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.

The revised edition of Clinical Disorders of Fluid and Electrolyte Metabolism , 4th ed., 1987 (cited in Brandon-Hill ). Part I defines the physiologic basis for electrolyte traffic across membranes and identifies the mechanisms underlying the excretion and conservation of ions and water. Principles elaborated in Part I, in turn, become the skeleton giving structure to the first section of Part II, wherein the primary disruptions of normal ion and fluid metabolism are identified and dissected. In the second section of Part II, the principles of physiology, pathophysiology, and the clinical aspects of the primary electrolyte and fluid disorders give defining substance to those clinical settings and syndromes in which these disorders play critical roles.

|Clinical Electrocardiography: PreTest? Self-Assessment and Review
Lowest new price: $56.99
Lowest used price: $9.12
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.
|Hard Choices for Loving People: CPR, Artificial Feeding, Comfort Measures Only and the Elderly Patient

Author: Hank Dunn
"Hard Choices for Loving People" is written for people who are making medical treatment decisions in the face of a life-threatening illness. Over 650,000 copies have been sold and are being used in more than 3,000 hospitals, nursing homes and hospice programs nationwide. In "Hard Choices" Chaplain Dunn reviews the medical research on common treatments like resuscitation attempts and artificial feeding tubes. Often these treatments offer no benefit for frail, seriously ill patients. Hank Dunn believes that because of the little benefit offered by these treatments for some patients, decisions about their use are emotional and spiritual in their nature. The bottom line question patients and their families struggle with is "Can I let go?"
