This book focuses on adaptation and control of the cardiovascular system, along with myocardial and vascular reactions that provide the optimal blood flow under physical activity. New information on the main hemodynamic values measured with the help of updated methods used in the research of heart and great vessels is de-scribed, and a number of new parameters, such as arterial impedance, are introduced. The information presented in this book is of value to research cardiologists, experts in sports medicine and physiology as well as for physicians and physiologists connected with the use of muscular activity.
