This uniquely readable, compact, and concise monograph lays a foundation of knowledge of the underlying concepts of normal cardiovascular function.

Students welcome the book’s broad overview as a practical partner or alternative to a more mechanistically oriented approach or an encyclopedic physiology text. Especially clear explanations, ample illustrations, a helpful glossary of terms, tutorials, and chapter-opening learning objectives provide superb guidance for self-directed learning and help fill the gap in many of today’s abbreviated physiology blocks. A focus on well-established cardiovascular principles reflects recent, widely accepted cardiovascular research.

The supplemental CD-ROM is an interactive, dynamically linked version of the book, which is organized by normal cardiovascular function and cardiac disease. Students may begin a path of questioning with, for example, a disease condition and then pursue background information through a series of links.

Students can also link to the author’s regularly updated Web site for additional clinical information. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

This is my first book phhysiology on Amazon, and that is really a tribute to this book. Despite having gone to a reputable medical school, CV physiology was taught to me as a series of overly-detailed lectures that made it hard to construct the forest from the proverbial trees. Since then, now a resident in Internal Medicine, and having been inspired to go into the field of Critical Care, I knew that I couldn’t let this fractured knowledge-base continue for much longer.


I had come across the author’s website during med school cvphysiology. I then bought this book and read it cover-to-cover. Although paradoxical-sounding, this separates his book out from the rest of the sea of possible purchases. It is easy to make concepts understandable but so simplified that they are literally not clinically useful e.

On the other hand, probably more common, there are books which lose sight of the fact that the reader is learning, not reviewing what is already known.

CV Physiology Concepts finds the balance, and in the end, is cardiovaecular very applicable. Klabunde, thank you for your authorship of such a useful tool for med students, residents, and seasoned physicians, to better cardiovascilar the important aspects of CV physiology.

Certainly, I will be spreading the word about your book to my colleagues. I almost never write reviews, but I had to write this when I saw this book had less than 5 stars. I can’t understand how a reviewer would give this book 4 stars instead of 5 because it doesn’t have color.

Cardiovascular Physiology Concepts

I finished kindergarten a while back, so I’m sorry if color isn’t exactly on my list of priorities. Another reviewer also gives it 4 stars because he’s getting back at his professor?

In my two years of medical school this is the second best book I have read. How the Immune System works by Sompayrac. The reason Klanunde bring up the other book is because if you’ve read it, you will instantly know the kind of standard I’m holding this cardio book up against.

Cardiovascular Physiology Concepts: Richard E Klabunde PhD: : Books

I was very weak on electrophysiology, so it took me about 15 hours to get through it. You can probably do it in 5 — it’s just that I took my time because my cardio final is in a few days, and I have time to read this book physoology once, so I took very physiklogy notes while reading it.

Also, I just had one full day to devote cardoovascular normal physiology. It’s obviously normal physiology – almost no path at all. I thought the best thing about this book was the electrophysiology chapter. That chapter alone is worth buying the book for. It really breaks things down. I guess my medical school sucks when it comes to explaining concepts. I thought the tables, figures, and graphs were amazing, especially the graphs.

I’m one of those people who gets tachycardia every time I see cardoovascular graph, but for some reason I found myself getting excited when I would come across one. Let’s just say that this dude knows how to draw graphs. Also, the second half of the electrophysiology chapter is devoted to EKGs.

The funny thing is that cardioavscular tells you in the beginning that you cardiovascluar need to buy an EKG book if you want to learn how to read EKG pathology because he doesn’t cover it in depth — however, I thought he explained everything perfectly.

We had 2 hours of lecture devoted to EKGs at my school, and this guy pretty much covered everything in just a few pages. One thing that surprised me about cardio books on amazon is that for some reason, the people writing the reviews are very liberal in giving 5 stars except when it comes to this book for some reason.


For example, pathophysiology of heart disease is highly rated, yet I thought physioligy was a very crappy book. Dubin’s book wasn’t too bad, but I wouldn’t give it the kind of reviews it has on Amazon. So for the first time I found myself not trusting the reviews on Amazon and went ahead and bought this catdiovascular.

Also, the author’s website cvphysiology. I’ve spent a lot of time on it, so when I found out the guy has a book, I jumped at it. Do yourself a favor and get the book too. And stop listening to reviewers who are looking for coloring books. Currently an MS2 at a US accredited MD school, and during MS1 cardio physio it really helped– it thoroughly explains things well and has these amazing flow charts throughout the book to easily learn major concepts.

I ended up redrawing a lot of the diagrams into my notes. Xardiovascular highly recommend the related website as well; it has great animations. I have tutored for two years now and I am constantly recommending this book and the website. Now, during MS2, I am even using it for some review.

Very handy, and pretty cheap as far as books go, so I very much recommend it. Do NOT buy this book, it has a major misprint. Several of my classmates and I are missing pages and a printed klabundw. The seller carduovascular send a new book. One person found this helpful. Item arrived as described. Really enjoy reading this book.

Cardiovascuular I needed for class. I purchased this book to help me review for the cardiology section of first-year physiology course in veterinary school. Although the book focuses on physiolpgy human heart, it has great descriptions of ion-channels, vector-loop diagrams, the cardiac cycle, neurohumoral regulation, and more with review questions for each chapter to help you learn the material. My only complaint is that the images are not in the beautiful coloring seen on the front cover but are klabknde grayscale with a few red lines throw in.

Regardless, the text and figures included were immensely helpful in improving my understanding of te material. This book very clearly explains cardiology concepts.

I found this book extremely useful as an introductory text on cardiology during my first year of medical school. I would highly recommend it to other pjysiology students. I plan on keeping my copy for reference. See all 36 reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. Pathophysiology of Heart Disease: Pages with related products.
