A historical overview of cardiovascular medicine and heart failure

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Judging by artifacts ranging from writings on papyrus to cave etchings and paintings from the Paleolithic Era, it is clear that the heart has always been a source of fascination, speculation, and reverence for its importance to human life. Theories and knowledge of the circulatory system evolved from the time of Aristotle and Hippocrates to Galen, Erasistratus, al-Nafis, Colombo, Harvey, and other physicians, anatomists, and professors. Even Leonardo da Vinci is recognized for his knowledge of the heart's features and function. This chapter provides a historical perspective, observations, and theories from multiple cultures about the process of cardiovascular circulation. This progression of thought and research has laid the groundwork for and is similar to the continuing developments in therapies to treat cardiovascular problems, including heart failure.
