An Introductory Guide
A basic understanding of cardiovascular physiology is essential for optimal patient care. This practical book provides a concise tutorial of all the essential aspects of cardiovascular hemodynamics and the techniques used to assess cardiovascular performance. A high-yield reference, this book is replete with figures, tracings, tables, and clinical pearls that reinforce the basic tenets of hemodynamics. From identifying key findings of the patient history and physical exam to correlating hemodynamic tracings with acute clinical presentations, this book arms the reader with the tools necessary to handle any hemodynamic-related situation.
From the book reviews:“This is a review of hemodynamics in cardiovascular medicine. … It is intended mainly for frontline cardiologists and critical care providers, including general cardiology fellows, interventional cardiology fellows, critical care fellows, general cardiologists and critical care intensivists. The board style-questions and clinical vignettes make the book useful as a supplemental source for board examination preparation. … It is an excellent book that I highly recommend for anyone interested in learning more about hemodynamics.” (Mohi Alkadri, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2013)
