Cardiovascular Physiology

Description

Intensive care medicine is not an evidence-based process; instead, it is pathophysiology based, where monitoring physiological abnormalities is of high importance to treat the patient. In the first half of the 20th century, there was considerable confusion among physiologists regarding the combined role of the heart and vasculature in determining flows and pressures in the cardiovascular system. At the same time, it must be recognized that our knowledge of all these subjects is in a constant state of progress.

In this regard, as the critically ill patients often present circulatory failure, understanding properties of cardiovascular physiology provides excellent examples to understand how general principles apply to comprehend hemodynamic instability states. We are particularly interested in manuscripts reporting research articles, clinical studies, or review articles on cardiovascular physiology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Venous return
  • Cardiovascular monitoring (macro-microcirculation)
  • Cardiovascular mechanics and models
  • Cardiopulmonary interaction
  • Cardiosplanchnic interaction
  • Cardiorenal interaction
  • Latest technologies for hemodynamic monitoring

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/bmri/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/bmri/physiology/carp/ according to the following timetable:
