This new edition is written in the same quick reference style as its predecessor to help clinical and basic researchers, as well as graduate students, understand hemodynamics. Hemodynamics makes it possible to characterize, in a quantitative way and often with noninvasive techniques, the function of the heart and the arterial system, individually and in combination. Snapshots of Hemodynamics provides a thorough grounding in the discipline that will help any medical professional and researcher in the field. The authors have designed each chapter such that it gives a succinct overview of individual topics in a concise and understandable format. Each chapter of this new edition has been extensively updated while new chapters have been included on pulmonary hemodynamics and wave intensity analysis. The new edition presents the newest current information on hemodynamics in this ever-changing field.
