Hemodynamics is study of the mechanical and physiologic properties controlling blood pressure and flow through the body. The factors influencing hemodynamics are complex and extensive but include CO, circulating fluid volume, respiration, vascular diameter and resistance, and blood viscosity. Each of these may in turn be influenced by various physiological factors, such as diet, exercise, disease, drugs or alcohol, obesity and excess weight.
A significant majority of all cardiovascular diseases and disorders is related to systemic hemodynamic dysfunction. Hypertension and congestive heart failure are two best known systemic hemodynamic disorders. Also microcirculatory alterations have been repeatedly observed in many physiological conditions and patients with various pathologies such as cardiovascular diseases. To evaluate cardiac functions and peripheral vascular physiologic characteristics hemodynamic monitoring is done. In practice there are both invasive and noninvasive techniques that can be used to determine the hemodynamic status. Generally more severe and more persistent alterations are observed in patients with a poor outcome.
Today many scientists and clinicians are trying to better understand the mechanisms of the hemodynamic changes and to improve the hemodynamic status. So this book is written by expert researchers to address new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches under the scope of hemodynamics.
I wish to thank my family for their support and the authors of each individual chapter for their contribution in summarizing their most relevant findings. I hope that our efforts will not go down the drain.
