This book is the second in The Integrated Physiology Series, a sequence of monographs that review physiology in a clinically meaningful way. The accessibility and conversational tone of the text offset the difficult and intimidating nature of the subject. Detailed illustrations and accompanying online animated figures help students truly understand key cardiovascular concepts most relevant for the care of patients. Learning objectives, thought questions, clinical cases, and USMLE-style review questions round out the teaching elements that challenge students and help them master the material.

A companion website includes the fully searchable text and 40 animated figures.
