The presence of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) increases the risk of death from cardiovascular causes and makes the management of heart failure difficult.  The coexistence of CKD and heart failure is increasing in prevalence worldwide and requires a unique and subtle approach to patient management.

 

Managing the Kidney in Heart Failure focuses on the therapeutic management of cardio renal patients.  Common heart and kidney failure conditions are presented along with treatment scenarios aimed to reduce cardiovascular mortality and preserve kidney function. 

 

Co-authored by a Nephrologist and Cardiologist, each chapter of this concise and practical handbook offers a unified perspective to these chronic conditions.

As arrhythmias may be transient in nature and not seen during the shorter recording times of the standard ECG, ECG Holter monitoring allows the physician to make better informed decisions for the cardiac patient. The devices are worn by patients on an outpatient basis for days or weeks and can also be implanted subcutaneously. ECG Holter recordings are especially useful since they can be programmed individually for activation and specific tracing analysis. Designed for rapid study, this book contains 100 illustrative cases in ECG Holter monitoring. Each case consists of a tracing followed by a brief explanation of the findings. 100 Cases in ECG Holter is the perfect resource for busy physicians looking to optimize their skills at interpreting ECG Holter readings.

Real-Time Three-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography: A Step-by-Step Guide (Spiral-bound)

By (author): Annette Vegas, Massimiliano Meineri, Angela Jerath

Three-dimensional (3D) transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a powerful visual tool  which the novice or experienced echocardiographer, cardiologist, or cardiac surgeon can use to achieve a better understanding and assessment of normal and pathological cardiac function and anatomy. A complement to traditional 2D imaging, 3D TEE enables visualization of any cardiac structure from multiple perspectives.  For the echocardiographer, it demands a different set of skills for image acquisition and manipulation. 

Real-Time Three-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography is a practical illustrated step-by-step guide to the latest in 3D technology and image acquisition.  Each chapter systematically focuses on different cardiac structures with practical tips to image acquisition.

 

Features

  • Up-to-date
  • Synoptic presentation of essential “how-to” and relevant clinical information
  • More than 300 color figures
  • Practical fundamentals, including altered knobology, and how to acquire and manipulate image datasets
  • Systematic identification of special diagnostic issues
  • Normal and abnormal cardiac pathology
  • Supplemented by the Virtual TEE Perioperative Interactive Education (PIE) website which provides free access to online resources for teaching and learning TEE:   http://pie.med.utoronto.ca/TEE

150 ECG Problems, 4e (Paperback)

By (author): John R. Hampton DM MA DPhil FRCP FFPM FESC

This book offers 150 12-lead ECGs and rhythm strips, each with a clinical case history and question. The full ECG is reproduced and a study of it with the case history should be enough to give an answer. On the back the case is examined, with a description of the main features of the ECG along with a clinical interpretation and a "what to do" section. The cases are graded in difficulty.

For this Fourth Edition over 30 new ECGs have been included, mainly to provide clearer examples, though the book deliberately retains some technically poor records to maintain a 'real-world' perspective.

Cardiovascular Multidetector CT Angiography (Hardcover)

By (author): Subha Raman, Patricia Grodecki, Mario Garcia

Cardiovascular medicine has witnessed significant progress over the past century, incorporating the technical advances of each era to improve patient care. The introduction of the stethoscope, electrocardiography, roentgenography, angiography, invasive hemodynamics, ultrasonography, nuclear scintigraphy, and magnetic resonance have each, in turn, allowed progressively greater accuracy and precision in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

The advent of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) using 64 detector rows provides the next leap forward in cardiovascular care by delivering on the promise of high-resolution visualization of cardiovascular structure and function noninvasively.

Cardiovascular Multidetector CT Angiography demonstrates the clinical context within which this technology is useful for individual patient assessment, providing the technical information needed to perform cardiovascular CTA and focusing on the spectrum of clinical applications.

Written by acknowledged experts in the CTA arena, the book contains an abundance of 64-slice images—the highest technical resolution available—to identify disease states. Topics covered include normal cardiac anatomy, abnormal coronary arteries, coronary anomalies, artifacts, left and right ventricular function and abnormalities, valvular heart disease, pericardium, and the aorta. The book also discusses cardiac masses, cardiac veins, peripheral artery disease, and congenital heart disease.

Demonstrating the application of cardiovascular multidetector computed tomography from the perspective of patient care, the book is composed entirely of case studies—an excellent format for teaching those just beginning to work with CTA.

The book is designed for cardiologists and radiologists alike, as well as primary care physicians, medical students, and other health care professionals who have the opportunity to use this technology to improve diagnosis and treatment for their patients with cardiovascular disease.

This book covers all the major aspects associated with pathophysiological development of cardiac arrhythmias (covering enhanced or suppressed automaticity, triggered activity, or re-entry), from basic concepts through disease association, limitations of current pharmacotherapy and implant therapies and on-going trials and analysis of new biomarkers based on current knowledge of cellular interaction and signalling. The book describes novel and state-of-the-art methods for differentiating between the major types of arrhythmia, structural abnormalities and current practice guidelines and determination of risk stratification associated with sudden cardiac death. A particular focus is on arrhythmias associated with atrial fibrillation and includes details of associations with cardiac disease, current detection, analysis and imaging and future perspectives.​
