Circulatory Physiology—Cardiac Output and Its Regulation ed 2.

Arthur Selzer, MD

The second edition of this book appeared a decade after the first one. Rapid changes in the field of circulatory physiology necessitated a virtual rewriting of the book. Its 29 chapters are divided into five sections: (1) normal values and method for measurements of cardiac output; (2) regulation of pumping action; (3) regulation of venous return; (4) graphic, algebraic and computer analysis of output regulation; and (5) output regulation in specific physiological and pathological states.

The authoritative discussion and critical review of the subject, presented in an easy-to-understand manner, amply illustrated, makes this an important introduction into cardiac physiology for medical students, scientists, and physicians involved in basic aspects of cardiology. The clinician-cardiologist will find in it an important reference book in conjunction with cardiac catheterization studies—both in terms of the discussion of methodology and the presentation of pathophysiological states in patients with cardiac disease.
