Therapeutic Strategies for Heart Failure

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Therapeutic Strategies for Heart Failure
Mar 282018
 

This book introduces pathophysiology and practical heart failure (HF) management at the acute, in-hospital stages during hospitalization and also in the end-stages of HF. Given its increasing incidence and prevalence, we live in a world that is essentially facing an HF pandemic.
A country with an ageing population, Japan is unique in terms of the selection of medical treatment, diagnostic techniques, team managing and other approaches.
This book sheds new light on the clinical challenges involved in reducing re-hospitalization and improving patients’ prognosis and ADL/QOL, while also reporting on the status quo in Japan. By highlighting these challenges and the methods used to address them, it will encourage experts around the globe to intensively discuss and accelerate research in this field. Including contributions by authors who have played central roles in managing HF in Japan, the book offers an indispensable guide not only for clinicians, technicians and nurses in this field, but also for general physicians, emergency physicians and all others who are involved in the management of acute and end-stage HF.

Psychological Treatment of Cardiac Patients

 Cardiovascular, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Psychological Treatment of Cardiac Patients
Mar 202018
 

 Chronic heart disease impacts more than 17 million Americans, and lifestyle and mental health problems are major contributors to the everyday burden of this disease. In this brief yet thorough primer, Matthew Burg – an expert in the psychosocial aspects of cardiovascular medicine – provides mental health practitioners with the foundational knowledge they need to understand and work with cardiac patients.

Burg describes how psychologists can help cardiac patients adjust to their conditions, for example by changing unhealthy behaviors and coping with invasive medical interventions, including surgeries and implantable devices. He also introduces readers to specific assessment and intervention methods that can be applied to a variety of comorbid psychological disorders, including depression, anxiety, sleep dysregulation, and sexual dysfunction. Special attention is given to the role that family and other social networks play in the development and treatment of heart disease. Burg also uses the palliative care model to illustrate how clinicians can provide relief to patients facing end-of-life dilemmas.

This concise primer introduces mental health practitioners to cardiovascular behavioral medicine. Matthew Burg reviews fundamental information about the etiology and medical treatment of chronic heart disease, providing a foundation from which readers can learn to assess and treat cardiac patients. In addition to surveying methods and strategies for addressing comorbid psychological disorders, Burg describes how psychologists can help clients adjust to their conditions, change unhealthy behaviors, cope with invasive medical procedures, build social support networks, and face end-of-life issues.

Artificial Hearts: The Allure and Ambivalence of a Controversial Medical Technology

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Artificial Hearts: The Allure and Ambivalence of a Controversial Medical Technology
Mar 202018
 

Artificial hearts are seductive devices. Their promissory nature as a cure for heart failure aligned neatly with the twentieth-century American medical community’s view of the body as an entity of replacement parts. In Artificial Hearts, Shelley McKellar traces the controversial history of this imperfect technology beginning in the 1950s and leading up to the present day.

McKellar profiles generations of researchers and devices as she traces the heart’s development and clinical use. She situates the events of Dr. Michael DeBakey and Dr. Denton Cooley’s professional fall-out after the first artificial heart implant case in 1969, as well as the 1982–83 Jarvik-7 heart implant case of Barney Clark, within a larger historical trajectory. She explores how some individuals―like former US Vice President Dick Cheney―affected the public profile of this technology by choosing to be implanted with artificial hearts. Finally, she explains the varied physical experiences, both negative and positive, of numerous artificial heart recipients.

McKellar argues that desirability―rather than the feasibility or practicality of artificial hearts―drove the invention of the device. Technical challenges and unsettling clinical experiences produced an ambivalence toward its continued development by many researchers, clinicians, politicians, bioethicists, and the public. But the potential and promise of the artificial heart offset this ambivalence, influencing how success was characterized and by whom. Packed with larger-than-life characters―from dedicated and ardent scientists to feuding Texas surgeons and brave patients―this book is a fascinating case study that speaks to questions of expectations, limitations, and uncertainty in a high-technology medical world.
