This treatise summarizes the current understanding of the mechanisms for blood flow control to skeletal muscle under resting conditions, how perfusion is elevated to meet the increased demand for oxygen and other substrates during exercise.
by Robert Hutchison - Arnold
In the present book an attempt has been made to apply physiology to medicine in the same way as anatomy has long been applied to surgery. It is not intended to be a substitute for physiological textbooks, but merely a companion to them.
