Cardiac Adaptation and Failure


Advances in cellular physiology and molecular biology have now disclosed the metabolic changes and adaptational responses of the heart to various kinds of stresses. Topics covered in this volume include the regulation of myocardial proteins in mechanical overload, the alteration of adrenoceptors in the stressed heart, metabolic adaptation in cardiac hypertrophy, intracellular calcium metabolism in the ischemia-reperfused myocardium, calcium overload as a cause of myocardial stunning, acquisition of ischemic tolerance by ischemic preconditioning, factors that accelerate myocardial injury, and ventricular remodeling in the ischemic heart. As an update of the latest findings in basic cardiology, this book will benefit both researchers and clinical practitioners.

Wonders of the Human Body: Cardiovascular & Respiratory Systems


By (author): Dr Tommy Mitchell

There is absolutely no possibility that you were simply the process of random chance!

In Volume 2 of the Wonders of the Human Body series, Dr. Tommy Mitchell covers the intricate design of both the cardiovascular system, consisting of the blood, blood vessels, and heart, as well as the respiratory system that focuses on the transportation of oxygen through the body. From the level of the cells to the organs themselves, you will examine these systems in depth.

In the Cardiovascular & Respiratory Systems, prepare to discover the incredible design of the human heart, including

  • How blood moves through an incredible network of arteries and veins
  • What “blood pressure” is and the marvelous systems that help regulate it
  • How the respiratory system allows us to get the “bad air out” and the “good air in!”

Along the way, you will see what happens when things go wrong, but we made sure that you’ll find suggestions to help keep your heart and lungs healthy. Although the world insists that our bodies are merely the result of time and chance, as you examine your human body closely, you will see that it cannot be an accident. You can only be the living creation of our Master Designer!

Cardiology Clinical Questions


By (author): John P. Higgins, Asif Ali, David M. Filsoof

A complete point-of-care Q&A guide to clinical cardiology

Cardiac Clinical Questions answers more than one-hundred of the clinical cardiology questions most frequently asked of the authors during consultation. The book simulates the consultation process: consult question ?data collection? synthesis of data ? solution.

After clarifying the key concept, the critical data obtained includes the history, physical exam, EKG, imaging, and lab(s). A point-of-care solution is derived by inserting this data into simple logical equations. In addition, contraindications, discussions using evidence-based medicine, and references are included.

Cardiac Clinical Questions is Divided Into Nine Sections:

  • Diagnostic Testing
  • ACS
  • Valvular Diseases
  • Cardiac Diseases
  • Examination
  • Arrhythmias
  • Congenital Heart Diseases
  • Heart Failure and Hypertension
  • Medications

Cardiac Clinical Questions is the single-best resource for quickly translating the most current knowledge into practical, diagnostic real-time solutions.

Imaging of the Cardiovascular System, Thorax, and Abdomen (Volume 2)


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique used in biomedical imaging and radiology to visualize internal structures of the body. Because MRI provides excellent contrast between different soft tissues, the technique is especially useful for diagnosticimaging of the brain, muscles, and heart.

In the past 20 years, MRI technology has improved significantly with the introduction of systems up to 7 Tesla (7 T) and with the development of numerous post-processing algorithms such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional MRI (fMRI), and spectroscopic imaging. From these developments, the diagnostic potentialities of MRI have improved impressively with an exceptional spatial resolution and the possibility of analyzing the morphology and function of several kinds of pathology.

Given these exciting developments, the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Handbook: Imaging of the Cardiovascular System, Thorax, and Abdomen is a timely addition to the growing body of literature in the field. Offering comprehensive coverage of cutting-edge imaging modalities, this book:

  • Discusses MRI of the heart, blood vessels, lungs, breasts, diaphragm, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, adrenal glands, and gastrointestinal tract
  • Explains how MRI can be used in vascular, posttraumatic, postsurgical, and computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) applications
  • Highlights each organ’s anatomy and pathological processes with high-quality images
  • Examines the protocols and potentialities of advanced MRI scanners such as 7 T systems
  • Includes extensive references at the end of each chapter to enhance further study

Thus, the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Handbook: Imaging of the Cardiovascular System, Thorax, and Abdomen provides radiologists and imaging specialists with a valuable, state-of-the-art reference on MRI.

Cardiology Science and Technology


By (author): Dhanjoo N. Ghista

Cardiology Science and Technology comprehensively deals with the science and biomedical engineering formulations of cardiology. As a textbook, itaddresses the teaching, research, and clinical aspects of cardiovascular medical engineering and computational cardiology.

The books consists of two sections. The first section deals with left ventricular (LV) wall stress, cardiac contractility, ventricular remodeling, active wall stress and systolic pressure generation, and vector cardiogram characteristics, with applications in cardiology. The second section covers ECG signal analysis for arrhythmias detection, LV pumping (intra-LV, aortic and coronary flow) characteristics, and coronary bypass surgery design, with applications in cardiology and cardiac surgery.

This book is like an exciting train ride through the heart and into blood flows within its chamber, the coronary tree, the aorta, and finally into coronary flow and bypass grafting. The train starts from the heart’s central station and journeys through exciting places of heart wall stresses, cardiac contractility measures to characterize heart failure, and active stress generation to develop systolic heart pressure. We learn about cardiomyopathic heart remodeling and its surgical ventricular restoration, theory of ECG and vector cardiogram with medical applications, and heart rate variability signal processing to detect cardiac arrhythmias.

In the heart chamber, we witness the amazing intricate intra-ventricular flow patterns. Then, we study pressure pulse wave propagation into the aorta, determination of pulse wave velocity and arterial elasticity as a measure of arteriosclerosis. We climb into the mountainous coronary terrain and look at the fascinating scenery of coronary flows and myocardial perfusion that governs cardiac contractility. Finally, we arrive at coronary bypass grafting and witness the new sequential anastomosis design for enhanced patency.

This fascinating journey helps us to fully appreciate cardiology from the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics viewpoint. The book represents what can be termed as computational cardiology, and hence belongs to the emerging field of computational medicine.
