The Breathless Heart: Apneas in Heart Failure


This book systematically focuses on central sleep apneas, analyzing their relationship especially with heart failure and discussing recent research results and emerging treatment strategies based on feedback modulation. The opening chapters present historical background information on Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR), clarify terminology, and explain the mechanics and chemistry of respiration. Following a description of the physiology of respiration, the pathophysiology underlying central apneas in different disorders and particularly in heart failure is discussed. The similarities and differences of obstructive and central apneas are then considered. The book looks beyond the concept of sleep apnea to daytime CSR and periodic breathing during effort and contrasts the opposing views of CSR as a compensatory phenomenon or as detrimental to the failing heart. The diagnostic tools currently in use for the detection of CSR are thoroughly reviewed, with guidance on interpretation of findings. The book concludes by describing the various forms of treatment that are available for CSR and by explaining how to select patients for treatment.

Handbook of Complications during Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions


Percutaneous interventions may be very demanding, challenging and complicated. Even in apparently simple cases, this is true. This superb handbook is the first to focus solely on complications during percutaneous cardiovascular interventions. Handbook of Complications during Percutaneous Coronary Interventions provides both the neophyte and the experienced interventional cardiologist with guidance on how to prevent and to treat complications in the cath lab. The editors and the excellent team of contributors ensure that the reader is provided with practically-oriented advice, as well as tips and tricks, many of which are not included in the classic textbooks.

Gene Therapy for Cardiovascular Diseases & Arrhythmia (Cardiology Research and Clinical Developments)


By (author): Kamilla Kelemen

Cardiovascular disease has evolved into an epidemic health concern. During the past decades, considerable effort has been made to develop novel and safer therapeutic options. Gene therapy has offered much renewed hope and instigated the present book. For the treatment of cardiovascular disease gene therapy has risen to an interesting and important point of view of curing disease. Although most of the studies are still experimental beneath a well defined number of clinical studies, more and more studies are designed to be carried out in humans. Based on a rich compilation of scientific as well as clinical studies around the world, this book gives insights into the general principles of gene transfer as well as therapeutic strategies including stem cell therapy as an alternative approach to gene therapy.

Transradial Approach for Percutaneous Interventions


This book outlines the state of the art in transradial intervention and illustrates case-based learning for the transradial access (TR access) technique, especially in complex lesions. Offering a practical guide, it includes essential tips and tricks on how to overcome anatomical complexities, how to avoid radial complications, multiple case-based learning for very complex PCI, etc. It also discusses the advantages of the TR intervention, such as reduced vascular access site complications and immediate patient mobilization.

 

The authors, who work at respected transradial centers, share their extensive experience with TR intervention, providing a comprehensive review of current percutaneous interventions for cardiac surgeons and cardiothoracic surgical residents.

Complex Structure and Dynamics of the Heart (Springer Theses)


Features: Complex Structure and Dynamics of the Heart Springer Theses
By (author): Philip Bittihn

This award-winning thesis investigates the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmia development and termination from an entirely new perspective. By viewing the heart as a complex system, the author uses theoretical tools from nonlinear dynamics combined with numerical simulations and experiments to achieve insights into the relationship between its structure and dynamics, thereby paving the way towards innovative low-energy defibrillation strategies. The work tackles, among other things: the effect of substrate heterogeneity on the spatial-temporal dynamics of cardiac arrhythmias and ways in which weak pulsed electric fields can be used to control these dynamics in heterogeneous cardiac tissue. The long-term vision of this research is to replace the current strategy of applying painful and sometimes tissue damaging electric shock – currently the only reliable way to terminate life-threatening fibrillation – by a more subtle but equally effective intervention. The book maps out a number of promising research directions for biophysicists and medical researchers working on the origins and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology in Clinical Practice


?Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) is a highly specialized, complex and growing field of cardiology. As understanding of the evaluation of treatment of arrhythmias continues to advance, learning and understanding the principles of EP in order to provide the best possible treatments for patients can be a daunting task. The Manual of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology is a guide to the clinical diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias that meets this need. With a scientific, practical, and multi-disciplinary approach, the book establishes the foundation of the cardiac electrophysiology and provides multimedia illustrations to facilitate and enhance understanding. These illustrations will come directly from real case studies, to provide an authentic look at each principle of EP. Since the world of EP moves so fast, and arrhythmias are diagnosed and treated in real time, it is often difficult to learn EP from static texts, images and diagrams. This book is designed to be accessible enough to serve as an introduction to EP, but advanced enough to serve as a guide for experienced practitioners. EP students of all levels, including medical students, residents, fellows, mid-level providers, nurses, technologist, primary care providers, cardiologists and electrophysiologists will find value in the Manual of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.?
