Postoperative Critical Care for Adult Cardiac Surgical Patients, Second Edition

 Cardiovascular, Critical Care, Surgery  Comments Off on Postoperative Critical Care for Adult Cardiac Surgical Patients, Second Edition
Jun 212018
 

This text reviews the postoperative management of patients who have undergone cardiac surgical procedures, some of the most common and most complicated forms of surgery. These patients and their management are characterized by complex challenges, while among the factors determining ultimate clinical outcome, postoperative critical care is of major importance.
This new and extensively updated edition of Postoperative Critical Care for Cardiac Surgical Patients maintains the general clinical approach in explaining and analyzing the course of clinical care in patients undergoing cardiac surgery, providing the reader with a practical “cookbook” of postoperative intensive care in adult cardiac patients. It has been extensively updated to include the developments in this field during the last few years, from new chapters on postoperative management of renal, gastrointestinal and respiratory systems, postoperative management of infectious and inflammatory complications, and postoperative care of transplant patients and postoperative safety. This book is of critical importance for cardiac surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists and intensivists, and defines optimal daily practice for adult patients undergoing cardiac surgical procedures.

Pediatric Arrhythmias and EKGs for the Health Care Provider

 Cardiovascular, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Arrhythmias and EKGs for the Health Care Provider
Jun 172018
 

This time-tested publication has successfully trained numerous pediatric nurses from a leading children’s hospital. Pediatric advanced practice registered nurses and clinical nurse specialists working in acute or critical care settings, as well as physician assistants and medical residents, need to understand the principles of accurate pediatric EKG interpretation and the appropriate follow-up steps necessary for the best patient care. With a total of 100 EKGs, rhythm strips, and interpretations, this comprehensive but concise text analyzes all levels of arrhythmias to allow pediatric health care providers to interpret normal and abnormal pediatric EKGs and rhythm strips with confidence.

This user-friendly, quick reference outlines the basic rules for pediatric arrhythmias and EKG interpretations using a multitude of different EKGs and rhythm strips and basic but critical figures and tables. With the use of a systematic checklist for standard evaluation, the text walks the reader through the essential signs that health care providers must learn to recognize when examining the EKGs and rhythm strips of their pediatric patients. This book culminates in a robust selection of 50 EKGs and additional rhythm strips for practice and a self-test on the material presented in the preceding chapters. The answers can be compared with the cardiologist’s interpretations for reinforcement of understanding and application.

Pediatric Arrhythmias and EKGs for the Health Care Provider teaches readers in a quick, at-a-glance approach:

To obtain an interpretable pediatric tracing
To implement a proper measurement method
To understand both normal and abnormal EKGs
To learn the quickest and most accurate QTc method
To follow an organized format for rhythm analysis
To systematically use tables, diagrams, figures, and graphs for interpretation
To interpret with confidence even very complicated tracings
To know which tracings need a pediatric cardiologist’s attention

About the Author
Kathleen Joan Prater, CCT, became a certified cardiac technician through Cardiovascular Credentialing International in 1993 and had a career in cardiac testing that spanned 35 years. She assisted cardiologists with various cardiac researches, and taught nurses and technicians at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, at the Medical Center in Indianapolis, for 15 years. Ms. Prater instructed staff in how to obtain EKGs and rhythm strips on children and how to interpret pediatric arrhythmias. Along with Dr. Joyce Hubbard, she developed a manual to teach these procedures, which is the foundation for this book.

The fourth edition of IMayo Clinic Cardiology: Concise Textbook continues the tradition of all previous editions: a succinct yet comprehensive teaching and learning textbook rather than an overwhelming reference work. This new edition continues to bridge the gap between currently available texts: more than a bare-bones compilations of lists of facts that do not address the fundamental concepts of the practice of cardiology and not so encyclopedic a tome that it goes into the minute detail of a traditional reference work.

Organized to present a comprehensive overview of the field of cardiology in an accessible, reader-friendly format that can be covered in about 12 months, this new edition contains roughly 50% new material, the cardiac pharmacology section has been completely reworked, cardiovascular trials have been included, and the entire book has been updated to reflect current practice guidelines and recent developments. The book is peppered throughout with numerous tables and clinical pearls that aid the student, as well as the teacher, to remain focused.

Mayo Clinic Cardiology is based on the original syllabus for the Mayo Cardiovascular Review Course, one of the premiere teaching courses in cardiology in the United States. The content evolves entirely from Mayo Clinic physicians and reflects the expert cardiovascular care provided, from common conditions to those that are very rare, even more tertiary referral centers

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Mayo Clinic Cardiology: Concise Textbook edited by Dr. Joe Murphy and Dr. Margaret Lloyd has again redefined the art of boiling down overwhelming concepts in a merciful manner for practicing cardiologists. With plain dialogue complemented by diagrams and tables, residents and fellows can build a solid knowledge base in cardiovascular disease, as well as prepare for board exams. I would strongly recommend this textbook as a learning tool and reference to guide your cardiology practice.” — Carmelo Panetta, MD, HealthEast Heart Care, St Paul, MN

“I first became familiar with Mayo Clinic Cardiology when reviewing for my first recertification exam in Cardiology. One of my cardiology fellows leant me a copy of the First Edition. It was extremely easy to read, and I felt prepared for the recertification exam. I again used this textbook, Third Edition, for my second recertification exam… The Fourth Edition, much like the Third Edition, reaches an excellent balance of being comprehensive while remaining extremely readable… It is an excellent resource for anyone preparing for certification or recertification in cardiology. I would recommend a cardiology fellow devote six months to reading the textbook cover to cover. They will find it well worth the time invested. The practicing cardiologist will be able to cover the text book in a month. They will find it both an excellent review and an efficient way to learn new information. — Howard Kurz, MD, FACC, Cardiovascular Division, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO

“Congratulations to the editors and their esteemed group of authors on an excellent new edition that is a comprehensive, up to date, and state of the art textbook on the entire spectrum of cardiovascular medicine and disorders. This book could serve as essential reading material for internal medicine residents and, particularly, trainees in cardiovascular diseases, including for preparation for board exams. Additionally,
