Cardiology Science and Technology


By (author): Dhanjoo N. Ghista

Cardiology Science and Technology comprehensively deals with the science and biomedical engineering formulations of cardiology. As a textbook, itaddresses the teaching, research, and clinical aspects of cardiovascular medical engineering and computational cardiology.

The books consists of two sections. The first section deals with left ventricular (LV) wall stress, cardiac contractility, ventricular remodeling, active wall stress and systolic pressure generation, and vector cardiogram characteristics, with applications in cardiology. The second section covers ECG signal analysis for arrhythmias detection, LV pumping (intra-LV, aortic and coronary flow) characteristics, and coronary bypass surgery design, with applications in cardiology and cardiac surgery.

This book is like an exciting train ride through the heart and into blood flows within its chamber, the coronary tree, the aorta, and finally into coronary flow and bypass grafting. The train starts from the heart’s central station and journeys through exciting places of heart wall stresses, cardiac contractility measures to characterize heart failure, and active stress generation to develop systolic heart pressure. We learn about cardiomyopathic heart remodeling and its surgical ventricular restoration, theory of ECG and vector cardiogram with medical applications, and heart rate variability signal processing to detect cardiac arrhythmias.

In the heart chamber, we witness the amazing intricate intra-ventricular flow patterns. Then, we study pressure pulse wave propagation into the aorta, determination of pulse wave velocity and arterial elasticity as a measure of arteriosclerosis. We climb into the mountainous coronary terrain and look at the fascinating scenery of coronary flows and myocardial perfusion that governs cardiac contractility. Finally, we arrive at coronary bypass grafting and witness the new sequential anastomosis design for enhanced patency.

This fascinating journey helps us to fully appreciate cardiology from the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics viewpoint. The book represents what can be termed as computational cardiology, and hence belongs to the emerging field of computational medicine.

Reversibility of Chronic Degenerative Disease and Hypersensitivity, Vol. 3: Diagnostic Considerations of Chemical Sensitivity


By (author): William J. Rea, Kalpana Patel

Encyclopedic in scope, Reversibility of Chronic Degenerative Disease and Hypersensitivity, Volume 3: Environmental Manifestations of the Neurocardiovascular Systems draws deeply from clinical histories of thousands of patients. It focuses on clinical syndromes within the musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiovascular systems with a special focus on vascular dysfunction and heart failure treatment.

The book explores mechanisms of chemical sensitivity and chronic degenerative disease, their manifestations, diagnosis, and approaches to reverse dysfunction. It covers a wide variety of topics including environmental sensitivity due to external pollutants, environmental control for reducing total body load, pollutant damage to vascular perfusion, altered blood volume, fluctuations of oxygen extraction, effects of endocrine on the vascular system, effects of pollutants on myocardial cells, and mechanisms in vascular damage.

The book also discusses in detail a wide variety of clinical manifestations including vasculitis, cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac metabolic syndrome, myocarditis, atherosclerosis, heart failure, urticaria, and anaphylaxis. Treatment for heart failure is also discussed. The third volume of a five-volume set, the book provides an essential resource for health care providers diagnosing and treating chemical sensitivity and chronic degenerative disease.

Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case Studies


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case Studies

Echocardiography is now one of the most commonly used diagnostic imaging tools, yet many clinicians remain unaware of the range of conditions echo can reveal or how echo can be used to help plan therapy. Moreover, it can be quite challenging even for the most seasoned practitioners to spot unusual conditions.

Compiled by three echocardiographers with more than 100 years of clinical experience between them, Practical Handbook of Echocardiography uses a case-based approach to explain in detail the full spectrum of echocardiographic modalities and how to optimize their use in the clinical setting. This practical new book:

  • Covers the full gamut of echocardiographic modalities, including M-mode, 2-D,3-D and Doppler (PW, CW, color flow, tissue and strain), transesophageal (intra-operative and routine) and contrast
  • Describes cases in both clinical and echocardiographic terms including very interesting cases and the new clinical techniques
  • Features beautifully reproduced, well-labeled, full color echocardiograms
  • Includes accompanying DVD with real-time video clips

Appropriate for physician echocardiographers and all cardiologists, as well as echocardiographic technicians, Practical Handbook of Echocardiography is the ideal concise guide to using echocardiography to make definitive diagnoses and improve patient outcomes.
