Aging Hearts and Arteries A Scientific Quest

Age is the major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Heart disease and stroke incidence rises steeply after age 65 accounting for more than 40 percent of all deaths among people age 65 to 74 and almost 60 percent at age 85 and above. People age 65 and older are much more likely than younger people to suffer a heart attack, to have a stroke, or to develop coronary heart disease and high blood pressure leading to heart failure. Cardiovascular disease is also a major cause of disability, limiting the activity and eroding the quality of life of millions of older people each year. The cost of these diseases to the Nation is in the billions of dollars.

Interventional Cardiology and Cardiac Catheterisation: The Essential Guide, Second Edition Edition 2

Cardiology is becoming an increasingly complex field understood by only a select group of medical specialists. This publication demystifies many difficult topics in interventional cardiology and cardiac catheterisation, commencing with the basics of laboratory instrumentation and technology and progressing to a comprehensive review of both new and established cardiac interventions.
Unlike other publications that are directed mainly towards clinicians, this text is specifically written to assist newcomers such as such as medical trainees, nurses, technicians, scientific staff and other allied health professionals understand the wonders of interventional cardiology, and includes extensive explanations of the techniques of angiography, and new percutaneous.
The comprehensive information presented herein, written by recognised specialists in their respective fields, will no doubt prove of great benefit to clinician and non-medical specialist alike.

Emotional Labour in Health Care : The Unmanaged Heart of Nursing (Critical Studies in Health and Society)

Do nurses still care? In today’s inflexible, fast-paced and more accountable workplace where biomedical and clinical models dominate health care practice, is there room for emotional labour? Based on original empirical research, this book delves into personal accounts of nurses’ emotion expressions and experiences as they emerge from everyday nursing practice, and illustrates how their emotional labour is adapting in response to a constantly changing work environment. The book begins by re-examining Arlie Hochschild’s sociological notion of emotional labour, and combines it with Margaret Archer’s understanding of emotion and the inner dialogue. In an exploration of the nature of emotional labour, its historical and political context, and providing original, but easily recognisable, typology, Catherine Theodosius emphasises that it is emotion – complex, messy and opaque – that drives emotional labour within health care. She suggests that rather than being marginalised, emotional labour in nursing is frequently found in places that are hidden or unrecognised. By understanding emotion itself, which is fundamentally interactive and communicative, she argues that emotional labour is intrinsically linked to personal and social identity. The suggestion is made that the nursing profession has a responsibility to include emotional labour within personal and professional development strategies to ensure the care needs of the vulnerable are met. This innovative volume will be of interest to nursing, health care and sociology students, researchers and professionals.

Cardiovascular Safety in Drug Development and Therapeutic Use: New Methodologies and Evolving Regulatory Landscapes

At a time when the field of cardiac safety is going through important changes, this unique book provides the rationale for, and cutting-edge explanations of, new regulatory landscapes that will likely govern cardiac safety assessments globally for the foreseeable future. Exposure-response modeling is already being accepted by regulatory agencies in lieu of the traditional Thorough QT/QTc Study, and the Comprehensive in vitro Proarrhythmia Assay initiative is well under way.
Developments in the field of cardiovascular safety are also described and discussed in the book. These include the search for more efficient ways to exonerate new drugs for type 2 diabetes from an unacceptable cardiovascular liability, how best to address off-target blood pressure increases induced by noncardiovascular drugs, and the continued evolution of the discipline of Cardio-oncology.

Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case Studies

Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case StudiesEchocardiography 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 contrastDescribes cases in both clinical and echocardiographic terms including very interesting cases and the new clinical techniquesFeatures beautifully reproduced, well-labeled, full color echocardiogramsIncludes accompanying DVD with real-time video clipsAppropriate 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 ECG Made Easy – 9th Edition (May 2019 Release)

For over forty years The ECG Made Easy has been regarded as the best introductory guide to the ECG, with sales of over half a million copies as well as being translated into more than a dozen languages. Hailed by the British Medical Journal as a “medical classic”, it has been a favourite of generations of medical and health care staff who require clear, basic knowledge about the ECG. This famous book encourages the reader to accept that the ECG is easy to understand and that its use is just a natural extension of taking the patient’s history and performing a physical examination. It directs users of the electrocardiogram to straightforward and accurate identification of normal and abnormal ECG patterns.

    • A practical and highly informative guide to a difficult subject.
    • Provides a full understanding of the ECG in the diagnosis and management of abnormal cardiac rhythms.
    • Emphasises the role of the full 12 lead ECG with realistic reproduction of recordings.
  • The unique page size allows presentation of 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity.
    • A new opening chapter entitled ‘The ECG made very easy’ distils the bare essentials of using an ECG in clinical practice with minimal theory and maximum practicality.
    • The second part explains the theory underpinning the recording of an ECG in order to start basic interpretation of the 12 leads.
  • The third part looks at the clinical interpretation of individual ECGs in patients with chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations and syncope as well as understanding the normal variations in ECGs recorded from healthy subjects.
