Most of the progress in cardiac energetics in recent years has been spurred by the pressure-volume area concept, the natural extension into energetics of earlier pioneering work delineating the time-varying elastance framework for ventricular contraction. The book draws together a broad spectrum of researchers – basic, applied and clinical – having a shared interest in the energetics of cardiac muscle and ventricle, providing an overview of the current state of the art.
