Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case Studies

Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case StudiesEchocardiography 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 contrastDescribes cases in both clinical and echocardiographic terms including very interesting cases and the new clinical techniquesFeatures beautifully reproduced, well-labeled, full color echocardiogramsIncludes accompanying DVD with real-time video clipsAppropriate 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.

Modeling the Heart and the Circulatory System

The book comprises contributions by some of the most respected scientists in the field of mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of the human cardiocirculatory system. The contributions cover a wide range of topics, from the preprocessing of clinical data to the development of mathematical equations, their numerical solution, and both in-vivo and in-vitro validation. They discuss the flow in the systemic arterial tree and the complex electro-fluid-mechanical coupling in the human heart. Many examples of patient-specific simulations are presented. This book is addressed to all scientists interested in the mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of the human cardiocirculatory system.

The ECG Made Easy – 9th Edition (May 2019 Release)

For over forty years The ECG Made Easy has been regarded as the best introductory guide to the ECG, with sales of over half a million copies as well as being translated into more than a dozen languages. Hailed by the British Medical Journal as a “medical classic”, it has been a favourite of generations of medical and health care staff who require clear, basic knowledge about the ECG. This famous book encourages the reader to accept that the ECG is easy to understand and that its use is just a natural extension of taking the patient’s history and performing a physical examination. It directs users of the electrocardiogram to straightforward and accurate identification of normal and abnormal ECG patterns.

    • A practical and highly informative guide to a difficult subject.
    • Provides a full understanding of the ECG in the diagnosis and management of abnormal cardiac rhythms.
    • Emphasises the role of the full 12 lead ECG with realistic reproduction of recordings.
  • The unique page size allows presentation of 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity.
    • A new opening chapter entitled ‘The ECG made very easy’ distils the bare essentials of using an ECG in clinical practice with minimal theory and maximum practicality.
    • The second part explains the theory underpinning the recording of an ECG in order to start basic interpretation of the 12 leads.
  • The third part looks at the clinical interpretation of individual ECGs in patients with chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations and syncope as well as understanding the normal variations in ECGs recorded from healthy subjects.

Contributions Toward Evidence-based Psychocardiology: A Systematic Review of the Literature

Although there is extensive research on the psychosocial factors that influence the etiology, progression, and effective treatment of coronary heart disease, these findings are seldom applied in clinical situations. There are several possible reasons for this, including the questionable quality of some of the research and lack of productive dialogue between psychologists and physicians. This book aims to correct that situation. Thechapters in this volume are based on a systematic Meta analysis of the international literature by 40 German scientists who convened to evaluate the research and discarded all but the highest quality data on psychological aspects of CHD.

Heart-Sick: The Politics of Risk, Inequality, and Heart Disease

Heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States, affects people from all walks of life, yet who lives and who dies from heart disease still depends on race, class, and gender. While scientists and clinicians understand and treat heart disease more effectively than ever before, and industrialized countries have made substantial investments in research and treatment over the past six decades, patterns of inequality persist. In Heart-Sick, Janet K. Shim argues that official accounts of cardiovascular health inequalities are unconvincing and inadequate, and that clinical and public health interventions grounded in these accounts ignore many critical causes of those inequalities.
Examining the routine activities of epidemiology—grant applications, data collection, representations of research findings, and post-publication discussions of the interpretations and implications of study results—Shim shows how social differences of race, social class, and gender are upheld by the scientific community. She argues that such sites of expert knowledge routinely, yet often invisibly, make claims about how biological and cultural differences matter—claims that differ substantially from the lived experiences of individuals who themselves suffer from health problems. Based on firsthand research at epidemiologic conferences, conversations with epidemiologists, and in-depth interviews with people of color who live with heart disease, Shim explores how both scientists and lay people define “difference” and its consequences for health. Ultimately, Heart-Sick explores the deep rifts regarding the meanings and consequences of social difference for heart disease, and the changes that would be required to generate more convincing accounts of the significance of inequality for health and well-being.

Nutritional and Integrative Strategies in Cardiovascular Medicine

Despite 40 years of aggressive pharmaceutical and surgical interventions, coronary artery disease (CAD) remains the number one killer of women and men in Western civilization. When it comes to CAD, prevention is easier than cure, and if CAD does present itself, a combination of conventional and alternative methodologies can truly make a difference in people’s lives. Nutritional and Integrative Strategies in Cardiovascular Medicine provides scientific and clinical insight from leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine who explore an integrative approach to treating and curing cardiovascular diseases through conventional and non-allopathic methodologies.
