progress to Coronary Heart Disease. Clearing the arteries and promoting good circulation is a major key to longevity and health.

Cardiovascular Mathematics: Modeling and Simulation of the Circulatory System


Cardiovascular Mathematics: Modeling and Simulation of the Circulatory System


$113.07


Cardiovascular diseases have a major impact in Western countries. Mathematical models and numerical simulations can aid the understanding of physiological and pathological processes, complementing the information provided to medical doctors by medical imaging and other non-invasive means, and opening the possibility of a better diagnosis and more in-depth surgical planning.This book offers a mathematically sound and up-to-date foundation to the training of researchers, and serves as a useful reference for the development of mathematical models and numerical simulation codes. It is structured into different chapters, written by recognized experts in the field, but it features a common thread with consistency of notation and expressions and systematic cross-referencing. Many fundamental issues are faced, such as: the mathematical representation of vascular geometries extracted from medical images, modelling blood rheology and the complex multilayer structure of the vascular tissue, and its possible pathologies, the mechanical and chemical interaction between blood and vascular walls; the different scales coupling local and systemic dynamics. All these topics introduce challenging mathematical and numerical problems, demanding for advanced analysis and simulation techniques. This book is addressed to graduate students and researchers in the field of bioengineering, applied mathematics and medicine, wishing to engage themselves in the fascinating task of modeling how the cardiovascular system works.

Animal Models in Cardiovascular Research


Animal Models in Cardiovascular Research


$203.84


This new edition of Animal Models in Cardiovascular Research describes historical and recent advances in our understanding of the cardiovascular system from studies conducted in a variety of animal models. Since the last edition we have witnessed an explosion in the use of both congenic and transgenic animals. The use of specific knock-in and knock-out transgenic models has resulted in an avalanche of genetic, molecular and protein-based information that, potentially, could result in an amazing new array of treatment and management options. However, the results of these studies also introduce a sometime bewildering array of redundant, overlapping and competing molecular pathways involved in both physiological and pathological responses. This third edition is designed to provide a better basis for understanding and using animal models in the current climate of background knowledge and information. It is significantly different than the previous two editions. Chapter 1 is updated from the previous editions addressing general principles of animal selection. It also provides expanded tables of normal physiological values for easy reference. Chapter 2 covers preoperative care, pre-anesthesia, chemical restraint, and includes a significantly expanded section on pain recognition and analgesia particularly in rodents. Chapter 3 provides a summary of normal cardiovascular parameters obtained from intact, awake animals. The data have been rearranged in outline rather than the previous tabular form hopefully resulting in easier reference. Chapter 4 addresses the techniques, problems and pitfalls of measuring cardiac function in animals. There is an emphasis on the proper use of these measurements to develop new treatment and management strategies as well as using them to study mechanisms of disease. Chapter 5 emphasizes the techniques, problems and pitfalls involved in the measurement of arterial function and ventricular/arterial coupling dynamics. Again the emphasis is on the use of these parameters to develop new treatment and management strategies and for studying the mechanisms of disease. Chapter 6 is a all new chapter dealing specifically with the problems and pitfalls inherent in using isolated heart preparations. The need for this chapter became apparent because so much information was published using obviously non-physiologic preparations. The use of both pumping and non-pumping preparations are described along with techniques necessary for using hearts from larger species where oxygen carrying capacity of the perfusate is critical. The importance of hypoxia and anoxia in the interpretation of results is discussed. Chapter 7 focuses on the cardiovascular effects of the post-operative analgesic drugs commonly used today and how to avoid potential problems resulting from these effects when reporting experimental data. These data are also presented in outline form rather than the tabular format used in the two previous editions. Chapter 8 addresses th

Pollock's Textbook of Cardiovascular Disease and Rehabilitation


Pollock’s Textbook of Cardiovascular Disease and Rehabilitation


$97.99


"Pollock’s Textbook of Cardiovascular Disease and Rehabilitation" honors the legacy of the late Michael L. Pollock, PhD (1936-1998). Pollock, an innovative and influential cardiac researcher and clinician, was highly regarded for his substantial educational and scientific contributions to the field of exercise science and sports medicine. This text presents an approach to cardiovascular disease rehabilitation as comprehensive as the vision that Dr. Pollock so passionately pursued during his 35-year career. "Pollock’s Textbook of Cardiovascular Disease and Rehabilitation" addresses developing topics encompassing all aspects of the cardiovascular system. This text breaks away from Medicare-driven reimbursement paradigms for "cardiac rehabilitation" to discuss the entire cardiovascular system, not only coronary heart disease. In doing so, it provides a much-needed perspective for health professionals and their patients, especially those patients who need help but do not fit traditional entry criteria for cardiac rehabilitation. The text’s editors, each a premier cardiovascular science expert, have selected an internationally recognized list of contributors to provide the deliberate and systematic coverage of cardiovascular topics in five comprehensive parts. They begin by laying a foundation that covers the historical and epidemiologic overview of the evolution and current state of cardiovascular disease (CVD). This consists of a discussion of the use of exercise as medicine as well as a description of interventions, clinical guidelines, and outcomes. The text continues by addressing pathophysiology, diagnosis of conditions (such as peripheral arterial disease, stroke, and aneurysm), and medical management strategies. Readers will find a current pharmacologic review of medications, the mechanism of action, side effects, and exercise interactions, in addition to current surgical techniques. They will also find an entire chapter dedicated to heart disease in women. Often overshadowed by the attention given to cancer, heart disease is the predominant killer of women, yet few texts cover the topic as thoroughly as Pollock’s Textbook. Because the female population presents specific concerns and cardiovascular complications, this chapter alerts physicians and health practitioners of the elements they must consider when managing heart disease in these patients. Once readers understand the theories behind diagnosis and management of CVD, they are led through the facets of lifestyle issues associated with CVD. Research-based information provides outlines for endurance, strength, and flexibility training specific to CVD; nutrition and dietary factors as well as pharmacotherapies associated with reducing CVD risk; and rehabilitation strategies for specific cardiovascular conditions. More specific information follows on common comorbidities and complicating circumstances associated with cardiovascular disease. Part IV

The literature relating to the learned control of autonomic processes, especially cardiovascular processes demonstrating that the activities of visceral response systems may be modifi ed by operant reinforcement and biofeedback procedures, has grown exponentially. This research seems to show behavioral properties in the cardiovascular system that were previously believed to be exclusive attributes of the somatic response systems; the implications of this for possible therapeutic use have received widespread publicity. Questions remained unanswered-about the nature of "voluntary" control and the conditions necessary for establishing it, the reciprocal effects of conditioned changes in cardiovascular and psychological or behavioral functioning, the use of cardiovascular events to index behavioral states, and the principles and techniques whereby operant conditioning of the cardiovascular system can be clinically applied.

Questions follow An Introduction to Cardiovascular Physiology’s table of contents, and the author has set at least one question on each chapter’s learning objective to help the student assess their progress against the set objectives. The questions are designed to test basic understanding, fundamental principles and medical relevance, and they avoid excessive detai. Most are in a multiple choice, True/False format, with a sprinkling of other question styles including extended matching questions, where the reader chooses the best answer from a list, and testing little numerical prolems. Also included with the answers are "More Information" boxes that include a brief description, and links to relevant information and figures from a range of chapters, thus encouraging integration of learning across the subject.

A Handbook of Mouse Models of Cardiovascular Disease [With CDROM]


A Handbook of Mouse Models of Cardiovascular Disease [With CDROM]


$196.82


The availability of well-defined genetic strains and the ability to create transgenic and knockout mice makes mouse models extremely valuable biomedical tools. Their suitability as an experimental system for cardiovascular research depends on the individual investigator’s ability to manipulate the mice surgically. Many mouse models require microsurgical techniques, which hitherto could not be performed without practical training. This comprehensive handbook enables scientists to develop these models in their own laboratories. "A Handbook of Mouse Models of Cardiovascular Disease" is the first book to address pathology in mouse models of heart disease, providing the reader with essential information on technical assays in artificially created models. It includes background information on individual cardiovascular diseases, describes detailed methods and materials used for establishing each mouse model, discusses the problems that may appear in the experiments, and provides examples of applications of the model. "A Handbook of Mouse Models of Cardiovascular Disease: " Describes mouse models of all important cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis, atrial fibrillation and thrombosis Features videos of key experimental procedures on the accompanying CD, allowing researchers to learn the techniques by directly watching the whole operational procedure Describes how to establish each experimental model with detailed protocols and tips on dealing with common operational problems Highlights potential applications of each model in areas such as pathogenesis, gene transfer, therapy and pathophysiology This handbook is an invaluable resource for researchers in cardiovascular disease, pathology, physiology, interested in the mechanism of vascular disorders and therapeutic approaches. It is also relevant to clinicians seeking to understand the pathology of cardiovascular disease and the rationale for interventions, and of interest to the pharmaceutical industry and all those involved in drug discovery/development for cardiovascular disease.

Cardiovascular and Respiratory Response to Psychophysiological Tasks


Cardiovascular and Respiratory Response to Psychophysiological Tasks


$85.99


Beat-to-beat oscillations in heart-rate and systolic arterial-pressure are known to be modulated by the autonomic nervous system. Their characteristics are used in psychophysiology to assess the autonomic reaction to psychological/cognitive challenges (Pe. However, factors other than autonomic modulation may strongly influence the estimation of these cardiovascular indexes (CI). Here, two such confounding factors were investigated in detail. First, the between-task and inter-individual differences in respiratory patterns, especially in PC involving speech were found to be strongly reflected in the CI. The second factor is the presence of within-task dynamics in the CI reaction to PC. Since these two factors are intrinsic in the reaction to PC, they can have a profound impact on the indirect estimates of autonomic reaction through CI. Controlling them during PC may be difficult. However, their effects should be minimized, for example by avoiding PC involving speech and choosing appropriate data epochs for the analysis. These effects must also be considered in the physiological interpretation of CI, in order to ensure their usefulness in future research.

A Nationwide Framework for Surveillance of Cardiovascular and Chronic Lung Diseases


A Nationwide Framework for Surveillance of Cardiovascular and Chronic Lung Diseases


$45.87


Chronic diseases are common and costly, yet they are also among the most preventable health problems. Comprehensive and accurate disease surveillance systems are needed to implement successful efforts which will reduce the burden of chronic diseases on the U.S. population. A number of sources of surveillance data–including population surveys, cohort studies, disease registries, administrative health data, and vital statistics–contribute critical information about chronic disease. But no central surveillance system provides the information needed to analyze how chronic disease impacts the U.S. population, to identify public health priorities, or to track the progress of preventive efforts. A Nationwide Framework for Surveillance of Cardiovascular and Chronic Lung Diseases outlines a conceptual framework for building a national chronic disease surveillance system focused primarily on cardiovascular and chronic lung diseases. This system should be capable of providing data on disparities in incidence and prevalence of the diseases by race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and geographic region, along with data on disease risk factors, clinical care delivery, and functional health outcomes. This coordinated surveillance system is needed to integrate and expand existing information across the multiple levels of decision making in order to generate actionable, timely knowledge for a range of stakeholders at the local, state or regional, and national levels. The recommendations presented in A Nationwide Framework for Surveillance of Cardiovascular and Chronic Lung Diseases focus on data collection, resource allocation, monitoring activities, and implementation. The report also recommends that systems evolve along with new knowledge about emerging risk factors, advancing technologies, and new understanding of the basis for disease. This report will inform decision-making among federal health agencies, especially the Department of Health and Human Services; public health and clinical practitioners; non-governmental organizations; and policy makers, among others.

Mortality and Maldevelopment Part I: Congenital Cardiovascular Malformations


Mortality and Maldevelopment Part I: Congenital Cardiovascular Malformations


$13.41


Congenital malformations are worldwide occurrences, they know no national borders, do not distinguish between races, ethnicities, rich or poor. These severe physical abnormalities, present at birth, happen more often than is usually realized, once in every 33 births. They strike every part of the body, limbs, head, heart, and all others. The most frequent of them all are the many types of malformations of the cardiovascular system, the heart and its blood vessels, which happen in about once in every 250 births. Study of these conditions during the twentieth century took many forms, revolving about examination and analysis of their causes, genetic, nongenetic, and complex. To aid in unraveling the complexities of this causation, various influences on their frequency are considered, among them social conditions, maternal health, birthweight, newborn maturity. And of course the known and possible environmental bases of their occurrence are fully described. The relation of infant death to cardiovascular malformation is noted; and puzzlement that the level of such deaths had not kept pace with the reduction of infant death itself and of that associated with other kinds of malformations during this period. An introductory record of the history of perinatal mortality in the last three centuries gives foundation for the discussion of death in contemporary decades.
