Ultrasound In Critical Care

Puneet Khanna Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers

This book is a complete guide to the use of ultrasound in critical care. Beginning with an overview of ultrasound and its applications, the next chapters discuss basic physics of ultrasound, modes of ultrasonography, and Doppler imaging. The following sections cover the use of ultrasound in different critical care situations including for vascular access, in acute respiratory distress syndrome, for cardiac evaluation, in neurocritical care, in the ICU, and more. The book concludes with clinical case scenarios and guidance on infection control and legal issues in ICU sonography. The comprehensive text is further enhanced by more than 300 ultrasound images, figures and tables to assist learning. Key points Comprehensive guide to the use of ultrasound in critical care Includes discussion on basic physics and modes of ultrasound Provides clinical case scenarios and guidance on infection control Features more than 300 ultrasound images, figures and tables

Cardiovascular Mechanics

Michel R. Labrosse CRC Press

The objective of this book is to illustrate in specific detail how cardiovascular mechanics stands as a common pillar supporting such different clinical successes as drugs for high blood pressure, prosthetic heart valves and coronary artery bypass grafting, among others. This information is conveyed through a comprehensive treatment of the overarching principles and theories that are behind mechanobiological processes, aortic and arterial mechanics, atherosclerosis, blood and microcirculation, hear valve mechanics, as well as medical devices and drugs. Examines all major theoretical and practical aspects of mechanical forces related to the cardiovascular system. Discusses a unique coverage of mechanical changes related to an aging cardiovascular system. Provides an overview of experimental methods in cardiovascular mechanics. Written by world-class researchers from Canada, the US and EU. Extensive references are provided at the end of each chapter to enhance further study. Michel R. Labrosse is the founder of the Cardiovascular Mechanics Laboratory at the University of Ottawa, where he is a full professor within the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He has been an active researcher in academia along with being heavily associated with the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. He has authored or co-authored over 90 refereed communications, and supervised or co-supervised over 40 graduate students and post-docs.

Telemedicine In Dermatology

H. Peter Soyer Springer Science & Business Media

Written by leading teledermatologists and telemedicine experts, this hands-on guide addresses the practical needs of the many emerging teledermatology services worldwide. It covers the medical and technical prerequisites for such services as well as the photographic imaging essentials. It also illustrates the performance of teledermatology by means of clinical examples, discusses teledermatology in underdeveloped countries, and presents specialized methods of teledermatology. The impact of telemedicine on the doctor-patient relationship is explored, and the advantages that accrue from improving access to expert knowledge are explained. In addition, quality assurance, legal assumptions, economic aspects, and the future horizons of such health care services are all considered. A comprehensive appendix provides information on training opportunities, sample protocols, consent forms, information sheets, references, and relevant web links.
