A good understanding of cardiovascular physiology is fundamental to understanding cardiovascular disease, exercise performance, and many other aspects of human physiology.

It provides a comprehensive but accessible account of cardiovascular physiology, from the fundamentals of how the cardiovascular system works in both health and disease to more complex physiological? mechanisms and pathways. Learning Objectives, Overview and Summary sections are helpful for checking understanding. The book encourages active, problem-based learning through clinical cases and Further Reading sections featuring primary research literature, review papers, and books.
