Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case Studies


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case Studies

Echocardiography is now one of the most commonly used diagnostic imaging tools, yet many clinicians remain unaware of the range of conditions echo can reveal or how echo can be used to help plan therapy. Moreover, it can be quite challenging even for the most seasoned practitioners to spot unusual conditions.

Compiled by three echocardiographers with more than 100 years of clinical experience between them, Practical Handbook of Echocardiography uses a case-based approach to explain in detail the full spectrum of echocardiographic modalities and how to optimize their use in the clinical setting. This practical new book:

  • Covers the full gamut of echocardiographic modalities, including M-mode, 2-D,3-D and Doppler (PW, CW, color flow, tissue and strain), transesophageal (intra-operative and routine) and contrast
  • Describes cases in both clinical and echocardiographic terms including very interesting cases and the new clinical techniques
  • Features beautifully reproduced, well-labeled, full color echocardiograms
  • Includes accompanying DVD with real-time video clips

Appropriate for physician echocardiographers and all cardiologists, as well as echocardiographic technicians, Practical Handbook of Echocardiography is the ideal concise guide to using echocardiography to make definitive diagnoses and improve patient outcomes.

The Truth about Illness and Disease (Truth about (Facts on File))


Illness and disease may be caused by bacteria or viruses, or may be due to genetic or environmental factors. Increasingly, young Americans battle disease every day. With 66 percent of Americans overweight and 51 percent of American children overweight, diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes are more common than ever before.

Advances in Noninvasive Electrocardiographic Monitoring Techniques (Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Noninvasive electrocardiographic monitoring is a fundamental part of cardiology. Depending on continuous improvements and developments of new technologies, these methods are essential for diagnosis and risk stratification of patients. The rapid changes in the capabilities, technologies and diagnostic values of the different methods force us to update our knowledge continuously.
This book offers a comprehensive overview of the current state and future developments in the field of noninvasive electrocardiographic monitoring techniques. In addition, related fields such as magnetocardiography, newer signal detection and analysis techniques as well as ambulatory blood pressure monitoring are reported. The different methods are discussed with regard to methodological aspects, latest technical developments and clinical value of results. Furthermore, review articles focus on the autonomic nervous system, monitoring of ischemic heart disease, quality control and standardization of monitoring techniques.
A group of international experts in science and clinical practice have contributed to this book, which is supported by the International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiography (ISHNE). The book is addressed to clinical and academic cardiologists as well as scientists.

Cardiorespiratory and Motor Coordination


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

This volume contains the contributions to a Satellite Symposium of the XXXI In­ ternational Congress of Physiological Sciences in Espoo, Helsinki, Finland, July 15-17,1989. The general purpose of this Symposium was to bring together specialists from different fields of physiology who work on systems that are closely linked function­ ally with regard to behavioral adaptation. In a certain sense it represents a contin­ uation of two former books on the Central Interaction Between Respiratory and Cardiovascular Control Systems 1 and on Neurovegetative Control Systems: Basic 2 Function, Integration and Disorders , but explicitly includes the relationship with motor control. Since the first book appeared, much has been achieved in the field of physiology of respiratory, cardiovascular, and somatomotor control. It is not intended that this book compete with other publications from more specialized meetings which deal with the most recent findings in a particular field of research, and rightly so.

Guidelines for Cardia Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention Programs-5th Edition With Web Resource


Guidelines for Cardiac Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention Programs, Fifth Edition With Web Resource, covers the entire scope of practice for cardiac rehabilitation and secondary prevention (CR/SP) programs. This text was developed by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) and parallels federal guidelines for cardiac rehabilitation programs. It contains information on promoting positive lifestyle behavior patterns, reducing risk factors for disease progression, and lessening the impact of cardiovascular disease on quality of life, morbidity, and mortality.

The text has been updated and restructured, providing the most current models for designing and updating rehabilitation programs for patients and preventing second episodes. In addition to chapter revisions, there is new content on behavior modification, risk factors, and special populations. The chapter covering program administration has been completely rewritten to include new regulations and reimbursement standards as well as additional suggestions for new models for CR/SP. The most recent Core Competencies for Cardiac Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention Professionals and the Core Components of Cardiac Rehabilitation/Secondary Prevention Programs have also been included in their entirety.

More than 50 leaders in the field of CR/SP, cardiovascular risk reduction, reimbursement, and public policy have contributed the latest tools and information, enabling cardiac rehabilitation professionals to successfully start new programs or update and enhance existing ones. Key features of the fifth edition include the following:

• A new web resource incorporates 24 questionnaires, charts, consent forms, protocols, records, checklists, and logs from the text that can be used when creating or assessing programs.

• Highlighted guidelines in each chapter cover current issues and provide hints and methods for implementing treatment programs and helping patients stay on track.

• Chapter objectives and summaries help readers quickly assess the topics covered and identify the most important points.

There is strong evidence that participation in outpatient cardiac rehabilitation and secondary prevention programs decreases mortality and recurrent morbidity after a cardiac event. Guidelines for Cardiac Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention Programs, Fifth Edition, offers procedures for providing patients with low-cost, high-quality programming, moving them toward personal responsibility for disease management and secondary prevention over a lifetime. This is the definitive resource for developing inpatient and outpatient cardiac rehabilitation programs.

Hypertension and Metabolic Cardiovascular Risk Factors (Practical Case Studies in Hypertension Management)


By (author): Arrigo F. G. Cicero

The aim of this guide is to provide clinicians with practical reference for the management of hypertensive patients with other cardiovascular risk factors, which originate from impaired metabolic functions. With the aid of carefully selected, paradigmatic case studies, the physician will find sound advice for the best approach to common but often under-recognized clinical situations, and answers to practical questions that arise when a specific condition is not directly addressed in the guidelines. Question-and-answer sections will help the reader to identify at a glance the most complex steps in the diagnostic and therapeutic process.

In a “real world” clinical setting, the hypertensive patient rarely presents with hypertension as the only cardiovascular risk factor, and is more likely to be affected by other metabolic risk factors, such as impairment of lipid metabolism, glucose homeostasis, and purine metabolism, and by overweight or obesity. These cases will serve as a basis for analyzing best practice, highlighting problems in diagnosis and treatment, and selecting the most appropriate management of patients with metabolic risk factors in everyday practice.
