Congenital Heart Disease in Adults Book Review:

Dr. Perloff, the founding father of the field of adult congenital heart disease, presents a decade's worth of research and clinical data in the completely redefined 3rd edition to bring you the most current information. With advances in diagnosis and treatment in children, more and more of those with CHD survive well into adulthood. Expert contributors in various fields offer a multi-disciplinary, multi-system approach to treatment so you get comprehensive coverage on all aspects of the subspecialty, including basic unoperated malformations, medical and surgical perspectives, postoperative residue, and sequelae. As someone who treats these patients, you need to be ready to provide the continual care they require. Conveys a multidisciplinary, multi-system approach to the lifelong care of adult CHD patients to put treatment in a broader context. Presents information in a consistent, logical style so the information you need is easy to find and apply. Supplements the text with 600 clear conceptual illustrations to clarify difficult concepts. Features completely rewritten chapters to include the latest developments in the field-such as major advances in surgical and interventional techniques-and the various needs of patients with adult CHD. Incorporates recently published trials such as those involving cyanotic CHD and atherogenesis, coronary microcirculation, and pathogenesis of thrombocytopenia to supplement the chapter on cyanotic CHD. Emphasizes advances in imaging in a new section-edited by an expert-that covers echocardiography as well as specialized imaging techniques. Illustrates the full range of advances in the field with 600 images that reflect the latest progress. Includes new chapters-Global Scope of ACHD; Cardiac Transplantation; Electrophysiologic Abnormalities in Unoperated Patients and Residue and Sequelae After Cardiac Surgery-to provide you with the latest information on the growth of the subspecialty and its effect on treatment. Presents revisions by a new authorship of experts in infectious disease, genetics and epidemiology, sports medicine, neurology, cardiac surgery, cardiac anesthesiology, and more.

Congenital Heart Disease Book Review:

This book provides the theoretical and practical basis of technical nursing in congenital heart disease; it is intended for nurses and nursing students, and for anyone involved in the treatment of these patients. The improvements in diagnosis and management of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) are due to the recent advances in cardiac surgery and interventional cardiology and have meant that an increasing number of infants are reaching adolescence and adulthood. This manual is a practical and easy-to-use guide, which promotes effective cooperation between health professionals. Congenital heart disease is a disorder that is present at birth, and studies show that the incidence is around eight cases per thousand live births. The heart is formed during the first four - ten weeks of gestation, and alterations to this process can affect normal development, leading to heart defects. There are various types of heart defects: abnormalities that affect a single part of the heart (for example a valve) but also, highly complex abnormalities where there is severe damage to the cardiac architecture. The seriousness of the disease and the effects on child health vary: some forms have no real impact on child health and allow a normal life, while others are incompatible with life.
