Physiology and Pharmacology of the heart is an ideal introduction for students and practitioners of medicine and science who have difficulty: ∗ understanding cardiac electrophysiology and pharmacology ∗ relating these to cardiac mechanics and therapy Thsi difficult subject often leaves experts baffled, so the aim of this book is to introduce these topics in a clear, concise and medically relevant way. Physiology and Pharmacology of the heart integrates the basic sciences with clinical medicine. The book is heavily illustrated to clarify the concepts, and contains a glossary of terms and a brief listing of the important drugs.

"If you are a Medical or Science undergraduate, a young Cardiology Registrar starting a Calman training post, or a research student starting a PhD or MD in Cardiovascular Physiology – Look no further than this excellent book!"

Black Bag, Medical Student′s Society of Bristol University, March 1998 issue

"I cannot praise this book highly enough. It is written in excellent concise style, and with great and admirable clarity. The pictures and diagrams are superb.....The authors should be greatly congratulated on producing the best textbook of cardiac Physiology that I have so far encountered."
Dr Allan Levi, Department of Physiology, Bristol

"suitable for students of the new curriculum. Consider this as an addition to your bookshelf."
