Overview


This book is geared toward cardiologists, trainees, and housestaff --anyone who rotates or practices in the CCU--who must grasp the subtleties when treating patients in a cardiac care unit. It is organized  in a way to help you understand the simplified pathophysiology of the disease, the diagnosis modalities, the initial critical care management in the CCU, the clinical care in a step down unit and plan for discharge therapy. 

Dr. Herzog has developed unified pathways for the management of patients presenting with acute chest pain or its equivalent, acute heart failure, atrial fibrillation and flutter, syncope, cardiac arrest, hypertension and hyperglycemia. Algorithms and pathways for management are provided in each chapter for easy implementation in any health care system. In addition, because specialized units are frightening to the patients and their families, there is a section in each chapter on what the patient and family need to know, that encompasses a capsulated explanation of the condition and treatment management.

A companion website accompanies the text that includes fully searchable text and patient information.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Caleb Daniel Thompson, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book covers the most important cardiovascular topics in critical care medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to equip providers with a framework for managing patients in the cardiac care unit and to educate patients and family members on common disease processes encountered in the CCU.
Audience: The target audience includes members of the healthcare team (nurses, medical students, residents, fellows, attendings) as well as patients and their families.
Features: The first half of the book reviews acute coronary syndromes, heart failure, and arrhythmias. The second examines valvular, aortic, and pericardial disease before moving on to a discussion of intensive care therapy and chronic management of risk factors. Each chapter is divided into two sections. Part A, aimed at providers, incorporates pathophysiology, diagnosis, CCU management, and discharge planning. Part B reviews the same topic, but for patients and their families.
Assessment: This is an important review of the most common disease processes encountered in the cardiac care unit. A distinctive feature is the review at the end of each chapter written for the general public and intended for patients and their families.

    This book was EXTREMELY helpful for me in my CCU rotation (intern year) and by the end of the month, all of the residents had bought it! It did a great job of explaining potentially complicated problems with pictures and diagrams, as well as providing easy-to-use pathways for management. The book also has sections written in layman's terms which helped me explain what was happening to patients and families.
    I highly recommend this book for anyone who rotates through the CCU.

    This text uses a unique approach of combining medical information and patient information. Patient sections are actually very good in explaining complex stuff in layman terms. Design is excellent. Plenty of high-quality illustrations, easy to follow
