Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas N Hanna, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is the fifth edition of a classic introductory handbook on cardiac catheterization.
Purpose: It is intended to provide a straightforward and practical explanation of catheterization techniques and procedures.
Audience: This handbook is suitable for technicians, nurses, medical students, allied health professionals, residents, and fellows..
Features: The 11 chapters start with descriptions of work flow, patient evaluation, and interpretation of hemodynamic and angiographic data to assist those not familiar with the laboratory. Given recent emphasis on quality initiatives, the book incorporates the proper steps relating to informed consent, documentation, and workplace safety. This edition includes up-to-date discussions and techniques on vascular access, anticoagulation, and electrophysiology testing and device use. The addition of a new chapter on peripheral artery disease provides more emphasis on this disease entity, including revascularization techniques. The information on management of coronary, carotid, cerebral, and renal disease remains a cornerstone of this handbook. The end of each chapter has a reference list to supplement information on the topic. Numerous full-color images of vascular anatomy, percutaneous devices, and pressure tracings are provided. This edition also includes access to an online version with searchable full text.
Assessment: This handbook represents a valuable resource for those new to the catheterization laboratory looking for a firm foundation in the fundamentals and evidence-based medicine.
