Each day, thousands of patients and their doctors make decisions about coronary angioplasty and bypass surgery. In Broken HeartsDavid S. Jones sheds light on the nature and quality of those decisions. He describes the debates over what causes heart attacks and the efforts to understand such unforeseen complications of cardiac surgery as depression, mental fog, and stroke.

Product Description:

This book aims to provide a comprehensive and clear review of the current knowledge of the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, a subject of concern to a wide range of specialists and general practitioners. Separate chapters describe: the definition, symptoms and sequelae of OSA, and the diagnostic strategies and treatment options for adults with OSA according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine; pathogenic mechanisms, by which OSA may contribute to the development and progression of cardiovascular and metabolic disorders, including inflammation, oxidative stress and thrombosis; links between OSA and obesity, alterations in glucose metabolism, metabolic syndrome and liver injury; relationships between OSA, endothelial dysfunction, autonomic dysfunction and cardiovascular disorders; and, the results of studies investigating the effect of treatment for OSA on the concomitant cardiovascular disease. Each chapter summarizes the essential information and is illustrated by tables and figures, which will aid the readers in their understanding of the complex systemic interactions involved in this disease. Reviewed by internationally recognized experts, this publication will be of benefit to clinicians and scientists in the fields of pulmonology, cardiology, endocrinology and neurology as well as to sleep specialists and general practitioners.

Product Description:

Dr. Arnold Katz's internationally acclaimed classic, Physiology of the Heart, is now in its thoroughly revised Fifth Edition, incorporating the latest molecular biology research and extensively exploring the clinical applications of these findings. In the single authored, expert voice that is this book's unique strength, Dr. Katz provides a comprehensive overview of the physiological and biophysical basis of cardiac function, beginning with structure and proceeding to biochemistry, biophysics, and pathophysiology in arrhythmias, ischemia, and heart failure. Emphasis is on the interrelationships of basic processes among the cell, cardiac muscle function, and the biophysics of contractile and electrical behavior. This edition includes new material on cell signaling and molecular biology.

Product Description:

Although it is widely recognized that there are significant variations in the circulation throughout the 24-hour day, these patterns have often been conceived as nuisance variables rather than functional differences. Responses of the circulation are examined here not as stable phenomena, but as integrated functions highly sensitive to environmental conditions, and driven by internal and external pacesetters. In this volume, cardiologists with a primary interest in hypertension or heart disease, chronobiologists, and psychologists join together for the first time to give the reader the opportunity to learn the extent and clinical significance of these changes from a chronobiological, behavioral and physiological perspective.

Product Description:

Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of Tai Chi now shows what Tai Chi masters have known for centuries: regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being. Cutting-edge research from Harvard Medical School also supports the long-standing claims that Tai Chi also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind. This research provides fascinating insight into the underlying physiological mechanisms that explain how Tai Chi actually works. 
Dr. Peter M. Wayne, a longtime Tai Chi teacher and a researcher at Harvard Medical School, developed and tested protocols similar to the simplified program he includes in this book, which is suited to people of all ages, and can be done in just a few minutes a day. This book includes: 
    The basic program, illustrated by more than 50 photographs 
    Practical tips for integrating Tai Chi into everyday activities 
    An introduction to the traditional principles of Tai Chi 
    Up-to-date summaries of the research literature on the health benefits of Tai Chi 
    How Tai Chi can enhance work productivity, creativity, and sports performance 
    And much more

Product Description:

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) influence various physiological processes including host defense, hormone biosynthesis, and cellular signaling. Increased ROS production (oxidative stress) is implicated in many diseases of the cardiovascular system, including hypertension, atherosclerosis, cardiac failure, stroke, diabetes, and kidney disease. ROS are produced throughout the cardiovascular system, in the kidney and central and peripheral nervous system.
