Essential Cardiology: Principles and Practice, 3rd Edition, blends molecular, cellular, and physiologic concepts with current clinical practice and provides up-to-date information on all major aspects of cardiovascular disease. Fully revised by an international panel of leading authorities in the field, it is an authoritative resource for cardiologists, internists, residents, and students. The book presents the clinical examination of the patient, including diagnostic testing and cutting-edge radiologic imaging; pathogenesis and treatment of various types of cardiac abnormalities; the needs of special populations, including pregnant, elderly, and renal-compromised patients; cardiovascular gene and cell therapy; and preventive cardiology. It includes new chapters on cardiovascular disease in women; diabetes and the cardiovascular system; and cancer therapy-induced cardiomyopathy. The Third Edition also focuses on the substantial advances in anti-platelet and anticoagulant therapy; new modalities of cardiac imaging; new anti-arrhythmic drugs; and a sophisticated understanding of vascular biology and atherogenesis.
We are now only twelve years from the first description of permanent cardiac pacing. This is now an accepted method of treatment throughout the world.
Author: D. Verel
The very rapid advances in technology have caused a revolution in Nursing practice in the last ten years. We are now only twelve years from the first description of permanent cardiac pacing. This is now an accepted method of treatment throughout the world. Bedside monitoring with oscilloscopes has passed from being an experimental investigation to normal ward practice. This rapid invasion has involved technicians and nursing staff in matters which until comparatively recently were regarded as the province of the Specialist Doctor. This book is intended primarily to give an introduction to the subject to nurses and technicians concerned with Intensive Care techniques. It is hoped it may also be of interest to Medical Students as an introduction to the subject and also as a review to those preparing for examinations. Sheffield, September 1972. David Verel Introduction About one third of deaths today are due to disease of the heart and circulation. This alone would justify a special study of them by nurses and doctors. They are of particular importance to nurses, however, as there is no other group of diseases where quick informed action by a nurse in an emergency, can save so many lives. In this book the functions of the heart and circulation are first described. There follows a brief account of the diseases of the heart, and finally, intensive coronary care and intensive post-operative care are dealt with in some detail.

Author: Adam D. Timmis
Essential Cardiology, Third Edition gives a concise account of one of the most rapidly moving areas of clinical medicine. It emphasizes the basic pathophysiological principles that permit logical interpretation of clinical findings and investigations, and also provides a guide to the most appropriate treatment. The third edition of this popular text improves upon the coverage given to cardiac surgery and pediatric cardiology. The classification of heart failure is also expanded to give more mention to alternative classification methods as well as many other sections illustrating the major advances in cardiology since the second edition.

This text provides the reader with a complete overview of the basic and applied knowledge of restenosis, leading to better insight and decision-making in clinical practice.
Author: Henricus J. Duckers
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Leading interventional cardiologists, including Patrick Serruys, provide the gold-standard reference on the treatment of restenosis for interventional cardiologists. Dr. Serruys, who pioneered the use of drug-eluting stents, and other pioneers in the field, cover everything from non-invasive imaging, to eluting stents, to brachytherapy through to the latest molecular biology-based treatments including antisense, stem cells and gene therapy.

Author: Cláudio Tinoco Mesquita
This book covers relevant concepts in nuclear cardiology, combining imaging techniques and clinical data to do so. Today, nuclear cardiology is a worldwide discipline connected to the broader field of cardiovascular imaging. The combination of clinical aspects (symptoms, medications, previous cardiac procedures), ancillary exams and nuclear images is key to decision-making in clinical practice. Thus, a book on this topic is essential to provide better outcomes for cardiology patients. The chapters cover a comprehensive range of topics in current cardiology practice, such as ambulatory patients, patients in emergency settings, patients after complex cardiac procedures, and patients during and after the use of cancer therapies that are potentially toxic for the heart (cardio-oncology). As such, multiple clinical scenarios are also presented: patients with suspected coronary disease, patients with heart failure of unknown origin, patients with acute chest pain in the emergency department, patients with suspected pulmonary embolism, patients with complications of the left ventricular assist device, etc. Furthermore, the book describes nuclear cardiology procedures and techniques, discusses the main clinical indications and scenarios for each procedure, presents new technological advances in the field (machine learning and artificial intelligence tools), and mentions the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable guide and videos for various medical professionals, especially cardiologists and nuclear physicians.
This very practical guide has high potential for industry support. COMPETITION: There is no single clinical text devoted to this important topic.
Author: John Spittell
Cardiologists today must have adequate basic training in vascular medicine in order to care for patients with peripheral vascular diseases. However, the topic of peripheral vascular disease has been inadequately addressed in most training programs, and particularly in the literature directed toward cardiologists. This text, the first of its kind, is intended to broaden their knowledge base and clinical skills in the recognition and management of the common peripheral vascular disorders occuring in cardiovascular practice. Peripheral Vascular Disease for Cardiologists will provide a practical, clinical framework rather than using the usual textbook format, hence fitting effectively within training programs in cardiology and internal medicine.
New to this edition you’ll find: An enhanced section on imaging including recent advances in cardiac MRI and fetal echocardiography. New techniques in genetic testing for heart disease in special populations.

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Caring for children with heart disease is extremely complex, requiring a different and often tailor-made approach compared with adults with similar cardiac problems. Built on the success of previous editions and brought to you by a stellar author team, Pediatric Cardiology: The Essential Pocket Guide provides a unique, concise and extremely practical overview of heart disease in children. From history-taking, physical examination, ECG, and chest X-ray – the basics that enable clinicians to uncover possible problems and eliminate areas of false concern – it goes on to examine the range of more complex topics in the diagnosis and treatment/management of childhood cardiovascular disease. New to this edition you’ll find: An enhanced section on imaging including recent advances in cardiac MRI and fetal echocardiography. New techniques in genetic testing for heart disease in special populations. Much more emphasis on the importance of echocardiography in understanding the pathophysiology of congenital cardiac malformations. Expanded section on cardiac conditions in the neonate, specifically on prenatal diagnosis and management, neonatal screening for congenital heart disease, and hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Expanded and updated congestive cardiac failure section, including the latest in genetic and metabolic causes of heart failure, and medical/surgical treatment options; discussion of bridging therapies; essentials of transplantation, including common drug treatment regimens, clinical recognition of treatment complications and rejection, outcomes, morbidity and survival. In addition, every chapter is fully updated with the very latest clinical guidelines and management options from the AHA, ACC and ESC. Pediatric Cardiology: The Essential Pocket Guide, 3rd edition, is quite simply a must-have guide for all members of the multidisciplinary team managing children suffering from heart disease.
