By (author): Helen Rimington, John Chambers

Echocardiography: A Practical Guide for Reporting and Interpretation is a step-by-step guide to clinical echocardiography.

This new edition has been extensively revised and includes new international guidelines, grading criteria and normal data. The book presents an up-to-date discussion of echocardiography use in both acute and critical care settings and provides increased guidance for clinical interpretation, including how echocardiography can help inform surgical decisions. In addition, the content has been extended, particularly in the consideration of valve disease and cardiomyopathies.

Providing a pragmatic approach to clinical echocardiography, the book also covers examples of conditions requiring urgent clinical advice. It contains a summary of formulae as well as supporting online images and videos.

Interventional Treatment of Advanced Ischemic Heart Disease


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Advanced ischemic heart disease is fast becoming one of the most challenging problems facing the modern cardiovascular physician and current established therapies often fail to adequately address this population of patients. As therapy of heart disease evolves, we need to address the challenging questions posed by this clinical problem. Treatment of Advanced Ischemic Heart Disease brings together the most recent advances in surgical techniques, protection of the heart and postoperative care, to aid the study and treatment of these patients who deserve the best that modern medicine can provide them.

The diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease and heart failure has now been standardized to the point that there are very well established guidelines promoted by the American Heart Association and The American College of Cardiology. This text will pick up where the guidelines leave off and address the real challenge of patients with advanced ischemic heart disease. Though therapy is clearly challenging, new advances are making effective therapy of these patients truly possible. This text embodies that notion. Finally, there is much still to learn about the basic mechanisms of the progression of heart failure due to coronary artery disease and how best to assess these therapeutic options. The text will address these with a focus on treatment so that it may be a practical reference for the practicing clinician as well as the basic or clinical researcher and student.

Basis and Treatment of Cardiac Arrhythmias (Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

This book incorporates the most up-to date information related to mechanisms and treatment of cardiac arrhythmia. Many of the topics discussed in this text reflect very recently undertaken research directions including genetics of arrhythmias, cell signalling molecules as potential therapeutic targets and trafficking to the membrane. These new approaches and implementations of anti-arrhythmic therapy derive from many decades of research as outlined in the first chapter by distinguished Professors Michael Rosen (Columbia University) and Michiel Janse (University of Amsterdam). The text covers changes in approaches to therapy over time, arrhythmias in multiple cardiac regions and over many scales, from gene to protein to cell to tissue to organ.

Integrative Cardiology: A New Therapeutic Vision


This book is a detailed guide to a new integrative approach to the prevention and treatment of various cardiac disorders and risk factors, including coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. This approach combines various strategies, including metabolic cardiology, low-dose medicine, exercise programs, stress management programs, evaluation for inherited risk factors, and various other healing modalities. Metabolic cardiology focuses on the prevention, management, and treatment of cardiovascular disease at the cellular level through biochemical interventions with nutritional supplements that can promote energy production in the heart. Low-dose medicine, on the other hand, interprets pathological phenomena as an imbalance in intercellular signaling that may be corrected through the administration of low physiological doses of messenger molecules. Therapies outside of mainstream medicine may also be deployed in integrative cardiology, for example acupuncture, herbal medicine, and homeopathy. Integrative Cardiology will be of interest to all practitioners wishing to learn about an approach that incorporates the incredible advances in medication and technology with a focus on nutrition, lifestyle, and mind–body influences.

Comprehensive Atlas of 3D Echocardiography


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Stanton K. Shernan MD

The Comprehensive Atlas of 3D Echocardiography takes full advantage of today’s innovative multimedia technology. To help the reader understand the unique dynamic nature of a comprehensive 3D echocardiographic examination, the printed pages are supplemented with a companion website; this Atlas introduces the use of anatomy specimens, videos, unique imaging windows, and novel displays obtained with cropping tools.  This approach offers a clear picture of how the diagnostic and monitoring capabilities of 3D echocardiography can benefit patients with a wide range of cardiovascular pathology, including congenital heart disease.

By showing a large number and variety of case studies, this Atlas demonstrates how 3D echocardiography can greatly enhance the diagnosis and clinical decision-making, especially when compared to two-dimensional techniques.


Whether you’re a Cardiologist, Sonographer, Anesthesiologist, Intensivist, Cardiac Surgeon, Researcher or any other Cardiovascular Medicine Professional, you’ll find this new Comprehensive Atlas of 3D Echocardiography is a must have reference book.
 

FEATURES

• Companion website includes more than 350 videos and 400 still images

• Emphasizes real-time 3D TEE technology

• Comparisons with anatomic specimens and 2D echocardiographic images provided, where helpful, to aid in the understanding of how 3D     views and measurements relate to standard 2D techniques

A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF ECHOCARDIOGRAPHIC IMAGING ENHANCED BY HUNDREDS OF ONLINE ANIMATIONS VIEWABLE ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE

EIGHTEEN CHAPTERS COVERS EVERY IMPORTANT CARDIAC DISEASE AND ABNORMALITY

Echocardiographic imaging has become essential to the proper diagnosis of every type of cardiac disease and disorder, and there is no more efficient or innovative way to learn the proper use of cardiac ultrasound in clinical practice than Practical Bedside Echocardiography Cases. This powerful combination text and online video collection delivers coverage of every major cardiac topic and abnormality.

There are eighteen chapters that include questions followed by detailed discussion that answers the question, as well as illustrations and text supplemented by animations that can be opened with a QR code reader using a smartphone or a tablet with Internet access. An index of all videos and direct links to them online are also included. Multiple variations on a topic are often included to illustrate the full spectrum of the abnormality being discussed. Bedside findings and the electrocardiogram, an integral part of the practice of echocardiography, are incorporated into the discussion whenever possible.

Numerous references are provided, with a strong emphasis on freely available full-text articles. These are identified by an open book icon indicating they are readable as PDFs. Other references point you to full-text cardiac physical diagnosis articles that will prove valuable at the bedside; some are annotated to further explain their value, and others were chosen for the comprehensive illustration of cardiac pathology as it relates to echocardiographic imaging. The book also includes references to classic echocardiography articles. Practical Bedside Echocardiography Cases will prove invaluable to medical students, cardiovascular practitioners at all levels of training, cardiac sonographers, and for users of hand-held, bedside, point-of-care ultrasound devices.
