Since 1970, when the pulmonary artery catheter was introduced into clinical medicine, the technique of hemodynamic monitoring has expanded rapidly. The use of this essential procedure now encompasses the coronary care unit, the medical intensive care unit, the surgical intensive care unit, and the operating room; and an entire spectrum of physicians require this skill, including anesthesiologists, trauma surgeons, pulmonologists, nephrologists, critical care specialists, and cardiologists. Learning the proper performance of invasive techniques is essential for providing high quality patient care. This easy-to-use guide provides every important aspect of hemodynamic monitoring, and presents it in a straightforward and organized format. The book's table of contents is evidence of its exceptional organization and completeness: / Normal Physiology / Respiration / Cardiac Output / Arrhythmias / Acute Mitral Regurgitation and the V Wave / Tricuspid Regurgitation / Acute Left Ventricular Infarction / Right Ventricular Infarction / Acute Left Ventricular Ischemia / Chronic Congestive Heart Failure / Pericardial Tamponade / Pericardial Constriction & Restrictive Cardiomyopathy / Pulmonary Embolism / Trouble / Normal Values / Techniques Used in this Book.

Social Work Theory and Practice with the Terminally Ill Lowest new price: $26.88
Lowest used price: $7.00
List price: $35.95
Author: Joan K. Parry
Brand: Brand: Haworth Social Work Practice Press

Social Work Theory and Practice with the Terminally Ill, second edition, takes a compassionate look at ways that social workers can help dying people and their families. The social workers who work most effectively with terminally ill patients and their families are the ones who best understand the multifaceted nature of the dying process and its impact on the the patient, the family, and even on the health care professionals who work with patients at the end of life. Dr. Parry--who specializes in dying and bereavement--offers astute observations on the stages of dealing with the diagnosis of a terminal illness and the impending death that patients and their families confront.

This updated second edition provides valuable new information on ways that social workers can help those with AIDS and their families, on traumatic death from any cause, and on the grieving processes of parents.

Social Work Theory and Practice with the Terminally Ill, second edition, also includes stimulating discussions on:

  • the interdisciplinary health team
  • the grieving process
  • professional burnout
  • how social workers adapt to working with dying patients
  • euthanasia and physician-assisted dying
  • living wills and patients’rights
In touching case studies, this volume illustrates the particular needs and concerns of the terminally ill and their families--impending losses, financial worries, job concerns, pain, unfinished business, and spiritual needs--and reviews successful interventions used by social workers to help patients and their families work through the dying process.

Nurturing the Premature Infant: Developmental Intervention in the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery

Nurturing the Premature Infant: Developmental Intervention in the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery Lowest new price: $20.00
Lowest used price: $3.43
List price: $74.00

Traditionally, non-medical, developmental intervention with premature infants has been a controversial topic in neonatal intensive care units (NICU). However, a small but growing band of researchers have been pushing for the acceptance of alternative interventions, such as kangaroo care and massage therapy, that do not resort to surgical or other medical practices. Edward Goldson, a pediatrician at Children's Hospital in Colorado, has assembled the top researchers in the field to contribute to this comprehensive volume that deals with non-medical intervention with premature infants. Nurturing the Premature Infant is the first to combine the innovative research in this growing area and present it in a single volume. Not only will it be indispensable to professionals in the field, but it will also be of interest to parents of premature infants.

Clinical Electrocardiography: PreTest? Self-Assessment and Review

Clinical Electrocardiography: PreTest? Self-Assessment and Review Lowest new price: $83.63
Lowest used price: $13.29
List price: $49.95
Author: Franklin H., M.D. Zimmerman

Electrocardiograms are read by many health professionals, but it is critical that they be interpreted and understood by cardiologists. A four-hour session of the cardiology board exam is devoted to interpreting ECGs, and they are featured extensively in the anaesthesiology and critical care boards as well. In November 1993, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) begins recertification exams for its members. The ability to interpret ECGs is seen as being so crucial that the ACC has begun to offer review courses on the subject. This text consists of 200, high quality, three channel electrocardiograms, ranging from simple to complex, accompanied by a complete narrative history and usual interpretations. Readers can make their own diagnoses before turning the page to read the answer.

THE account of the use of mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This second edition continues the role established by its predecessor as the leading work in the field. Mechanical ventilation, as a defining event of critical care, has seen an explosion of physiologic and outcomes research in the past decade. Our thinking about management of ARDS, ventilator-induced lung injury, patient-ventilator interaction, and infectious complications has changed dramatically. All of this recent work is summarized here."--Doody's Review Service

Editor Martin J. Tobin--past editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine--has completely revised this text, acclaimed by The Lancet as "the bible of mechanical ventilation." The new edition is a cover-to-cover revision of the original content, filled with cutting-edge scientific insights from more than 200 contributors representing critical care, pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, basic science, and radiology.

Features:

  • Up-to-the minute, rigorous coverage that addresses every important scientific, clinical, and technical aspect of the field
  • 70 well-organized chapters that encompass the full scope of mechanical ventilation, including the physical basis of mechanical ventilation; conventional, alternative, noninvasive, and unconventional methods of ventilator support; complications and airway management; and ethics and economics
  • 24 new chapters on current issues in mechanical ventilation: Closed Loop Ventilation, Inhaled Antibiotic Therapy, Sleep and Speech in the Ventilated Patient, Mechanical Ventilation in ARDS, Ventilation Outside the ICU, and more
  • Highly relevant new chapters on pharmacological and adjuvant therapy
  • Greater use of tables and lists that conveniently summarize key information and solidify chapter concepts
