Up-To-Date Coverage of Biofluid Mechanics and Applications in Medical Devices This thoroughly revised textbook shows how fluid mechanics works in the human circulatory system and offers cutting-edge applications in the development and design of medical instruments, equipment, and procedures. Applied Biofluid Mechanics, Second Edition, examines cardiovascular anatomy and physiology, hematology, blood vessel histology and function, heart valve mechanics and prosthetic valves, stents, pulsatile flow in large arteries, measurements, dimensional analysis, and more. This edition contains updated information on pulsatile flow modeling and a brand-new chapter that explains renal biofluids. The book also features online materials for both students and instructors, including a solutions manual. • Review of biofluid mechanics concepts • Cardiovascular structure and function • Pulmonary anatomy and physiology and respiration • Hematology and blood rheology • Anatomy and physiology of blood vessels • Mechanics of heart valves • Pulsatile flow in large arteries • Flow and pressure measurement • Modeling • Lumped parameter mathematical models • Renal biofluids
