Focused extensively on the toxic effect of chemicals on the cardiovascular system, Cardiovascular Toxicology, Fourth Edition is comprised of several key sections beyond cardio- and vascular toxicity, such as principles of myocardial cell injury and key methods of assessing cardiovascular function.
New developments include:
- an expanded chapter on passive smoking, which includes the adverse effects of both first-hand smoking and secondary smoke inhalation
- a new chapter on the negative effects of environmental chemicals on the cardiovascular system
- chapters covering antibacterial agents and endotoxins that include new information on cardiovascular toxicity of antimicrobials, as well as anti-viral agents, antibacterial agents, and other agents
