Welcome to Cardiovascular Physiology Concepts
This site is a web-based resource of cardiovascular physiology concepts that has been written for students, teachers, and health professionals. The contents of this site can be entered by several different routes. Searches can be conducted on individual words or phrases, keywords can be used to link to specific topics, a clinical-based content outline provides an organizational structure for the content, and tutorials can be used to course through the contents.
This web site provides abbreviated content of some of the material found in the textbook by the same author and title (Klabunde, R.E., Cardiovascular Physiology Concepts), which was published in its second edition by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (2011). The printed textbook provides many more figures and tables, along with more detailed explanations of cardiovascular concepts, including details on topics not covered by this web site.
