Overview

The second edition of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation has been revised throughout, and continues to provide an up-to-date and concise guide to the management of common cardiac emergencies including, in particular, the management of a full cardiorespiratory arrest. As well as dealing with cardiac arrest associated with ischaemic heart disease, details are also given of the management of cardiac arrest from less common causes, including asthma, pulmonary embolism, anaphylaxis, and drug overdose. This edition also includes new recommendations for the management of peri-arrest rhythms. The chapter on paediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation; written by Dr David Zideman has been fully updated in line with the most recent paediatric guidelines following the recommendations of the European Resuscitation Council and the APLS. This book will be particularly useful to doctors and nurses working in Accident and Emergency or general medicine, and to paramedics. It will also be useful to those who may occasionally be required to attempt resuscitation; this book will lessen their anxiety and improve their effectiveness.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Cai Glushak
This book intends to provide an easily readable summary of the essential elements of an organized cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) effort. It contains 10 easily read chapters describing general cardiac arrest management, hospital response organization, arrhythmia diagnosis and treatment, physiology and pharmacology of cardiac arrest, and related subjects. "The stated purpose is to address the perceived deficiencies of individual training and hospital organization for resuscitation. The authors orient the text to the guidelines of the U.K. Resuscitation Council. The approach is distinctly British in language and medical orientation. It appears that certain drugs are used more regularly in the U.K. (e.g., digoxin, amiodarone) than in the U.S. References to medical organizational structures discuss features of hospital staffing that are characteristic of the U.K. "The stated target audience is all professional responders to cardiac arrests, from prehospital personnel to house staff, nurses, and senior accident and emergency staff. Although serving as a concise summary, this primer is at the level of nurses, medical students, and junior house officers. Experienced resuscitation professionals should have a deeper understanding of the subject matter than this book provides, commensurate with their expectations to fine tune a resuscitation according to clinical circumstances. Prehospital personnel and those lacking a firm grounding in arrhythmia recognition and pathophysiology may find it difficult to absorb this summarized information. It is not ideal for North American practitioners who are more oriented to the advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) guidelines. "Chapters are well delineatedwith helpful subcontents. A listing of key points before each chapter is a useful teaching guide especially for instructors. The index is a fairly unique adjunct for this type of book. The chapter on management of cardiac arrest provides a concise encapsulation of response to the most common arrhythmias, more distilled and perhaps more useful than the ACLS approach. The emphasis on team preparedness and equipment is useful for institutional planning. The arrhythmia and biochemistry and pharmacology chapters are too superficial to be useful. Diagrams such as the complex arterial blood gas nomogram are used to substitute, inadequately, for narrative. There are gaps and outdated discussions of drug usage (e.g., digoxin as first line for supraventricular tachycardia, whereas adenosine is only an 'alternative' and verapamil is not mentioned). Illustrations are just adequate. There are some useful algorithms and tables with good summaries. References are original but often dated (1970s and early 1980s). "The concept is excellent and necessary. Chapter sequence does not lend itself to a progressive understanding of CPR management. In an attempt to satisfy all levels, it will only be a usable primer to unsophisticated providers with some baseline understanding. Even for them, it is inadequate to review some complex concepts. It is most useful for the organizational approach to CPR. A second edition could conceivably correct most of the deficiencies.

Reviewer: Cai Glushak, MD, FACEP (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book intends to provide an easily readable summary of the essential elements of an organized cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) effort. It contains 10 easily read chapters describing general cardiac arrest management, hospital response organization, arrhythmia diagnosis and treatment, physiology and pharmacology of cardiac arrest, and related subjects.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to address the perceived deficiencies of individual training and hospital organization for resuscitation. The authors orient the text to the guidelines of the U.K. Resuscitation Council. The approach is distinctly British in language and medical orientation. It appears that certain drugs are used more regularly in the U.K. (e.g., digoxin, amiodarone) than in the U.S. References to medical organizational structures discuss features of hospital staffing that are characteristic of the U.K.
Audience: The stated target audience is all professional responders to cardiac arrests, from prehospital personnel to house staff, nurses, and senior accident and emergency staff. Although serving as a concise summary, this primer is at the level of nurses, medical students, and junior house officers. Experienced resuscitation professionals should have a deeper understanding of the subject matter than this book provides, commensurate with their expectations to fine tune a resuscitation according to clinical circumstances. Prehospital personnel and those lacking a firm grounding in arrhythmia recognition and pathophysiology may find it difficult to absorb this summarized information. It is not ideal for North American practitioners who are more oriented to the advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) guidelines.
Features: Chapters are well delineated with helpful subcontents. A listing of key points before each chapter is a useful teaching guide especially for instructors. The index is a fairly unique adjunct for this type of book. The chapter on management of cardiac arrest provides a concise encapsulation of response to the most common arrhythmias, more distilled and perhaps more useful than the ACLS approach. The emphasis on team preparedness and equipment is useful for institutional planning. The arrhythmia and biochemistry and pharmacology chapters are too superficial to be useful.

Assessment: The concept is excellent and necessary. Chapter sequence does not lend itself to a progressive understanding of CPR management. In an attempt to satisfy all levels, it will only be a usable primer to unsophisticated providers with some baseline understanding. Even for them, it is inadequate to review some complex concepts.
