Revised and updated for its Fifth Edition, Pathophysiology of Heart Disease delivers a concise, easy-to-understand introduction to cardiovascular diseases. This best-selling text is written by internationally recognized Harvard Medical School faculty and select medical students and specifically designed to meet the needs of medical students during their initial encounters with patients with heart disease. This edition has improved consistency of coverage and level of detail and enhanced illustrations.

A companion website on thePoint will include the fully searchable text and audio heart sounds, plus an image bank for faculty.

This textbook is a comprehensive introduction to diseases of the cardiovascular system. Although excellent cardiology reference books are available, their encyclopedic content can overwhelm the beginning student. Therefore, this text was created to serve as a simplified bridge between courses in basic physiology and the care of patients in clinical 
settings. It is intended to help medical students and physicians-in-training form a solid foundation of knowledge of diseases of the heart and circulation, and is designed to be read in its entirety during standard courses in cardiovascular pathophysiology. Emphasis has been placed on the basic mechanisms by which cardiac illnesses develop, in order to facilitate the later in-depth study of clinical diagnosis and therapy.
The original motivation for writing this book was the need for such a text voiced by our medical students, as well as their desire to participate in its creation and direction. Consequently, the book’s development is unusual in that it represents a close collaboration between Harvard medical students and cardiology faculty, who shared in the writing and editing of the manuscript. The goal of this pairing was to focus the subject matter on the needs of the student, while providing the expertise of our faculty members. In this updated and rewritten fifth edition of Pathophysiology of Heart Disease, the collaborative effort has continued, between a new generation of medical students and our cardiovascular faculty
