Cardiovascular engineering principles and practices with a focus on disease prevention
Aimed at advanced students taking cardiovascular, regenerative, and tissue engineering courses, Cardiovascular Engineering: A Protective Approach explores applications of protective engineering strategies and technologies to common cardiovascular disorders. A protective approach to cardiovascular engineering involves studying the naturally occurring mechanisms that protect molecules, cells, and organs from injury and dysfunction. The goal is to use this understanding to design and develop engineering-based therapeutic strategies and technologies that prevent cardiovascular injury and disease. Readers will learn the fundamental and applied aspects of cardiovascular engineering.
