Addressing the changing needs of clinicians in today's CCU, ICU and CICU,�Manual of Cardiac Intensive Care�is an�easy-to-use, point-of-care reference�for cardiologists, intensivists, physicians, trainees, and other health care professionals who care for critically ill patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). This clinically-focused manual offers�practical guidance from leading cardiac intensive care experts�on the specialized and highly technological care of patients with severe CVD-myocardial infarction, heart failure, cardiogenic shock, and their complications, including respiratory failure and renal failure. The portable, paperback format makes it an�excellent resource for day-to-day practice�or as an�exam or recertification study tool.
  • Provides the�information you need in the CCU, ICU or CICU�to deliver high-quality care to increasingly complex and critically ill patients with CVD.�

  • Covers�important and emerging topics�such as COVID-19, fulminant myocarditis, cardiogenic shock, cardiorenal syndrome, cardiac tamponade, acute aortic dissection, takotsubo cardiomyopathy, and much more.�

  • Describes�key procedures�including arterial and radial central vascular access, temporary cardiac pacing, invasive hemodynamic monitoring, pericardiocentesis, and more.�

  • Covers a�range of topics for effective practice�including common misconceptions, clinical presentations, pathophysiology, management, and imaging.�

  • Includes more than�100�radiographic images, echocardiograms, ECGs, anatomic illustrations, and algorithms�throughout.�

  • Enhanced eBook version included with purchase.�Your enhanced eBook allows you to access�all of�the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.�
