Описание: Clinical Cardiology: Current Practice Guidelines is an essential tool for the busy clinician, providing succinct yet detailed access to the most recent trial and guideline data supporting practice and patient management in cardiology. ESC and ACC/AHA guidelines are continually being updated and often overlap in their advice, making it difficult for the cardiologist to obtain a clear picture of the right way to diagnose and treat disease according to the latest evidence base. Written by leading authorities in the field, this book, together with its twice yearly-updated online version, provides a solution. The authors have scrutinized all available guidelines and research, collating the results into over 600 easily-accessible tables which provide the most recent recommendation by both ACC/AHA and the ESC on every clinical issue. These recommendations are considered in the context of the latest research and evolving evidence most relevant to the clinician, to give detailed insights into how best to proceed with treatment. This is discussed as part of 84 comprehensive chapters on pathophysiology, diagnosis and management. Each chapter offers concise information on definition, epidemiology, and pathophysiology of the disease, reflecting the latest published research. Following this is clear and instructive discussion of possible presentations and all clinical investigations that may be necessary. The authors have rigorously examined the implications of published guidance, and where appropriate considered new evidence that questions the validity of specific recommendations, as well as the opinion of established experts and other data such as FDA alerts. This guidance is supported by over 140 full-colour images, which reinforce key points and clarify difficult concepts. The online version is updated twice a year to ensure a continuously up-to-date reference source over time, which will establish itself as an essential part of everyday practi

Описание: Intensive Care Medicine (or Critical Care, the terms are used interchangeably) is an evolving specialty both within the UK and worldwide. It has recently been established as a UK speciality in it’s own right, and is at the centre of the modern acute hospital, responsible for managing the sickest and most complex patients.
There is a growing cadre of critical care specialists in the UK, underpinned by a large number of doctors in training within the specialty. Management of patients with severe traumatic injury is provided by intensive care specialists, often in conjunction with a range of other professionals such as surgeons and interventional radiologists.
The management of these patients, who have competing complex injuries can be challenging. Traumatic injury is recognised as a significant cause of preventable mortality and such patients are now clustered within Major Trauma Centres across the UK.
The Defence Medical Services of the UK have spent the last 10 years managing patients with very severe traumatic injuries, first in Iraq and most recently in Afghanistan. The lessons learnt from this experience has filtered through to the NHS, resulting in many changes to established practice.
Whilst several books have been published based on this experience, none have focused on the intensive care management of such patients, which represents a vital link in the chain of survival from injury to recovery.
