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.
