The rapid evergrowing knowledge in the field of neuro-humoral regulation of cardiovascular pathophysiology is changing the picture of current diagnosis and treatment of cardiac patients. The emerging conceptual revolutionary idea is that heart acts not as a pump, merely, but as a "gland", that is as a regulator of circulatory homeostasis and salt-water balance.Cardiovascular pathophysiology has to be written, indeed, on this basis: no physiology textbook is up - to - date in describing the complexity and novelty of actual knowledge. The platea of either physiologists or clinicians involved in the study of the cardiovascular system and care of heart patients will accept with favour such an approach, combining the classical heamodynamic view with the new neuro - hormonal paradigma.Table of contents Historical Background and Book Aim. - The Heart Complexity - The Intrinsic Function (Intrinsic Regulation of Heart Rate and Mechanics). - The Cardiac Natriuretic Hormone System. - Cardiac Natriuretic Hormones as Markers of Cardiovascular Disease: Methodological Aspects. - Clinical Considerations and Applications in Cardiac Diseases. - Clinical Applications in Extra-Cardiac Diseases. - Cardiac Natriuretic Hormone System as Target for Cardiovascular Therapy. - "Unconclusive" Remarks: Past, Present and Future of Natriuretic Peptides
