The indispensable guide to the study of cardiac hemodynamics, now in a revised and updated edition
The Fourth Edition of Hemodynamic Rounds PDF was created with the intention of assisting cardiovascular fellowship trainees, cardiologists, residents, and other members of the medical community in enhancing their understanding of heart physiology and its accompanying hemodynamic presentations in illness and health. This encompasses the fundamentals of measuring flow and pressure; systemic and coronary hemodynamics in normal and pathological states; and changes in hemodynamics following interventional treatments such as valvuloplasty, transcatheter aortic valve implantation, and stent installation.
This new Fourth edition draws on case studies to illustrate typical cardiac hemodynamic findings, and it discusses the essential methods that are used in interpreting pressure waveforms as a diagnostic and monitoring tool. Previous editions of this book have been very popular, and this new edition follows in their footsteps.
The book is broken up into chapters that discuss particular regions of the heart, the most prevalent pathophysiologic diseases that affect the heart, and the hemodynamic circumstances that arise as a result of the various therapeutic techniques. It contains discussions of both typical and atypical variations in pressure waveforms. This brand new edition has been updated all throughout to incorporate brand new information on aortic and mitral valve stenosis and regurgitation, as well as TAVI and mitral clip hemodynamics. The following are some highlights:
- Includes both the bedside applications of hemodynamics as well as the evaluation of hemodynamics based on heart disorders.
- Those who are tasked with interpreting cardiac blood flow and blood pressure tracings have access to a resource that is both essential and straightforward.
- The entire work has been updated, and fresh new material on valve stenosis and regurgitation, as well as TAVI and mitral clip hemodynamics, has been added.
- Hemodynamic Rounds: Interpretation of Cardiac Pathophysiology from Pressure Waveform Analysis, Fourth Edition is an indispensable resource for all nurses, physicians, and medical students who are tasked with the responsibility of measuring and interpreting cardiac waveforms during cardiac diagnosis and monitoring.
