Fetal Cardiology: A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Management
by John Simpson
This practical book describes a systematic approach to the ultrasound examination of the fetal heart based on accepted screening recommendations. The written content is enhanced by images and videos of both normal and abnormal sonographic findings. Fetal Cardiology: A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Management goes further than simply describing core screening views. It includes extended views of the fetal heart, the use of Doppler techniques and assessment of fetal cardiac function. “Variants” which can be encountered in practice are described as well as the features of the major groups of cardiac abnormalities and fetal arrhythmias. Because the authors include experienced fetal and paediatric cardiologists, the focus is not only on diagnostic features but also the approach to postnatal care and prognosis. This content is enhanced by inclusion of chapters relating to associated fetal abnormalities, the genetics of congenital heart disease and new imaging modalities such as MRI of the fetal heart. The book equips all those using ultrasound to image the fetus with a clear concise reference to meet the challenge of new guidelines and to expand their knowledge of complementary echocardiographic techniques and management. It details why prenatal recognition of congenital heart disease is being prioritised to allow for parental choice, recognition of associated abnormalities and improvement of postnatal outcome. As such, this book will be important for all professionals, whether they be a cardiologist, fetal medicine specialist, sonographer or midwife.

Interventional Cardiology and Cardiac Catheterisation: The Essential Guide, Second Edition
by John Edward Boland
Cardiology is becoming an increasingly complex field understood by only a select group of medical specialists. This publication demystifies many difficult topics in interventional cardiology and cardiac catheterisation, commencing with the basics of laboratory instrumentation and technology and progressing to a comprehensive review of both new and established cardiac interventions. Unlike other publications that are directed mainly towards clinicians, this text is specifically written to assist newcomers such as such as medical trainees, nurses, technicians, scientific staff and other allied health professionals understand the wonders of interventional cardiology, and includes extensive explanations of the techniques of angiography, and new percutaneous. The comprehensive information presented herein, written by recognised specialists in their respective fields, will no doubt prove of great benefit to clinician and non-medical specialist alike.
Electrocardiogram in Clinical Medicine
by William J. Brady
Offers a guide for a complete understanding of the disease and conditions most frequently revealed in ECGs recorded in the acute, critical, and emergency care settings Electrocardiogram in Clinical Medicine offers an authoritative guide to ECG interpretation that contains a focus and perspective from each of the three primary areas of medical care: acute care, critical care and emergency care. It can be used as a companion with the book ECGs for the Emergency Physician I & II (by Mattu and Brady) or as a stand-alone text. These three books can be described as a cumulative EGG reference for the medical provider who uses the electrocardiogram on a regular basis. Electrocardiogram in Clinical Medicine includes sections on all primary areas of ECG interpretation and application as well as sections that highlight use, devices and strategies. The medical content covers acute coronary syndromes and all related issues, other diseases of the myocardium, morphologic syndromes, toxicology and paediatrics; dysrhythmias will also be covered in detail. This important resource: • Goes beyond pattern recognition in ECGs to offer a real understanding of the clinical syndromes evidenced in ECGs and implications for treatment • Covers the indications, advantages and pitfalls of the use of ECGs for diagnosis in all acute care settings, from EMS to ED to Critical Care • Examines the ECG in toxic, metabolic and environmental presentations; critical information for acute care clinicians who need to be able to differentiate ODs, poisoning and other environmental causes from MI or other cardiac events • Facilitates clinical decision-making Written for practicing ER, general medicine, family practice, hospitalist and ICU physicians and medical students, Electrocardiogram in Clinical Medicine is an important book for the accurate interpretation of EGG results.
The Origins of Ventricular Arrhythmias: Using the ECG as a Key Tool for Localization
by Frank Bogun
The first volume of The Origins of Ventricular Arrhythmias: Using the ECG as a Key Tool for Localization highlights the value of the 12-lead ECG for the localization of sites of origin or exit sites of ventricular arrhythmias. For this second volume of 30 cases, the author also emphasizes the anatomic relationship of arrhythmia origins by complementing the tracings with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and real-time echocardiographic data that will help visualize the actual location of ablation target sites. The value of appropriate imaging, in addition to the 12-lead ECG, is highlighted throughout. This book will aid in the understanding of the localizing value of the 12-lead ECG for ventricular arrhythmias, which is key for successfully targeting these arrhythmias using catheter ablation.
