This text explores how component behavior produces system behavior in physiological systems. Through text explanation, figures, and equations it provides the engineering student with a basic understanding of physiological principles with an emphasis on quantitative aspects. Geared to undergraduate students who are less familiar with biological concepts but who have successfully completed typical first-year engineering mathematics, including differential and integral calculus and some differential equations.
