A title in the Practical Echocardiography Series.
This volume in the Practical Echocardiography Series provides practical, how-to guidance on effectively applying echocardiography to evaluate heart failure, make therapeutic decisions, and monitor therapy. Definitive, expert instruction is presented in a highly visual, case-based approach that facilitates understanding and equips you to accurately apply this technique while avoiding any potential pitfalls. Abundant, detailed figures and tables show you how to proceed, step by step, and get the best results.
"The book is divided into chapters covering echocardiography in heart failure (systolic, diastolic, and right heart failure), cardiomyopathies (hypertensive, ischemic, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy), and echocardiography with ventricular assist devices and heart transplantation. Each chapter discusses the basic principles, pointing to the advantages and limitations of the modality, and highlighting the key points in a separate box. The text is enriched with images, tables, and figures. Readers are also directed to online videos. Following each chapter there is a list of suggested reading on the subject. This is a concise yet comprehensive overview of echocardiography in heart failure and related conditions."- Omar Khatib, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation) Doody Review Services
