Part of Mosby's successful monograph series, CARDIOVASCULAR PHYSIOLOGY presents fundamental concepts clearly and concisely. Students gain a solid understanding on how the cardiovascular system functions in both health and disease. Throughout, excellent illustrations and consistent pedagogical features focus student learning. In addition, the clinical commentaries help students apply what they've learned to real-life clinical situations.
