Echo Made Easy

Sam Kaddoura


pagine: 304

Echocardiography (echo), the use of ultrasound to examine the heart, is a powerful and safe technique which is now widely available for cardiovascular investigation. This simple and highly praised text is a practical and clinically useful introduction to the subject. It aims to explain the echo techniques available, outlines what they are most suitable for, and most importantly puts echo into a clinical perspective. This book will be of value to all those who use or request echo, particularly doctors in training and medical students, but also physicians, surgeons, general practitioners, technicians, nurses and paramedics. This Third Edition takes full account of recent advances in echocardiography. A new chapter on performing and reporting an echo has been added. New text has been added on the role of echo in individuals with cancer and in diseases of the aorta. There are updated and expanded sections on pregnancy, the continuity equation, diastolic function, long-axis function and 3-D echo. There are also updates and more detailed sections on the use of echo in emergency situations, in cardiomyopathies and pericardial diseases, in congenital abnormalities and in cardiac resynchronization therapy. Up-to-date published international guidelines have been referenced throughout. New online content is available in the form of echo video images with accompanying self-assessment questions which will allow the reader to carry out self-assessment of knowledge and to see examples of the echos described in the text.

The ESC Handbook of Preventive Cardiology

Putting Prevention into Practice

Catriona Jennings, Ian Graham
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 240

The ESC Handbook of Preventive Cardiology is a 'how-to' manual for busy healthcare professionals. Complementing the 2012 Joint European Guidelines on cardiovascular disease prevention and in line with recommendations from the European Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation, it is an invaluable source of tools and skills to assist with the delivery of effective cardiovascular disease prevention. While acknowledging that cardiovascular disease prevention efforts must be complemented by societal and community based strategies, this handbook focuses on practical strategies that can be used in clinical settings. Concise and easily accessible, it guides readers through the patient and family pathway - from patient identification, recruitment of the patient and family, assessing lifestyle and risk factors, to managing lifestyle change, reducing risk factors, and compliance with cardio-protective drug therapies. Information on how to deliver a health promotion workshop programme and run a supervised exercise programme is also included. Previously published as Preventive Cardiology: A practical manual and now fully revised and updated and packed with checklists and diagrams, such as risk estimation charts, The ESC Handbook of Preventive Cardiology helps health workers contribute in real and practical ways to the prevention of artherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. This print edition of The ESC Handbook of Preventive Cardiology, Putting Prevention into Practice comes with access to the online version on Oxford Medicine Online, for as long as the edition is published by Oxford University Press.

The Oxford Textbook of Medicine: Cardiovascular Disorders is selected from the cardiology section of the renowned Oxford Textbook of Medicine. An authoritative resource on heart disease and beautifully illustrated in full colour, it is an essential guide to best practice in managing and preventing a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders. Chapters on arrhythmias, acute coronary syndromes and cardiac surgery have been completely revised and updated, together with new chapters on blood vessels and the endothelium, cardiac physiology, syncope and palpitations, and cardio-renal syndrome. Heart failure and heart disease in pregnancy are thoroughly treated, while imaging chapters evaluate the latest techniques and illustrate all clinical features with detailed images. In 46 finely crafted chapters with clear essentials, experts in cardiovascular disease review the essentials of diagnosis, guidelines and practice and provide a wealth of practical advice for use in clinical situations. In addition, background information on epidemiology, pathogenesis and pathophysiology encourages a fuller understanding of conditions, and more than 350 full colour images help with diagnosis.

Handbook of Psychocardiology Vol. 1/2

Don Byrne, Marlies E. Alvarenga

editore: Springer Verlag, Singapore

pagine: 1182

This handbook brings together the full weight of contemporary evidence bearing on what is now commonly termed "psycho-cardiology". It focuses on the role of psycho-social factors in the genesis and clinical management of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The book constitutes a critically reviewed compendium of current knowledge in the area, coupled with guides to evidence-based best practice in the field of psycho-cardiology. The following categories are covered: Social/demographic risk for CVD, Personality and CVD risk, Stress and CVD risk, Psychopathology (particularly affective disorders) and CVD risk, The psychological management of those with clinical CVD, Psychology in the prevention of CVD. The book integrates the evidence into a compelling argument that clinicians, researchers and those in public health will discount the role of psychological factors in regard to CVD at their own peril. And importantly for clinicians charged with the care of patients with CVD, the book poses the argument that failure to recognize the links between psychological factors and CVD may well be at the considerable peril of those patients under their care.

Hemodynamic Monitoring in the Icu

Karim Bendjelid, Raphael Giraud

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 113

This book describes the pathophysiological significance of the hemodynamic monitoring parameters available to the clinician and their role in providing reliable and reproducible information on the cardiocirculatory status of a patient in shock. It is explained how measurements of these parameters enable the intensivist to understand the patient's condition and to make more informed treatment decisions in order to optimize the hemodynamic status and improve the prognosis. Full guidance is provided on measurement of intravascular blood pressures, cardiac output, and derived variables. Methods of cardiac output determination based on the classical pulmonary thermodilution, transpulmonary thermodilution, echocardiography, and Doppler techniques are reviewed. Techniques based on calibrated and non-calibrated pulse contour analysis are discussed, with attention to their limitations. Furthermore, the dynamic indices of fluid responsiveness, their clinical applications, and issues related to their use are addressed. Care is also taken to explain the physiological concepts underlying various devices used by anesthesiologists and intensivists.

Nutrire il cuore

Leda Galiuto, Giacinto Miggiano
e altri

editore: L'Asino d'Oro

pagine: 159

Due medici e uno chef, più un cuore da nutrire. Con i cibi giusti, con le ricette capaci di onorare il gusto e proteggere la salute. Tutto in un manuale da tenere sulla tavola o in libreria. Perché i due autori, la cardioioga Leda Galiuto e il nutrizionista Giacinto Miggiano, sono riusciti a farne un testo che si può leggere secondo le esigenze, secondo le curiosità, secondo come si sta e quanto (e come) si mangia. Una guida per un cuore, per mille cuori. Troviamo la dieta ipocalorica, ma anche i suggerimenti per i migliori metodi di cottura, i danni da fumo come quelli da overdose di dolci, gli effetti dell'allenamento sul muscolo cardiaco e la difficile convivenza con il colesterolo. Heinz Beck, chef pluristellato, firma proposte che riescono a regalare un'inaspettata soddisfazione. Nel preparare il piatto, nel condividerlo e nel pensare che l'organismo dice "grazie". Un esempio di divulgazione scientifica che alterna il frutto della ricerca al consiglio culinario, la raccomandazione sulla terapia da seguire alla scelta del pesce, i corretti valori della pressione alla ricetta dei maccheroncini integrali con gamberi rossi e purea di melanzana, l'allarme per il picco glicemico ai dubbi sulle verdure "ripassate in padella".
