(BQ) Part 2 book "Advances in hemodynamic research" presents the following contents: Congenital heart disease and circulatory physiology, hemodynamics in coronary arterial disease and myocardial perfusion, application to cardiovascular surgery, reperfusion hemodynamics as an early predictor of cardiac function in a DCDD setting,...
Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathophysiology for Allied
Health, first edition, is an introductory book to the body
systems for medical assisting students. It acquaints students
with basic information about all of the body systems.
The book speaks directly to the student, with chapter introductions,
case studies, and chapter summaries written
to engage the student’s attention.
When referring to patients in the third person, we have
alternated between passages that describe a male patient
and passages that describe a female patient.
The main method of cognition of the performance of biological systems is their
mathematical modeling. The essence of this method should reflect the principle of
optimization in biology. Any biosystem cannot function if its energy consumption is
The same is applicable to the blood circulatory system. Its main function is to transport
blood throughout the body in order to maintain the proper gaseous exchange, deliver
important substances to viscera and tissues in living body and remove decay products.
Research and development in bioengineering and medical technology, conducted during
recent decades, have led to spectacular progress in clinical medicine. These
achievements have triggered an enormous increase in the number of courses offered in
the areas of bioengineering, clinical technology and medical informatics; nowadays,
most major universities offer curricula oriented towards these fields. The majority of
participants however come from engineering backgrounds and so modules dealing with
basic biological and medical sciences have been included.
Chapter 19 - The cardiovascular system: Blood vessels (part c). After completing this unit, you should be able to: Trace the pathway of blood through the pulmonary circuit, and state the importance of this special circulation; describe the general functions of the systemic circuit; name and give the location of the major arteries and veins in the systemic circulation;...
In general, the health status at old age has an important individual and social relevance. The
vulnerability is increasing by physiological and morphological changes in the organism and
central nervous system during the ageing process. The indicators of physiological health are
based on prevalence of disabilities and causes of death. In Germany the main causes of death
are circulatory diseases, neoplasms, diseases of respiratory system and diseases of digestive
system (Statistisches Bundesamt 2007a; Nolte, Shkolinikov & McKee 2000).
There are at least three well-defined signalling cascades
engaged directly in the physiological regulation of cardiac
circulatory function: theb1-adrenoceptors that control the
cardiac contractile apparatus,the renin-angiotensin-aldo-sterone system involved in regulating bloodpressure and the
natriuretic peptides contributing at least to the factors
determining circulating volume.
