Regulation of Tissue Oxygenation, Second Edition

Regulation of Tissue Oxygenation, Second Edition

Biota Publishing. 2016

This presentation describes various aspects of the regulation of tissue oxygenation, including the roles of the circulatory system, respiratory system, and blood, the carrier of oxygen within these components of the cardiorespiratory system. The respiratory system takes oxygen from the atmosphere and transports it by diffusion from the air in the alveoli to the blood flowing through the pulmonary capillaries. The cardiovascular system then moves the oxygenated blood from the heart to the...

The Immunology of Cardiovascular Homeostasis and Pathology

The Immunology of Cardiovascular Homeostasis and Pathology

Springer. 2017

Cardiovascular immunology is a newly emerging research area, investigating the crosstalk between the cardiovascular and the immune system. This crosstalk is evident through (1) crucial immunological capacities and functions of cardiovascular cell types, including cardiomyocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, pericytes and cardiac resident macrophages, (2) the impact of aberrant immune function on the development of cardiovascular disease such as atherosclerosis, direct and indirect...

Captopril and Hypertension

Captopril and Hypertension

Springer Science & Business Media. 2013

This monograph was developed from a collection of papers that were origi nally presented at a symposium entitled "Pathogenesis of Hypertension" held at the Henry Chauncy Conference Center, Princeton. New Jersey. These manuscripts were subsequently revised, updated, and reorganized in a manner suitable for this publication. The symposium was planned to stimu late interest among investigators and clinicians alike in the potential for a new class of drugs called converting enzyme inhibitors in...
