This two-volume work provides a consolidation of essential concepts and developments within microvascular physiology. Each chapter introduces the scope and principles of its topic and offers more experienced investigators a critical assessment of key ideas and techniques. The approach integrates contemporary and classical thought, outlining the development of microcirculation theory from the earliest observations. The discoveries of bioengineers and mathematically oriented biologists in the 1960s are traced, and authors discuss the valuable and continuing advances that have come from electron microscopy. They also focus on the recent upsurge of interest in the cellular biology of endothelium. In reviewing these and other contributions, this work provides a comprehensive, in-depth compendium of current more

Review quote

"This volume, like the others in the Handbook, is well produced, carefully proofread, generally well illustrated, and published on high-quality paper....The chapters achieve the goal of collecting in one place an encyclopedic compilation of knowledge about almost all aspects of the microcirculation and a very extensive list of references."--The New England Journal of Medicine"Overall, these books give a fundamental insight into the area of cardiovascular physiology and highlight the interdisciplinary nature of the methods brought to bear on the investigation and analysis of the microcirculation. These books should prove to be an invaluable reference for the specialist."--Chest"This skillfully written volume on microcirculation succeeds in presenting an extensive and detailed analysis...The critical descriptions of the various subjects addressed correspond in scope and scholastic excellence to material in previous publications by the American Physiological Society....Should be read by scientists who wish to acquire further information in this rapidly developing area of physiology. Because of the inclusion of an extensive objective analysis of the state of the art of research in microcirculation, this book should also be a useful reference source for physicians in general."--Mayo Clinic Proceedingsshow more
