The content is appropriate for a large audience including early caregivers, emergency department and CCU nurses, students, residents, fellows, and hospitalists responsible for cardiovascular emergency situations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Omar Shams, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book represents a collaborative effort to summarize the principles of emergency cardiovascular care.
Purpose: It presents a unique overview of topics in emergency cardiovascular care by incorporating a multidisciplinary approach for healthcare providers. This approach highlights key clinical decisions along the course of managing a cardiovascular issue from initial patient contact through discharge planning.
Audience: The book is intended for students, emergency medical personnel, nurses, and physicians.
Features: Topics are partitioned into major sections including acute cardiac life support, myocardial infarction, stroke, arrhythmias, and pharmacology. Chapters also cover special situations such as hypothermia, drowning, and anaphylaxis are included. Each topic is discussed using ACC/AHA (American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association) and ACEP (American College of Emergency Physicians) guidelines. The discussions are succinct and accompanied by organized, easy-to-follow tables and algorithms. Strong points include the presentation of the full range of management points ranging from initial patient contact to end-of-life ethical considerations. The chapters on emergency ultrasonography and pharmacology are particularly useful.
Assessment: This book outlines the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and management of each topic. Updated ACC/AHA and ACEP guidelines provide the framework for the recommendations and topics are presented in organized, easy-to-follow algorithms and tables. "
