Heart and Coronary Arteries: An Anatomical Atlas for Clinical Diagnosis, Radiological Investigation, and Surgical Treatment

The magnificent anatomic presentation in this book “The Heart and Cor­ onary Arteries” has a unique importance for surgeons. It is a fundamental contribution to the anatomy of the heart and great arteries as well, because of the analytical, detailed, and imaginative anatomic approach of the author. While surgery from time to time is influenced by the development of new physiologic principles and techniques, methods of intra- and post-operative support, and new diagnostic methodology, the excellence of its results con­ tinues to be related primarily to the precision and perfection of the opera­ tive procedure itself. The operative procedure can be precise and perfect only if it is based upon the surgeon’s profound knowledge of normal anatomy, his understanding of the alterations in this normal anatomy by the pathol­ ogy with which he is dealing, and his ability to use this anatomic informa­ tion in organizing and effecting his surgical procedure. The cardiac sur­ geon, therefore, will find great rewards from intense study of this anatomic atlas. The cardiologist, the pediatric cardiologist, the anatomist, the pathol­ ogist, and students interested in cardiac disease will benefit to almost the same degree from a careful study of this work. May 1975 JOHN W. KIRKLIN, M. D.

Key Concepts and Issues in Nursing Ethics 1st ed. 2017 Edition

Short case studies, based on real stories from the health care arena, ensure that each chapter of this book is rooted in descriptions of nursing practise that are grounded, salient narratives of nursing care. The reader is assisted to explore the ethical dimension of nursing practice: what it is and how it can be portrayed, discussed, and analysed within a variety of practice and theoretical contexts. One of the unique contributions of this book is to consider nursing not only in the context of the individual nurse – patient relationship but also as a social good that is of necessity limited, due to the ultimate limits on the nursing and health care resource. This book will help the reader consider what good nursing looks like, both within the context of limitations on resources and under conditions of scarcity.

Indeed, any discussion of ethical issues in nursing should be well grounded in a conceptualisation of nursing that nursing students and practising nursing can recognise, accept and engage with. Nursing, like medicine, social work and teaching has a clear moral aim – to do good. In the case of nursing to do good for the patient. However it is vital that in the pressurised, constrained health service of the 21st century, we help nurses explore what this might mean for nursing practice and what can reasonably be expected of the individual nurse in terms of good nursing care.
