The lecture notes focus on fluid mechanical phenomena that occur in the
human cardiovascular system and aim to contribute to better understanding of the circulatory system.
Topics covered includes: Pressure and ow in the cardiovascular system, Simple
model of the vascular system, Fluid mechanics of the heart, Newtonian flow in
blood vessels, Mechanics of the vessel wall, Wave phenomena in blood vessels,
Non-Newtonian ow in blood vessels, Flow patterns in the micro-circulation.

objective of this lecture note is for the students to gain an
understanding of the structure and function of the cardiovascular and
respiratory systems through lectures, laboratory exercises, patient
presentation and small group conferences.
This guide covers the following topics:
Heart Disease: Why Should You Care, What You Need To Know About Heart Disease,
Major Risk Factors, Smoking, High Blood Pressure, High Blood Cholesterol, What
Else Affects Heart Disease, Heart Health Is a Family Affair.

This book covers all aspects
and the most vibrant topics of ischemic stroke research: from basic sciences to
latest methods of clinical applications. The authors give an overview of what
has importance today in stroke research and also strike future ideas.
artery atherosclerosis is the most common cardiac pathology, which is the
primary cause of cardiac mortality. Coronary artery stenosis usually involves
the proximal portion of the larger epicardial coronary arteries, but diffuse
coronary artery disease is also not rare. Topics covered includes: Regadenoson,
Noninvasive Imaging for the Assessment of Coronary Artery Disease, Non-Invasive
Imaging of Coronary Artery Disease, Optical Coherence Tomography for the
Assessment of Coronary Plaque Vulnerability, Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery,
Surgical Treatment in Diffuse Coronary Artery Disease, Mechanical Complications
of Myocardial Infarction, Diabetes and Coronary Artery Disease, Obesity and
Heart Diseases, a Worsened Epidemic in Recent Decades, Prevention of Coronary
Artery Disease through Diet.
We know a lot
of things about cardiac rhythms and their abnormalities, but there are
some things that are still waiting to be discovered and, therefore,
require more study. In this book, the authors put a little light on
those matters, which are not well known yet. The authors have exposed
some of such cardiac arrhythmias, especially those affecting the atria
of the heart. Topics covered includes: Atrial Flutter- Diagnosis,
Management and Treatment, Recent Advances in the Noninvasive Study of
Atrial Conduction Defects Preceding Atrial Fibrillation, Clinical
Significance of Arrhythmogenic Foci in Atrial Fibrillation,
Tachycardia-Induced Cardiomyopathy, Review on Amiodarone as an
book offers the best practice advice on the care of adult patients (aged 18
years or older) who have symptoms or a diagnosis of chronic heart failure. It
defined the most effective combination of symptoms, signs and investigations
required to establish a diagnosis of heart failure, and those which would
influence therapy or provide important prognostic information.

An electrocardiogram is an electrical recording of
the heart and is used in the investigation of heart disease. This library is a
collection of realistic looking recordings which will help improve your ECG
skills. Topics coverd are: ischaemic heart disease, hypertrophy patterns,
atrioventricular (AV) block, bundle branch block, supraventricular rhythms,
ventricular rhythms, Wolff Parkinson White syndrome.

Risk Factors, Cancer and the Heart, Cardiovascular Syndromes in Systemic
Diseases, Congenital Heart Disease in the Adult, Coronary Artery Disease,
Electrophysiology Procedures, Invasive Diagnostic, Interventional, and Surgical
Procedures, Myocardial Disease and Cardiomyopathies, Pericardial Disease,
