Designed to meet the needs of clinicians working with adults with congenital heart disease, Diagnosis and Management of Adult Congenital Heart Disease , by Drs. Michael A. Gatzoulis, Gary D. Webb, and Piers E. F. Daubeney, offers essential guidance on the anatomical issues, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment options available to practitioners today. This latest edition features completely updated content, including new information for nurses and nurse practitioners who, now more than ever, are playing an important role in the care of adults with CHD. You'll also access four new chapters, illustrated congenital defects, coverage of long-term outcomes, and much more. Drs. Gatzoulis, Webb, and Daubeney lead a team of experts ideally positioned to provide state-of-the-art global coverage of this increasingly important topic. Each disease-oriented chapter is written to a highly structured template and provides key information on incidence, genetics, morphology, presentation, investigation and imaging, and treatment and intervention. Congenital defects are illustrated with full-color line drawings and by the appropriate imaging modality (for example, EKG, x-ray, echocardiogram, MRI, CT, ). Provides coverage of long-term outcomes, including the management of pregnant patients and patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. Expert ConsultT eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, videos, and references from the book on a variety of devices.

Over the last century the ECG has been used by clinicians to make major clinical decisions with regard to electric pacing, the use of thrombolytic drugs in acute myocardial infarction and the timing of surgery. In conjunction with a chest X-ray and the echocardiogram it is a fundamental part of the initial investigation of a patient with suspected heart disease. These electrical squiggles have always been difficult for students to understand. In part the problem has been that the formatting of the ECG has only become standard in the last two decades. Some important books have not provided the full twelve-lead ECG. On occasion the interpretation of the ECG has been related to complex explanations of the shapes of the electrical signals. For the practising physician much of the interpretation is a matter of pattern recognition.
This comprehensive and authoritative text on heart disease in pregnancy - one of the leading causes of maternal death - will be of value to a wide audience of obstetricians, cardiologists, anaesthetists, midwives, and cardiac nurses. It provides consensus guidelines of great practical value in a compact and convenient format. Written by a multidisciplinary team, it covers both maternity and cardiac care. Contents range from pre-conception counselling and contraception, through practical templates for antenatal and intrapartum care, to long-term outcome for both mother and baby. It covers all causes of heart disease, both congenital and acquired. Thoroughly updated, this new edition has reorganised the consensus statements about priorities in management. In addition, each chapter now starts with a summary of 'Practical Practice Points' to aid quick revision when seeing a patient with a specific problem. A new section on heart and lung transplantation has been added since the first edition.
This book provides cardiologists with access to the wealth of imaging from the Royal Brompton Hospital and National Heart and Lung Institute in London to enable them to improve on their own skills and refine their imaging technique. The authors correlate this echocardiography experience with the pathological and surgical aspects of congenital heart defects. They include a review of the pathologic, physiologic and surgical observations of different congenital diseases to assist in understanding the various echocardiographic presentations. The book contains large numbers of echocardiographic images.
Tra le malattie congenite, le cardiopatie sono quelle piu frequentemente riscontrate, e hanno infatti un'incidenza dell'1% nulla popolazione mondiale. Grazie alle moderne terapie, i portatori di queste patologie diventano oggi adulti, ma necessitano di essere costantemente seguiti dagli specialisti e monitorati dai medici di famiglia. Questo testo, offrendo una panoramica completa delle informazioni relative ad esse relative e e al loro trattamento, si propone appunto di essere una guida facilmente consultabile e utile sia per l'esperto del settore sia per coloro che solo saltuariamente si confrontano con le problematiche legate alla cardiopatia congenita dell'adulto. Grazie alle numerose figure e tabelle, alla semplicita dell'esposizione e alla completezza dei dati riportati, il volume potra essere un utile strumento di lavoro anche per il personale paramedico e per tutti gli operatori coinvolti nella gestione di questi pazienti.
This concise pocketbook provides an easily accessible resource on pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) for medical professionals (senior and trainees), nurses and allied disciplines. PAH is not any longer an orphan disease, nor is it associated with a grave prognosis and premature death (as it used to be the case a decade or two ago). Patients with PAH should enjoy improved survival and quality of life, provided that an early -and not late- diagnosis is made combined with timely initiation of advanced therapy in specialized/designated tertiary centres. This comprehensive text incorporates PAH expertise from the UK and the rest of the world. The book outlines the key points with respect to the latest classification, pathobiology, genetics, clinical assessment of the patient with suspected PAH and the role of imaging. There are specific chapters addressing different PAH aetiologies, namely idiopathic PAH, thromboembolic PAH, PAH related to connective tissue disease, congenital heart disease (Eisenmenger complex), respiratory disease and other unusual causes. Last, but not least, the book addresses counselling, contraception and the latest therapy for the challenging area of pregnancy and PAH, which is still associated with a high maternal mortality risk. The main objective of the book is to increase awareness of PAH, promote rapid diagnostic work up and timely specialist referral so that effective therapy is made available as early as possible to all patients with suspected or known PAH. Physicians -senior or Junior, nurse or other health care professional - whether senior or junior - who may encounter patients with PAH has much to gain from this book.
