Finally, this book would have no value were it not for our belief that the knowledge gained will aid the overwhelming desire of the cath lab physicians, nurses, techs, and fellows to help their patients through what may be a life or death procedure.
Includes discussions on structural heart disease and new developments in heart valve disease. Three separate sample examinations each address the complete range of important areas in critical care nursing and challenge readers' mastery of the essential knowledge base in the specialty. Kern demonstrating various procedures in the cath lab are linked within the chapters on Expert Consult, which will be regularly updated as new videos are created. Compatible with Kindle®, nook®, and other popular devices. These diagnostic modalities include: cardiac catheterization, positron-emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, two-dimensional echocardiography and single-photon imaging. General training in cardiology rarely offers more than the opportunity to assist a more senior operator to perform angioplasty procedures, so a textbook for the non-specialist has become essential reading. The Oxford Handbook of Cardiology provides a comprehensive but concise guide to all modern cardiological practice with an emphasis on practical clinical management in many different contexts.
