Hypoxic Pulmonary Vasoconstriction: Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms will provide a timely and long lasting guide for investigators in the fields of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology, pulmonary vascular disease, high-altitude physiology and medicine. In addition, it provides a solid scientific foundation for subsequent applications in clinical practice. The volume is divided into eight sections: State-of-the-art findings relevant to cellular and molecular processes of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction as well as knowledge regarding etiological mechanisms and experimental therapeutics are well covered and complete the overview this volume provides. Experienced basic science investigators in the research fields of hypoxic cardiopulmonary physiology, pathophysiology and pulmonary diseases; clinicians; physician-scientists involved in pulmonary or critical care medicine; cardiology; cardiothoracic surgery; environmental medicine; and sports medicine will find Hypoxic Pulmonary Vasoconstriction: Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms a useful reference.
