Here is the consummate text for anyone interested in learning how the cardiovascular system is regulated. Exercise and Circulation in Health and Disease is an expansive, broad-based reference that explores the functioning cardiovascular system from an integrative viewpoint.

This text includes both historical developments and recent findings on the diverse aspects of cardiovascular function. Exercise and Circulation in Health and Disease was inspired by the presentations of scientists from around the world at the Danish Academy of Science in Copenhagen and features the research and analysis of more than 40 internationally recognized authorities.

Exercise and Circulation in Health and Disease provides a conceptual framework for understanding cardiovascular function in health, as well as analysis of altered cardiovascular control during illness or under various physical and environmental conditions. Topics are presented from a basic science perspective with relevant implications for clinical and applied settings offered.

This valuable handbook for cardiovascular regulation reveals fundamental concepts as well as study models and techniques used to uncover regulatory mechanisms. It also serves as an encyclopedia of the functioning cardiovascular system from an integrative viewpoint and can be used as a reference guide and conceptual blueprint.

Part I introduces the subject of cardiovascular control mechanisms during exercise. In Part II, the text moves into specific implications for regional blood flow and oxygen delivery during exercise. Part III explores how external environmental conditions and internal biological factors affect cardiovascular regulation. Finally, Part IV examines cardiovascular regulation in disease.

Capturing both the complexity and order of cardiovascular function, Exercise and Circulation in Health and Disease covers the intricate mechanisms of cardiovascular regulation from an integrated point of view.
