Cardiovascular pathophysiology

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The cardiovascular system is a complex system designed to deliver oxygen to peripheral tissues. Oxygenated blood is delivered in an optimum fashion by the careful regulation of regional blood flow to each organ or tissue. This regulation of flow of blood is in turn dependent not only on the overall total blood volume but also on the local pressure differences within each organ. Pressure, flow and volume within the cardiovascular system are influenced in turn by both nervous impulses and circulating hormones.
