Heart Sounds Made Easy with CD-ROM, 2e 2nd Edition

Awarded The British Medical Association Student Textbook Award 2009, this short and accessible book comes with an interactive CD of heart sounds recorded from actual patients using the latest digital audio technology. Cardiac auscultation is one of the most difficult clinical skills to acquire and competence in this area is extremely variable. With the CD the user can listen to a recording and either eliminate or enhance the different components until they are confident that they have correctly identified the sounds in all phases of the cardiac cycle. This Second Edition uses the latest software and includes new features, such as the ability to slow the heart sounds down without altering their pitch. The layout of the CD has been improved to make it quicker to access. New questions and answers in both the book and the CD allow readers to monitor their knowledge and progress. The visual representation of the cardiac cycle also helps readers understand the origin of the heart sounds.

This CD is suitable for use in all PC/Macs which have a tray-loading CD-ROM drive. It is not compatible with slot-loading CD-ROM drives.

  • The book provides a simple guide to cardiac auscultation along with useful teaching points and summaries
  • The interactive CD recordings allow the various components of each heart sound to be eliminated and restored to aid understanding
  • Using this package of book and CD the reader can gain a full understanding of cardiac auscultation in minutes that can take years to learn in clinical practice
  • This CD is suitable for use in all PC/Macs which have a tray-loading CD-ROM drive. It is not compatible with slot-loading CD-ROM drives
  • Expanded content with additional information on the principles of cardiac auscultation in the context of the overall cardiac examination.
  • Now presented in colour with additional imaging and colour diagrams to aid interpretation.
  • The CD has been completely redesigned using the latest software.

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Contemporary Cardiology)

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) is a rapidly evolving tool for cardiovascular diagnosis, and is becoming increasingly important in guiding cardiovascular interventions. Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging presents a state-of-the-art compilation of expert contributions to the field, each examining normal and pathologic anatomy of the cardiovascular system as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging. Functional techniques such as myocardial perfusion imaging and assessment of flow velocity are emphasized, along with the exciting areas of artherosclerosis plaque imaging and targeted magnetic resonance imaging. This cutting-edge volume represents a multi-disciplinary approach to the field, with contributions from experts in cardiology, radiology, physics, engineering, physiology and biochemistry, and offers new directions in noninvasive imaging.

Contemporary and comprehensive, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a vital resource for cardiologists and radiologists striving to lead the way into the future of this important field.

Cardiovascular Disease, Volume 2: Molecular Medicine (Methods in Molecular Medicine)

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in developed countries, but is quickly becoming an epidemic in such well-populated countries as China, India, and other developing nations. Cardiovascular research is the key to the prevention, diagnosis, and management of cardiovascular disease. Vigorous and cross-disciplinary approaches are required for successful card- vascular research. As the boundries between different scientific disciplines, particularly in the life sciences, are weakening and disappearing, a successful investigator needs to be competent in many different areas, including genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, and structural biology. The newly developed field of molecular medicine is a cross-disciplinary science that seeks to comprehend disease causes and mechanisms at the molecular level, and to apply this basic research to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and disorders. This volume in the Methods in Molecular Medicine series, C- diovascular Disease, provides comprehensive coverage of both basic and the most advanced approaches to the study and characterization of cardiovascular disease. These methods will advance knowledge of the mechanisms, diagnoses, and treatments of cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular Disease is a timely volume in which the theory and pr- ciples of each method are described in the Introduction section, followed by a detailed description of the materials and equipment needed, and step-by-step protocols for successful execution of the method. A notes section provides advice for potential problems, any modifications, and alternative methods.

Congenital Heart Disease: Morphological and Functional Assessment

This book comprehensively covers the latest information about ventricular–vascular morphology and function in congenital heart disease (CHD) assessed by various innovative methodologies.

Anatomical (morphological) abnormalities in CHD are generally accompanied with abnormal loading conditions, which, in turn, cause ventricular and vascular functional impairments. The functional impairments may also exist independently of the anatomical abnormalities. These two (morphological and functional abnormalities) importantly interact to determine underlying pathophysiology and generate clinical symptoms in CHD. Therefore, detailed and precise assessment of morphology and function is essential to better understand and treat this disease. Recent advances in technology have provided useful tools for this purpose, and novel findings are accumulating. The information contained here will provide researchers and clinicians with invaluable knowledge in this field.

About the Author

Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease: A Guide to Clinical Management

This book provides a practical hands-on approach to the management of patients with diabetes and cardiovascular disease, with original and up-to-date coverage of a variety of aspects of emerging clinical importance. Practical advice is offered on diagnosis, risk stratification, management of cardiovascular risk factors and available drug therapies. Appropriate myocardial revascularization strategies are explained and the current state of knowledge is documented regarding target-led multifactorial treatment and the management of acute coronary syndromes, heart failure, and cerebrovascular disease. New algorithms for diagnosis and treatment are presented and to ensure ease of reference each chapter includes a box with practical recommendations as well as informative color illustrations and tables. The handbook will be of value for all cardiologists and diabetologists and will be especially helpful for young cardiologists, who are ever more frequently confronted by patients with diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Manual of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Ecmo in the ICU 1st Edition

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is a procedure that uses a machine to take over the work of the lungs and sometimes the heart. The system provides heart-lung bypass support using a pump to circulate blood through an artificial lung back into the bloodstream, providing enough oxygen to the patient, whilst allowing time for the lungs and heart to rest or heal during or after serious illness. ECMO is often used for babies, but can also be used for children and adults (Medline Plus). The techniques for ECMO require professionals from multidisciplinary background to be involved in the procedure. This practical manual is a comprehensive guide to ECMO. Divided into eleven sections, the book begins with an introduction to the procedure and equipment. The following sections provide step by step discussion on initiation, maintenance of support and monitoring, and techniques of ECMO for different case scenarios. The final sections present multiple choice questions for self assessment and extensive appendices. Key points Comprehensive guide to Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO)Highly relevant for intensivists, anaesthesiologists, surgeons, paediatricians and cardiologistsIncludes section of multiple choice questions for self assessmentMore than 186 full colour images and illustrations
