Echocardiography is the cornerstone of the practice of cardiology. It is used for outpatient clinics, on wards to assess patient progress and in cath labs and theatres to guide interventional procedures, device implantation and complex surgery. Yet few busy cardiologists have the time to embrace the fast-developing technology in this field and to implement in their clinical practice. Clinical echocardiography, now in a completely revised second edition, is a book that will take all the stress out of looking at an echocardiogram and assessing exactly what is occurring in the patient’s heart. This book, with its many images of almost every cardiological condition, will provide an instantaneous interpretation of the image on the screen, guiding the cardiologist through the detailed diagnostic and therapeutic steps to achieve optimum patient management and aiding the interventionist and surgeon as they carry out the necessary procedures. The book also contains up-to-date findings and summaries of academic knowledge of echocardiography, providing a useful resource for academics and researchers and suggesting ideas for further investigation.About the Author:

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Feb 2012, 2012. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - The main target of clinical and academic cardiology activities is to optimize the patient's management and ultimately their welfare. Professionals manage patients according to their own understanding of disease process; clinicians concentrate on alleviating the symptoms and echocardiographers on identifying the disease. This book helps to 'cross the barrier' and describes the common ground between physiologic disturbances and their management which should ideally form the shared basis for understanding and managing all cardiac problems.A practical review of the many uses of echocardiography in clinical practice, Clinical Echocardiography is designed to integrate and refine the investigation of cardiac disorders within the framework of the pathologic, physiologic and surgical appearances of heart disease. It has beencommon to consider echocardiographic findings separately from the more physical aspects of heart disease. However, with the development of new imaging modalities such as three- and four-dimensional echocardiography, it has become necessary to consider this imaging as a window on the heart. This book aids the cardiologist, cardiac surgeon and echocardiographer to integrate their knowledge within the overall management of cardiac disease in a clinically relevant manner. 317 pp. Englisch.
