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.

Percutaneous Treatment of Left Side Cardiac Valves: A Practical Guide for the Interventional Cardiologist

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Percutaneous Treatment of Left Side Cardiac Valves: A Practical Guide for the Interventional Cardiologist
Mar 152018
 

After the success of the first two editions, this expanded and extensively revised edition provides the interventional cardiologist with detailed, state of the art information on key techniques and approaches to percutaneous treatment of left side cardiac valve disease, keeping pace with the rapid and dynamic evolution in the discipline.
Many new techniques and resources are now available, including new devices for transcatheter aortic valve implantation and new approaches to transcatheter mitral valve replacement. Numerous images will help the reader to understand the steps of each procedure and the characteristics of the different devices available. The potential complications and expected or potential morbidity from each procedure are discussed in depth, along with the best ways to manage them.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation has revolutionized the field of interventional cardiology. Initially envisaged as a palliative technique for inoperable patients, it now offe

rs high-risk patients a viable alternative to surgery. Several techniques are also available of transcatheter mitral valve repair, and initial cases of transcatheter mitral valve replacement have also been reported: the interest in these techniques is such that further significant technological advances are expected to be seen over the next few years.
This highly informative, easy to read, and carefully structured guide provides interventional cardiologists with updated knowledge on the application of transcatheter techniques to cardiac valves.
