Remarkable improvements in cardiac survival rates have made cardiovascular critical care much more common, but no less challenging for the practitioner. This important volume draws on the skills of an expert team of editors and contributors to present a timely overview of clinical practice.
The book covers the full range of the field, from pre-operative assessment and the haematological complications of cardiovascular surgery and critical care to the care of patients with:
· Heart Failure
· Adult Congenital Heart Disease
· Mitral Valve Disease
· Aortic Valve Disease
· Infective Endocarditis
The authors also address the special problems associated with the management of conditions consequent upon pregnancy, eclampsia, and the hypertensive crisis.
With high-quality illustrations and a helpful index, Cardiovascular Critical Care gives you access to information that helps you provide the best possible care to your patients.
