A complete, full-color clinical manual and review of TEE

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is an excellent addition to the library of books on TEE. It is concise yet thorough, well written with excellent illustrations, graphs, and tables that enhance the reading, and provides an outstanding review of the subject. I would highly recommend this to all cardiothoracic anesthesiologists, especially fellows in training."--Doody's Review Service

"All in all, the second edition of the Clinical Manual and Review of Transesophageal Echocardiography is a very solid entry into what I would consider the “board preparation” category of echocardiography textbooks. The chapters are concise and well illustrated, and most have an extensive number of questions that allow readers to identify topics that they may need to review in greater depth. With expert contributing authors and sound editing, the second edition of this book would be a valuable addition to the library of anesthesiologists interested in a text covering the breadth of topics related to perioperative echocardiography."--Anesthesia & Analgesia

"This represents a herculean editorial challenge as to the educational framework required by the various audiences who use this book to guide clinical care as well as study for Board examinations: resident, fellow, and attending physician. The challenge is to make this text useful to the novice and serve as a resource for the experienced clinician....[The book] represents a narrative and graphic standard that will enhance the knowledge of the reader and facilitate application of exemplary clinical care to high-risk patients in the perioperative period."--Paul Barash, MD, Professor of Anesthesiology, Yale University School of Medicine, from the foreword

Clinical Manual and Review of Transesophageal Echocardiography offers concise yet comprehensive coverage of the key principles, concepts, and developing practice of TEE. Each chapter provides a summary of the physiology, pathophysiology, tomographic views, and the required two-dimensional, M-Mode, and Doppler echocardiography data for a number of common disease states. Important clinical information is integrated with the principles of cardiovascular physiology.

Features:

  • Addresses all the important clinical and technical issues and major exam topics
  • Enhanced anatomic representation of ultrasound imaging planes
  • Increased number of chapter-ending review questions
  • NEW companion CD-ROM includes practice questions for the TEE certification exams
  • An effective blend of narrative and bulleted text, charts, and graphs speeds access to key clinical information
  • Important new chapters on 3D TEE, epicardial and epiaortic ultrasonography, TEE in the emergency room, training and certification in perioperative TEE, and the TEE board exam

"The book focuses on the time tested way of "the Socratic method" to teach the key concepts to busy clinical cardiologists, fellows, anesthesiologists and sonographers using a multiple choice question & answer format. The book will emphasize diagnostic interpretation rather than clinical management. This book is comprehensive with chapters ranging from fundamentals to new technologies. The format of each chapter is standardized with 3 types of questions. At the beginning, there are simple Type I questions followed by an answer. Then, Type II questions involving a question associated with a still frame graphic (M-Mode, 2-D or a 3-D) come next and are followed by an answer. Finally, Type III questions are presented involving case studies associated with several questions based on movies and still frames"--

Covering both classical modalities of echocardiography and newer techniques, Clinical Echocardiography of the Dog and Cat shows how to assess, diagnose, and treat canine and feline heart disease. A clinical approach demonstrates how these modalities may be used to acquire images, and then how you can recognize and identify patterns, relate them to different diseases, and manage patient care with those findings. The print book includes a companion website with 50 videos of cardiac ultrasound exams and procedures. Written by veterinary cardiology specialists and echocardiographers Eric de Madron, Valerie Chetboul, and Claudio Bussadori, this indispensable echocardiology resource is ideal for general practitioner veterinarians as well as specialists, including cardiologists and radiologists. Dedicated coverage of canine and feline echocardiography emphasizes a more in-depth discussion of cardiac ultrasound, including the newest ones such as Tissue Doppler and speckle tracking imaging, and transesophageal and 3D echocardiography. A practical, clinical approach shows how these echocardiographic modalities are not just research tools, but useful in diagnosing and staging heart disease in day-to-day practice. Book plus website consolidates offers current information into a single cohesive source covering classical modalities and newer techniques, as well as updates relating to normal echocardiographic examinations and values. 50 videos on the companion website demonstrate how to perform echocardiography procedures, illustrating points such as swirling volutes, color flow display of blood flows, dynamic collapses secondary to pericardial effusion, and tumors flicking in and out of the echocardiographic field. A section on presurgical assessment helps you assess risk and prepare for catheter-based correction of cardiac defects — accurate measurements and proper device selection are key to a successful procedure. Over 400 full-color illustrations and 42 summary tables help you achieve precise, high-quality imaging for accurate assessment, including photographs of cadaver animal specimens to clarify the relationship between actual tissues in health and disease and their images.
