1 of 3
New aspects of the place of cardiovascular drugs in anaesthesia addressed by Professor Pierre Coriat and a group of internationally respected authors in this important clinical Text.

The interactions of the current drugs used in major cardiovascular conditions are described, and therapeutic regimens recommended to counteract possible adverse effects during surgery or in the intensive care unit.
The first part of the book covers the pre– and perioperative management of surgical patients with disease of the cardiovascular system, with chapters on the current drugs in use:

β–adrenoreceptor antagonists

Calcium channel blockers

ACE inhibitors

Antiarrhythmic agents


The second part discusses the maintenance of the acute cardiovascular patient on the intensive care unit, with chapters on:

Intraoperative hypertension

Postoperative hypertension

Prevention of myocardial ischaemia in cardiac surgery

Treatment of perioperative left ventricular dysfunction

Perioperartive arrhythmiasPulmonary hypertension

Pharmacological treatment of hyopoxaemia

Comprehensive coverage of clinical management is accompanied in a concise, well–referenced book that will become an essential reference work for all practising anaesthetists and intensivists.
