Chapter 1 Overview of the cardiovascular system. Although human heart and circulation are emphasized wherever possible, students of general mammalian cardiovascular physiology will also find it a suitable reference.

A single chapter on cardiac excitation has been split into two updated chapters on the cardiac myocyte and cardiac electrical system, the sections on caardiac and coronary mechanoreceptor reflexes and on decompensated shock have been updated, and completely new accounts of integrated cardiovascular responses to feeding, ageing, systemic hypoxia and high altitude added.


A key feature of this sixth edition is how state-of-the-art technology is applied to understanding cardiovascular function in health and disease. Chapter 9 Circulation of fluid between plasma interstitium and lymph. Aidley Limited preview – All instructor resources are now available on our Instructor Hub. The new edition includes a physjology account of major sub-types of ion channels in cardiac and vascular smooth muscle, as well as new sections on intracellular mechanisms of vasodilatation, the role of adhesion molecules in white cell migration in inflammation and mechanisms of action of metabolic physiolog.

The country you have selected will result in the following: Cardiovascular Receptors, Reflexes and Central Control.
