We have shared a review and a free pdf download link (Google Drive) of Physiology of the Heart PDF 5th Edition.
The 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, Arnold 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.
