Biofluid Mechanics: The Human Circulation

I read the first edition of this book. It is excellent. It provides a systematic approach/ It covers fluid mechanics: steady flow, unsteady flow, viscoelastic properties of tissues, Windkessel and more sophisticated models of the circulation.

It provides clear examples and figures from the in-vitro and in-vivo data.

The section of valve physiology and pathophysiology was excellent. The discussion on prosthetic valves, grafts and other vascular scaffolds was very instructive, clearly written with illuminating figures.

The book ends with discussion of measurement techniques: pressure, flow, velocity including discussions of doppler echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging, computer fluid dynamics.

I hope the subsequent editions continue in this tradition and I look forward to seeing them.
