Engineering science is presently contributing enormously to the improvement of quality of health and patient care, and physicians, clinical engineers and paramedics are increasingly dependent on high-tech apparatus for diagnosis, therapy or research. This technical revolution has encouraged the use of fluid dynamic principles for solving flow and fluid problems within the cardiovascular system, in extracorporeal circulation and artificial organs.
Featuring a collection of expert reviews in lecture note format, Intra and Extracorporeal Cardiovascular Fluid Dynamics: General Principles in Application contains contributions from active members of international biomedical engineering organisations such as the IFMBE, the ISAO, the ESEM, the ESAO and the INFA. A comprehensive introduction for students, it also provides a state-of-the-art guide for investigators working in this fascinating and complex field.
