Summary Because of rapid growth in the medical device industry-which today enjoys revenues as large as those of the automobile industry-as well as in our understanding of cardiac disease processes, biomedical engineers must cope with a rising tide of highly complex information. In Handbook of Cardiac Anatomy, Physiology, and Devices, leading experts from the University of Minnesota's renowned Lillehei Heart Institute and scientists from Medtronic, Inc. have compiled a concise-yet detailed and comprehensive-reference source on the anatomic features, underlying physiologic mechanisms, and treatments for diseases of the heart. Here, active bioengineers working on cardiac devices will find the complete critical background they need to understand cardiac pacing, defibrillation, cardiac repair using stem cell therapy, robotics, less invasive cardiac surgery, biventricular pacing, cardiac bioenergetics, and more. Insightful chapters address animal models for cardiac research, cardiac mapping systems, heart valve disease, ventricular assist devices, and genomics-based tools and technology. Comprehensive and state-of-the art, the Handbook of Cardiac Anatomy, Physiology, and Devices provides novice and expert biomedical engineers alike with the authoritative information and background they need to work on tomorrow's generaton of life-saving cardiac devices
