Overview

This second edition has been designed and written specifically with the busy clinician in mind, and will establish Pulmonary Circulation as the definitive reference in this important field. While retaining the theoretical and scientific content of the previous edition, this comprehensive update is more clinically directed. Highly structured throughout, early chapters are devoted to the structure, function, and pathophysiology of the pulmonary circulation. Diagnosis methods key to the correct evaluation of pulmonary hypertension, including echocardiography, imaging techniques and cardiac catheterisation, are covered in detail. The book then moves on to a consideration of the different disorders of the pulmonary circulation, their diagnosis and their treatment, including arterial and venous hypertension, thromboembolism and vascular tumors. Other issues tackled include the pulmonary circulation in critical care, disorders causing intrapulmonary shunt, and the pulmonary circulation in special environments such as high altitude, underwater and in the womb. This second edition also features an expanded pediatric section, and adherence to the new Evian classification of pulmonary hypertension.
