Overview

Provides current insights into critical abnormalities of the heart and lungs. The 3rd Edition includes chapters on microcirculation, regional distribution of blood flow, methods of increasing oxygen delivery, septic shock, environmental lung injury, and the effects of high pressure environments. Much more focused toward the critical care aspects of cardiopulmonary disorders.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the third edition of a hardbound textbook describing the pathophysiology and management principles for common cardiopulmonary disorders.
Purpose: This book provides a series of up-to-date reviews of topics relevant to the care of patients with cardiopulmonary failure. Emphasis is given to processes associated with management of difficult and controversial topics.
Audience: Students, trainees, practitioners, and researchers may benefit from this work. The contributors represent an international group of medically based authorities on cardiopulmonary disorders, particularly circulatory response to acute inflammation and cardiopulmonary failure.
Features: The content is organized into sections, beginning with pathophysiology and continuing through general treatment approaches and comments limited to specific disorders. The physiology of the pulmonary vascular bed and heart-lung interaction receive particular emphasis. Specific topics that are discussed include acute respiratory distress syndrome, community and hospital acquired pneumonia, hyperbaric medicine, smoke inhalation, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Relevant pathophysiology is reviewed first, followed by discussions of treatment modalities with emphasis on pertinent physiologic principles. Black-and-white illustrations and photographs are reproduced well. Detailed reference lists follow each chapter. References date to within two years of publication and represent seminal work. The table of contents includes chapter titles and subheadings. A detailed index with separate citations for tables and figures ends the book.
Assessment: Unfortunately, this book lacks the scope of comprehensive textbooks in this field. Its strength lies in an outstanding discussion of the pathophysiology specific to the pulmonary and systemic circulatory response to respiratory failure and inflammation. The practitioner seeking a clinical guide will be disappointed by the detail provided. For intensivists with clinical and research interests based on fundamental cardiopulmonary pathophysiology, this is a valuable tool.
