Overview

Now you have a dependable guide to the practical application of hemodynamics. This concise handbook will help both practicing and prospective clinicians better understand and interpret the hemodynamic data used to make specific diagnoses and monitor ongoing therapy.

Written from the perspective of a clinician, this convenient paperback opens with an overview of the basics of hemodynamics, then devotes chapters to specific disease states. Topics include:

• coronary artery disease
• cardiomyopathies
• valve disease
• arrhythmias
• pericardial disease

Numerous pressure tracings throughout the book reinforce the text by demonstrating what you will see in daily practice.

To extract as much useful information as possible from the hemodynamic data obtained from your patients, be sure to consult Cardiovascular Hemodynamics for the Clinician.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stan N Thornton, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: The editor has assembled a concise yet thorough review of cardiovascular hemodynamics and its application to clinical practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to help practitioners establish a solid understanding of the hemodynamic principles of cardiovascular disease, with an emphasis on the acquisition and interpretation of hemodynamic measurements in the clinical setting.
Audience: This book serves as both a primer for students of cardiovascular medicine and as a reference for seasoned clinicians. It is intended for all caregivers who are charged with monitoring and interpreting hemodynamic data in the process of caring for cardiovascular patients.
Features: The first of the book's five sections is a comprehensive review of cardiac hemodynamics, including basic physiologic principles, the process by which accurate data is obtained, and its interpretation. The next three sections review the hemodynamics encountered in specific disease states, such as valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathy, and pericardial disease. The final section addresses a variety of miscellaneous topics, such as the hemodynamic effects of intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation and cardiac pacing. An appendix contains useful hemodynamic formulas, and a series of "unknown" hemodynamic tracings is provided for self-assessment. Numerous well placed illustrations and photographs add to the utility of this book.
Assessment: A thorough understanding of hemodynamic principles and their application to the treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease is a necessity for those who care for such patients. The editor has successfully compiled an authoritative work on this subject that provides the backbone for such an understanding.
