Abstract:

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Written by an eminent cardiovascular physiologist with a strong track record in dealing with issues related to exercise and environmental physiology, this text covers cardiovascular function from the exercise and human physiologist's viewpoint. It provides a solid foundation of knowledge of how the cardiovascular system responds and adapts to the challenges of exercise and environmental change, and analyses the practicalities of measuring cardiovascular parameters in normal human subjects.
