Improve Your Grasp of Fluid Mechanics in the Human
Circulatory System_and Develop Better Medical Devices
Applied Biofluid Mechanics features a solid grasp of the role of fluid mechanics in the human circulatory system that will help in the research and design of new medical instruments, equipment, and procedures.
Filled with 100 detailed illustrations, the book examines cardiovascular anatomy and physiology, pulmonary anatomy and physiology, hematology, histology and function of blood vessels, heart valve mechanics and prosthetic heart valves, stents, pulsatile flow in large arteries, flow and pressure measurement, modeling, and dimensional analysis.
