Cardiovascular Physiology 9th Edition PDF

Succinct but thorough, it focuses on the facts and concepts you must know to get a solid “big picture” overview of how the cardiovascular system operates in normal and abnormal situations. No other text will prove more valuable in enhancing your ability to evaluate the myriad new information you will be exposed to throughout your career, than Cardiovascular Physiology.

There is no faster or more effective way to learn how the key principles of cardiovascular function apply to common and pathological challenges than this engagingly written, time-proven guide. Medical students will find it to be an outstanding review for the USMLE® Step 1 and experienced clinicians will find it be a valuable clinical refresher.

Features: Cardiovascular Physiology 9th Edition PDF

NEW! Increased focus on cardiovascular energetics
•“Perspectives” section in each chapter that identify important, currently unresolved issues 
•Clarifies the details of physiologic mechanisms and their role in pathologic states
•Links cardiovascular physiology to diagnosis and treatment
•Summarizes key concepts at the end of each chapter
•Highlights must-know information with chapter objectives
•Reinforces learning with study questions at the end of each chapter


In this our final edition as primary authors of this text, we have continued our penchant of focusing on the big picture of how and why the cardiovascular system operates as it does. Our firm belief is that to evaluate the importance and consequences of specific details it is essential to appreciate where they fit in the big picture. The core idea is for students not to get lost in the forest for the trees. The same approach will serve practitioners well throughout their careers as they evaluate new information as it arises.

The cardiovascular system is a circular interconnection of many individual components—each with its own rules of operation that must be followed. But in the intact system, the individual components are forced to interact with each other. A change in the operation of any one component has repercussions throughout the system. Understanding such interactions is essential to developing a big picture of how the intact system behaves. Only then can one fully understand all the consequences of malfunctions in particular components and/or particular clinical interventions.

This ninth edition includes some recent, new findings as well as a newly added emphasis on cardiovascular energetics. The latter is a result of our recent realization that maximizing energy efficiency to limit the workload on the heart is an important part of the overall plan.

As always, we express sincere thanks to our families for their continual support of our efforts, and to our mentors, colleagues, and students for all they have taught us over the years. Also, these authors would like to thank each other for the uncountable but fruitful hours we have spent arguing about how the cardiovascular system operates from our own (and often very different perspectives).
