Comparative Cardiac Imaging: A Case-based Guide
Most books currently available on cardiac imaging focus on just modality. As the number of imaging options has increased, the choice of procedure has become more complicated. This comprehensive book will guide the practitioner in choosing the most appropriate test when confronted by various cardiac symptoms and diseases and to understand the benefits and limitations of each imaging modality. It demonstrates the advantages and disadvantages of various imaging modalities such as echocardiography, computer tomography, MRI, and nuclear cardiology in the evaluation of various disease states both commonly and infrequently seen in a standard practice.
Comparative Cardiac Imaging―A Case-based Guide utilizes actual case examples to demonstrate the state of the art in comparative cardiac imaging. It offers in-depth chapter coverage of Aortic Diseases; Aortic Valvular Diseases; Mitral Valvular Diseases; Prosthetic Valves; Coronary Artery Disease; Pulmonary Artery Diseases; Congenital Heart Disease; Cardiac Tumor; Infective Disease; Cardiomypathy; and Cardiac Trauma.

Atlas of Pediatric and Neonatal ICU EEG
Atlas of Pediatric and Neonatal ICU EEG is the first and only atlas to provide a comprehensive overview of the EEG patterns encountered in critically ill neonates and children, with emphasis on their significance and implications for patient care. EEG monitoring is an essential component of neurocritical care, and the patterns seen in critically ill children and neonates are often distinctly different from those found in critically ill adults or encountered in an epilepsy monitoring unit or outpatient neurophysiology laboratory. This resource provides expert guidance in the interpretation of neonatal and pediatric critical care EEG with hundreds of examples and detailed descriptions to enhance understanding and facilitate better outcomes for EEG monitoring in children.
The chapters begin by addressing the basics of each topic before focusing on specific EEG patterns and their relevance to a particular disease state. Dedicated chapters on rhythmic and periodic patterns, status epilepticus, quantitative EEG analysis, and multimodality monitoring provide a thorough grounding in ICU EEG skills and applications. The book concludes with a series of thirteen cases illustrating common scenarios to help clinicians apply lessons learned. 140 board-style questions targeting information covered on the epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology boards is included online along with 12 videos that further amplify chapter content. Incorporating the most recent American Clinical Neurophysiology Society guidelines for critical care EEG monitoring in neonates and children, this evidence-based atlas will be a trusted reference for critical care clinicians, neurologists, epileptologists, and other providers who care for critically ill neonates and children.
This valuable reference features 35 cases to help primary care physicians in diagnosing and treating children with common and uncommon cardiac conditions. Cases are grouped by treating location: office, nursery, emergency department, and pediatric intensive care unit.
Following the case presentation, each chapter follows the steps of: differential diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, and discussion. Valuable pearls of information are included, as well as “Practice Points,” which is a quick refresher on the key issues presented in the case.
- Refractory Supraventricular Tachycardia and Hypotension
- Cyanosis Without a Murmur
- Enlarged Cardiac Silhouette on Chest Radiography
- A Loud Murmur in a Neonate Without Symptoms

Affecting 30 million or more people across the globe, atrial fibrillation is one of the most prevalent – and yet misapprehended – issues facing modern cardiology. Its potential causes and optimal treatment strategies are matters of some conjecture in the medical community, where ongoing research has yielded findings that can prove challenging to those not familiar with the complex physiology at the root of the condition. Recognizing these concerns, distinguished electrophysiologist Peter Spector has designed Understanding Atrial Fibrillation as a means by which to equip clinicians with the data and analytic tools needed to develop a better grasp of this arrhythmia’s full nature.
The book begins by providing a detailed explanation of atrial fibrillation’s causal mechanisms and builds its exploration from there. Working toward an up-to-date knowledge of the mapping and ablation of atrial fibrillation, its chapters assess the experimental data that has shaped current thoughts on the condition and then outline the best methods with which to interpret that rich but potentially difficult information. This revelatory new guide:
- Explores hypotheses of multiple drivers and mechanisms co-existing in individual patients
- Addresses common misperceptions and inaccurate views about atrial fibrillation
- Describes the basic physiology of atrial fibrillation’s propagation and reentry
- Explores the various mechanisms and higher-order dynamics of fibrillation
- Discusses how to intervene and alter atrial physiology to prevent fibrillation
Understanding Atrial Fibrillation is truly an invaluable resource for physicians, fellows, residents, electrophysiology lab staff, and all other practitioners involved in the diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation.
The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine Volume I & II 3rd Edition
This third edition of The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine is a welcome effort to enhance lifelong learning for cardiologists; indeed, it will be a great resource for all of those members of the healthcare team dedicated to the care of patients. ESC CardioMed, the new digital dimension with
ongoing updates, is a particularly attractive feature and much needed to provide timely updates on topics. Reflection on Will Mayoâs quote from 1928 at a time of relatively slow growth in information to guide clinical practice compared to the current rapid pace of new diScoveries and ongoing
analysis of clinical practice highlights the challenge for clinicians to ‘keep up’. Linking new evidence- based data to clinical practice guidelines with advanced digital technologies is a wonderful approach and will greatly enhance what happens at the bedside in clinical decision-making.

Medicine is a scholarly profession; this includes a commitment to lifelong learning which is one marker of the best in our profession. We critically analyse what we do and try to improve care for our patients with discovery, innovation, and sharing of experience. Those who maintain their scholarly
endeavours, even while busily committed to heavy clinic practice responsibilities, will find considerable satisfaction with these ESC educational efforts. My own view is that scholarly activity, broadly defined, is an antidote for burnout among physicians. I am certain this third edition of The ESC
Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine and the ESC CardioMed digital version with updates will contribute importantly to enhancing care for the patients we serve and facilitate the scholarly milieu of clinical practice.
Oxford Textbook of Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography
Advanced critical care echocardiography brings many benefits to critical care medicine. For those wishing to practice echo at a more advance level, it is necessary to master the theoretical aspects. The Oxford Textbook of Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography provides a physiological and
evidence-based reference guide to the principles and techniques of advanced echocardiography. Both transoesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography are addressed and over 300 videos, 470 figures and, 140 mcqs are included making this an ideal adjunct for courses for intensivists.
The foundations of advanced echocardiography are outlined before specific assessment methods of critical care echo are provided. In reality, most critically ill patients do not suffer only one clinical problem so a section on integrated techniques explains how to answer both common and unexpected
critical care questions. Finally the re use of echocardiography in critical care is explored. Important reference values for clinical use can be accessed easily in the appendices.

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery: A Practical Guide
Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery: A Practical Guide
Minimally invasive cardiac surgery(MICS) is an integral component of every future cardiac surgeon’s training. There continues to be a growing global demand towards less invasive surgical techniques. Both cardiologist and cardiac surgeon form “heart teams” to provide patients with novel, minimally invasive procedures, with all their benefits.
Less invasive techniques are often complex and require special knowhow and skills. This book offers an innovative approach to learning, utilizing QR code technology, which refers the reader to essential audio-visual material, which, along with the didactic text, focuses on practical aspects of minimally invasive cardiac surgery. In modern Heart Teams, and with the advent of the hybrid era, surgeons will only be able to survive if they have state-of-the-art skills in less invasive technologies, which can be incorporated in the hybrid theatre and/or trans-catheter arena. This text accompanies the surgeon along this path, and provides clinical advice and practical solutions, beyond the necessary basic knowledge. Which courses to visit, which videos to watch, which centres to join for serious training? How best to exploit public and multimedia? How to consent a patient into a MICS procedure? How to set up a MICS program or practice? In the era of value driven outcomes, and a shift towards shorter and better patient journeys, MICS is a skill that no heart surgeon can be without.
