ACLS. (Advanced Cardiac Life Support). REVIEW Third Edition. Editors Michael Zevitz.

ACLS. (Advanced Cardiac Life Support). REVIEW Third Edition. Editors Michael Zevitz. Assistant Professor of Medicine, Chicago Medical School, Chicago, IllinoisCongratulations! ACLS Review: Pearls of Wisdom will help you pass the Advanced Cardiac Life Support Course of the American Heart Association. This book's unique format differs from all other review and test preparation texts. Let us begin, then, with a few words on purpose, format, and use.
The primary intent of this book is to serve as a rapid review of ACLS principles and serve as a study aid to improve performance on the ACLS written and practical examinations. With this goal in mind, the text is written in rapid-fire, question/answer format. The student receives immediate gratification with a correct answer. Questions themselves often contain a "pearl" reinforced in association with the question/answer.
Additional hooks are often attached to the answer in various forms, including mnemonics, evoked visual imagery, repetition, and humor. Additional information not requested in the question may be included in the answer. The same information is often sought in several different questions. Emphasis has been placed on evoking both trivia and key facts that are easily overlooked, are quickly forgotten, and yet somehow always seem to appear on ACLS exams.

Cardiac Catheterization and Percutaneous Interventions. Edited by 1 Patrick Kay MBChB PhD

Cardiac Catheterization and Percutaneous Interventions. Edited by 1 Patrick Kay MBChB PhD"The results of coronary angioplasty in patients with single vessel disease arc sufficiently good to make the procedure acceptable for prospective randomised trials." So wrote Andreas Gruntzig in 1979, reporting the results of the first 50 patients treated with angioplasty. This paper represented the birth of one the major medical techniques of the 20* century.
Andreas Gruntzig pioneered and championed the new science of interventional cardiology. Since his time there has been a spiralling increase in technology and information. The transformation into an invasive or interventional cardiologist must account for these new technologies in a tactile and cognitive sense.
Drs Kay, Sabatc and Costa have created a book with both practical and scientific application, that will greatly assist the cardiologist. Chapters have been written by leading authors in their field and rising stars. I congratulate the editors on their execution of their assignment. At last we have a text that is truly useful to the growth of the interventional ist.

Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach. SECOND EDITION. EDITED BY David L. Hayes, md Guir.

Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach. SECOND EDITION. EDITED BY David L. Hayes, md Guir. Division of Cirdiovasculл Diseases, MayoQinic Rochester.In preparing this edition of Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach, our intention remained the same as for the previous edition, that is, to be a text that is uniformly written with sensible, matter-of-fact methods for understanding and caring for patients with permanent pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), and, to a much greater extent in this edition, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices. Once again, our intent was not to create an encyclopedic text. Instead, we want to provide practical clinical information for those involved in cardiac pacing, defibrillation and CRT. Several excellent multi-authored texts provide encyclopedic information.

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery. Second Edition. Edited by Daniel J. Goldstein, md Mehmet C.

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery. Second Edition. Edited by Daniel J. Goldstein, md Mehmet C.From the earliest clinical experiences with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) for cardiac operations, it was apparent that significant morbidity and even mortality were associated with the CPB procedure itself (/). Often, only the contact of blood to the foreign material of the extracorporeal circuit was held responsible. However, cardiopulmonary bypass implies more than just connecting the circulation of the patient to an extracorporeal circuit, resulting in the material-dependent activation of blood. With cardiopulmonary bypass, a number o f other nonphysiological events are introduced, including hemodilu-tion, hypothermia, nonpulsatile blood flow, retransfusion of shed blood, and exclusion of the metabolic function of the lung resulting in material-independent activation. Together, these events cause the massive and systemic activation of the patient's defense mechanisms, with repercussions on nearly every end-organ system. Signs of this "whole-body inflammatory reaction" can be observed in every postoperativepatient.
