Applied Bedside Cardiovascular Physiology

Overview

This volume presents a concise but complete overview of the treatment of cardiovascular instability in the acute and ill patient. All aspects are considered, ranging from basic physiology and pathophysiology to diagnostic tools and established and novel forms of therapy. Finally, these principles are integrated into a series of clinically relevant scenarios.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This review of applied cardiovascular physiology is volume 28 in the Update in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine series.
Purpose: Provided is an overview of cardiovascular physiology allowing the critical care clinician to more effectively manage hemodynamic problems.
Audience: The critical care and cardiology trainee or practitioner may benefit from this work. The editors and authors are international authorities in the subjects. Most of this group comes from various institutions in Europe.
Features: The short chapters in this book are grouped into four parts. The book begins with a discussion of basic cardiovascular physiology emphasizing management of tissue oxygen delivery. Then, monitoring technology is reviewed. The two remaining sections discuss metabolic end-points and cardiovascular support for various hemodynamic problems. Chapters are brief and divided into easily digested sections. Black-and-white figures are of good quality. References date to within one to two years of publication and represent key works. The table of contents lists authors and chapter titles while a detailed subject index with separate citations for figures is provided.
Assessment: This book assembles an impressive collection of well written chapters pertinent to the hemodynamic management of the critically ill patient. However, repetition is a problem and inadequate discussions of molecular biology and mechanical forms of circulatory support could be expanded to appropriately complement the other material presented. Overall, this is a well presented review on cardiovascular therapy appropriate for any group managing the seriously ill patient.
