Eco-colordoppler. Manuale didattico di eco-colordoppler ed ecocardiografia
Questo manuale è stato redatto allo scopo di introdurre il lettore con un approccio interdisciplinare nell’affascinante mondo delle immagini a colori. Abbiamo cercato di evitare le istruzioni passive a favore di un metodo didattico interattivo che si avvale della presentazione, alla fine di ciascun capitolo, di quesiti e problemi utili alla revisione di quanto riportato nel testo. Tale approccio semplifica l’apprendimento e la memorizzazione degli argomenti trattati, a vostro beneficio. Per lo stesso motivo, al fine di facilitare l’orientamento anatomico e l’identificazione delle strutture, abbiamo realizzato disegni esplicativi accanto alle complesse immagini eco-colorDoppler. Cercate di identificare le strutture indicate nei disegni con i numeri, prima di controllare la vostra risposta nel risvolto di copertina. L’esperienza insegna che questo è il metodo più immediato ed intuitivo di apprendimento, piuttosto che “navigare” tra i disegni e le abbreviazioni. Se prendete in considerazione l’aspetto sportivo, potreste trarre anche occasione di divertimento. L’approccio utilizzato in questo libro si basa sulla esperienza degli autori, raccolta nell’ambito di corsi didattici di istruzione all’ECD. I corsi interdisciplinari, parte integrante della Arbeitsgruppe Medizindidaktik Düsseldorf, limitati a gruppi di cinque partecipanti per tutor, hanno ottenendo grande successo e numerosi consensi (www.medidak.de). Quali docenti abbiamo raccolto l’adesione dei colleghi Franca Bergfelder, Jonathan Brück, Klemens Freitag, Ira Gabor, Arnd Giese, Fabian Girke, Maike Hüssmann, Anne Jäckel, Kai Jannusch, Kathrin Klein, Nicole Majewski, Alice e Ole Martin, Ralf Rulands, Stefan Schmidt, Thomas Schmidt, Isabelle Stetter, Christian Weigel, Daniel Weiss e Björn Wieland. Merita inoltre il nostro ringraziamento la ditta Samsung Electronics, che ha contribuito alle spese di stampa dell’Edizione tedesca e fornito alcune immagini. Ringraziamo anche la Sig.ra Ramona Sprenger ed il Sig. Jens Kellersmann che con cura meticolosa hanno svolto in silenzio il lavoro di rifinitura e fornito numerose proposte di modifica e miglioramento del creativo Layout editoriale e della veste grafica. È stato possibile riportare numerose immagini contenute nel capitolo della cardiologia grazie all’amicizia e disponibilità del Direttore della nostra clinica di Cardiologia, Broncopneumologia ed Angiologia, Sig. Univ. Prof. Dr. Malte Kelm. Ringrazio di cuore i due esperti colleghi Dr. Georg Groß e Dr. Alexis-Müller Marbach che con la loro preparazione hanno fornito preziosi ed utili suggerimenti nell’ambito gastroenterologico, nonché nell’iconografia, di facile comprensione per il lettore. Nella convinzione che la lettura di questo testo sia per voi stimolo per ulteriori approfondimenti degli argomenti trattati, vi auguro di utilizzare quanto appreso con successo nella vostra attività professionale.

Over the past decade, catheter-based treatments of an increasing variety of structural cardiac diseases have expanded dramatically. These advancements becane available through the design of new devices and the improvement of their performances, as well as increasing the innovation and progress in imaging techniques, and in particular in echocardiography, that allowed for such a surge in available percutaneous procedures. This book was conceived in response to the need to describe the use of the echocardiography and other imaging modalities in percutaneous interventional procedures. In all chapters, the readers will find the anatomy of the structure of interest, a description of the morpho-pathology as seen with different imaging modalities, the criteria for patient selection for the specific percutaneous treatment, and the step-by-step intraprocedural monitoring. The Authors hope that this book will ne a daily reference for echocardiographers, interventionists, anesthesiologists, clinical cardiologists and cardiac surgeons involved in structural heart disease intervention.

150 ECG Cases
John Hampton, Joanna Hamptone altri
editore: Elsevier Health Sciences
150 ECG Cases presents clinical problems in the shape of simple case histories together with the relevant ECG. Detailed answers concentrate on the clinical interpretation of the results and give advice on what to do. The book can be used as a standalone method of practising ECG interpretation, and even with the most difficult ECGs a beginner will be able to make an accurate description of the trace and will be guided towards the key aspects of the interpretation. The unique page size allows presentation of 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Several of the cases incorporate chest X-rays and coronary angiograms illustrating the appearances that are associated with various cardiac conditions. All the cases are graded in difficulty and are cross-referenced to the new editions of ECG Made Easy and ECG Made Practical for further information. This Fifth Edition has been re-ordered into two parts: Part 1 Everyday ECGs: The 75 ECGs in this section are examples of those commonly seen in clinical practice. There are several examples of the most important abnormalities, together with examples of common variations of normality. Part 2 More Challenging ECGs: The 75 ECGs in this section are more demanding and include ECG patterns seen less often in clinical practice. For this Fifth Edition over fifteen per cent 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
The ECG Made Easy
John Hampton, Joanna Hampton
editore: Elsevier Health Sciences
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.
The ECG Made Practical
John Hampton, David Adlam
editore: Elsevier Health Sciences
The ECG Made Practical is a clinically-orientated book, showing how the electrocardiogram can help in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with symptoms suggesting cardiovascular disease. The underlying philosophy of this Seventh Edition remains that the ECG has to be interpreted in the light of the patient's history and physical examination, thus the book is organised in chapters according to a patient's symptoms. Clinically-orientated with a quick reference list of cardiovascular conditions Builds on the basic knowledge outlined in the classic ECG Made Easy Emphasises the individuality of every ECG and uses full 12-lead ECG recordings to provide a realistic reproduction of the clinical environment. The unique page size allows presentation of 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Each chapter begins with a brief account of the relevant history and examination and ends with a short account of what might be done once the ECG has been interpreted. The ECG is a vital part of diagnosis and prolonged ambulatory ECG recording is now commonplace. This Seventh Edition includes a greater focus on ambulatory monitoring and the newer monitoring devices, while developments in pacing systems and defibrillators are described.
