Basic Physiology, Tools, and Bedside Management for the Critically Ill
a cura di Sheldon Magder, Atul MalhotraKathryn A. HibbertCharles Corey Hardine altri
editore: Springer Publishing Co Inc
This book offers a comprehensive overview of the basic physiology of the cardiac and pulmonary systems, tools for cardiopulmonary monitoring, and related issues in the management of specific conditions. The volume is divided into three main parts. The first part examines the functional basis of normal and abnormal physiology, organized into cardiac and pulmonary units and followed by a “combined” interactive component. The next section discusses cardiopulmonary monitoring tools and variables and is also divided into cardiac (e.g, echocardiography, heart rate, cardiac output), pulmonary (e.g, lung volume, pleural pressure, electrical impedance tomography), and combined tools such as radiology/MRI and tissue perfusion tests. The third section concerns the management and application of specific clinical problems such as pulmonary hypertension, cardiac shunts, cardiogenic shock, and ECMO with an emphasis on the physiological basics. Cardiopulmonary Monitoring: Basic Physiology, Tools, and Bedside Management for the Critically Ill is an essential resource for physicians, residents, fellows, medical students, and researchers in cardiology, critical care, emergency medicine, anesthesiology, and radiology.Benefits Provides an overview of normal and abnormal cardiovascular and pulmonary physiology and applies this knowledge to patient management Discusses specific clinical problems such as pulmonary hypertension, cardiac shunts, cardiogenic and septic shock, and mechanical pulmonary and cardiac support with references back to the basic physiology Highlights cardiopulmonary tests such as radiology/MRI, tissue perfusion and oxygenation, and acid-base Examines the use of cardiac (e.g, hemodynamics and echocardiography) and pulmonary (e.g, lung volume, pleural pressure) monitoring tools
The ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Care
a cura di Marco Tubaro, Pascal VranckxSusanna PriceChristiaan VrintsEric Bonnefoye altri
editore: Oxford University Press
The ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Care is the official textbook of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACVC) of the ESC.Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a major cause of premature death worldwide and a cause of loss of disability-adjusted life years. For most types of CVD early diagnosis and intervention are independent drivers of patient outcome. Clinicians must be properly trained and centres appropriately equipped in order to deal with these critically ill cardiac patients.This new updated edition of the textbook continues to comprehensively approach all the different issues relating to intensive and acute cardiovascular care and addresses all those involved in intensive and acute cardiac care, not only cardiologists but also critical care specialists, emergency physicians and healthcare professionals. The chapters cover the various acute cardiovascular diseases that need high quality intensive treatment as well as organisational issues, cooperation among professionals, and interaction with other specialities in medicine.SECTION 1 focusses on the definition, structure, organisation and function of ICCU's, ethical issues and quality of care. SECTION 2 addresses the pre-hospital and immediate in-hospital (ED) emergency cardiac care. SECTIONS 3-5 discuss patient monitoring, diagnosis and specific procedures. Acute coronary syndromes (ACS), acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), and serious arrhythmias form SECTIONS 6-8. The main other cardiovascular acute conditions are grouped in SECTION 9. Finally SECTION 10 is dedicated to the many concomitant acute non-cardiovascular conditions that contribute to the patients' case mix in ICCU.This edition includes new chapters such as low cardiac output states and cardiogenic shock, and pacemaker and ICDs: troubleshooting and chapters have been extensively revised. Purchasers of the print edition will also receive an access code to access the online version of the textbook which includes additional figures, tables, and videos to better to better illustrate diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and procedures in IACC.The third edition of the ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Care will establish a common basis of knowledge and a uniform and improved quality of care across the field.

editore: Il Mulino
Coronarie, colesterolo, elettrocardiogramma, stent: cosa indicano questi termini? Conoscere l'infarto significa avere qualche speranza in più di evitarlo o di sopravvivergli più consapevoli, e forse più sorridenti. E trattarlo con ironia significa spogliarlo del suo alone minaccioso. Dai sintomi al primo soccorso, dai fattori di rischio ai farmaci, alla prevenzione, passando per le ansie e gli interrogativi dei familiari, le prassi delle visite di controllo: un vademecum cardiologico utile anche a sostenere lo spirito di chi sa di aver corso un pericolo.

Postoperative Critical Care for Cardiac Surgical Patients
Ali Dabbagh, Fardad Esmailiane altri
editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K
Cardiac surgical procedures are among the most common and most complicated forms of surgery worldwide and the postoperative period is characterized by complex challenges. Among the factors determining ultimate clinical outcome, postoperative critical care is of major importance. This book adopts a clinical approach in explaining and analyzing the course of clinical care in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Since the postoperative clinical status is directly influenced by preoperative and intraoperative factors, the early chapters briefly examine preoperative issues and the intraoperative course of cardiac surgery, with particular attention to anesthesia and the process of cardiopulmonary bypass. Subsequent chapters primarily address the critical care of patients by means of an organ-oriented approach, which will enable the reader to use the text as a "cookbook" of cardiac intensive care. This book is intended for use in daily practice by cardiac surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists, intensivists and cardiac intensive care nurses.
