The Visible Heart®, a CD accompanying Handbook of Cardiac Anatomy, Physiology, and Devices, is designed to be a self-contained electronic textbook, developed via a collaboration between the university of Minnesota Medical School and Medtronic, Inc. It utilizes Visible Heart® technologies, a significant advancement in the modeling of the isolated heart that allows display of full-motion images captured from inside the endocardium of the functioning large mammalian heart.

With the support of LifeSource, The Visible Heart® presents images obtained from human hearts donated by generous individuals, whose final acts continue to enhance our understanding of the inner workings of the human heart and to contribute to lifesaving advances in cardiac medicine.

All images and videos on The Visible Heart® were captured in the laboratory of Dr. Iaizzo, utilizing the Visible Heart® technologies that are subject to pending US Patent Application No. 09/419,271 filed October 15, 1999 and PCT Application No. US99/24791, filed October 22, 1999 by the University of Minnesota and Medtronic, Inc.

Essentials of Human Physiology

This ebook provides an introductory explanation of the workings of the human body, with an effort to draw connections between the body systems and explain their interdependencies. A framework for the book is homeostasis and how the body maintains balance within each system. This is intended as a first introduction to physiology for a college-level course.
