Pattern recognition is an important learning tool in the
interpretation of ECGs. Unfortunately, until faced with a patient
with an arrhythmia or structural heart disease, pediatric
practitioners generally receive limited exposure to ECGs. The
ability to clearly distinguish an abnormal ECG pattern from a
normal variant in an emergency situation is an essential skill, but
one that many pediatricians feel ill-prepared to utilize
confidently. In "Pediatric ECG Interpretation: An Illustrative
Guide," Drs. Deal, Johnsrude and Buck aim to address this issue by
illustrating many of the ECG patterns a pediatric practitioner is
likely to encounter.
ECG illustrations with interpretations are presented in several
categories: normal children of all ages, acquired abnormalities
such as hypertrophy or electrolyte disorders, and common congenital
heart disease lesions. Later sections cover bradycardia,
supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, and a basic section
on pacemaker ECGs. Simple techniques used to interpret mechanisms
of arrhythmias are described as a resource for practitioners in
cardiology, adult electrophysiology, or pediatrics who may not have
a readily accessible resource for these ECG examples.

This fascinating volume applies the concept of chronomics to the medical treatment of hypertension. It starts with the recent updates on chronomics, the analytic techniques, and their application to community-based assessments. The authors advocate the use of 7-day/24-h records of blood pressure, which is effective for finding masked hypertension, masked morning surge, and other rhythm abnormalities. Most organisms, from cyanobacteria to mammals, are known to use the circadian mechanism. However, our body systems also demonstrate circaseptan (roughly weekly), circannual (roughly yearly), and even longer rhythms. Chronomics monitors the physiological data and then analyzes the superimposed rhythms, isolating the cycles mathematically to determine how organisms and their environment interact. It is the study of interactions among time structures (chronomes) in and around us.
This book fulfills the need for practical guidance among all professionals involved in the management of these patients, from residents and fellows of cardiology and internal medicine, surgical teams, physiotherapy professionals, critical care physicians and family medicine practitioners. The thoroughly updated content takes into account recent developments in cardiac rehabilitation, and incorporates practical advice on how to use guidelines in clinical practice. There will be one new chapter on patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy and all the others will be updated to keep up-to-date with the guidelines and current practice. Cardiac rehabilitation is of key importance to ameliorate long-term morbidity and mortality resulting from cardiac diseases and events. However, much of the current literature is dense, unwelcoming and academic in style and format. For those physicians understanding the scope of cardiac rehabilitation there is a need to distill the guidelines and various management options available to them into a concise practical manual. Up until now, all references have looked at the general options, but there is definite need to investigate the practicalities of individual patient groups.

This concise practical guide is designed to facilitate the clinical decision-making process in the management of rotational atherectomy procedures by reviewing a number of cases and defining the various diagnostic and management decisions open to clinicians. It will be well illustrated but concise, enabling the reader to obtain relevant information regarding both standard and unusual cases in a rapid, easy to digest format. Each case will also include a narrative description and patient management tips. Rotational atherectomy ('rotablator') is used to treat heavily calcified lesions within coronary arteries at the time of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Lesions that are inadequately treated may not be dilatable by balloons; and stents that are implanted in such lesions are at high risk for acute stent thrombosis and stent failure. However, rotablator therapy is high risk and present unique challenges to the interventionalists. Complications are generally uncommon. However, when they do occur, they tend to be disastrous. In this case book, we present a series of rotablator cases: basic, complex cases, difficult cases, complications and unusual situations. Although PCI operators all have some degree of experience with this therapy, each operator is unlikely to have significant experience given the cost of the device and the risk involved. Therefore, this book will provide interventionalists with a valuable compendium of cases which can help them in the management of patients whom they plan to treat with rotational atherectomy.
This book provides a comprehensive account of the pathogenesis, clinical features, and management of ocular vascular occlusive disorders, with the focus very much on the scientific evidence. This offers a sound basis for addressing the many controversies that surround these disorders, which collectively constitute the most common cause of visual impairment or blindness. The book is divided into two sections, the first of which addresses the basic science and encompasses vascular anatomy, blood supply and flow, and retinal tolerance time to acute ischemia. The second, clinical, section covers the presentation, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of the full range of vascular occlusive disorders of the retina, the choroid, the anterior segment of the eye, ophthalmic manifestations of carotid artery disease and the optic nerve. Ocular Vascular Occlusive Disorders, written by a distinguished world leader in the field, will be invaluable for general ophthalmologists, and particularly for retina specialists, neuro-ophthalmologists, and researchers.
Cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography remain key tools in the management of patients with coronary heart disease.

This textbook, covering key procedures and fully revised and updated to include the latest trials, technology, and new techniques, is essential reading. The Oxford Textbook of Interventional Cardiology, 2nd edition spans the whole spectrum of interventional cardiology procedures, including a novel section on the future of interventional cardiology, and multiple new chapters covering special devices in percutaneous coronary intervention. Written by an expert team of international authors, this book offers guidance on all aspects of interventional cardiology according the European curriculum, and covers the evidence-based guidelines for a comprehensive view of the field.
