Here's a highly accessible, dependable source of guidance on the analysis of the hemodynamic waveforms generated in the cardiac catheterization lab. It progresses from a review of basic monitoring principles and normal waveforms through an assessment of the waveform data associated with the full range of individual coronary diseases, providing you with all the assistance you need to accurately interpret any findings you might encounter in practice. While many cardiac catheterization books cover hemodynamics, none offer the level of detail and visual back up that you'll find inside this book. Its extremely clinically oriented approach makes it an ideal hands-on tool for any clinician involved in diagnosing cardiac problems using interventional cardiology.Table of Contents
- Straightforward, richly illustrated explanations clarify even the most advanced interpretation concepts and skills.
- A useful overview of today's catheterization lab technology enables you to understand the latest advances in waveform acquisition.
- Thorough coverage of both normal and abnormal findings helps you distinguish normal waveforms from those indicative of disease.
- A disease-oriented assessment of waveform data demonstrates how both qualitative and quantitative interpretation can affect clinical decision making.
