Fully updated new edition of a successful practical guide to the pathogenesis, recognition and management of hematologic problems in neonates.
Author: James H. Moller, Walter H. Johnson
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
A unique and straightforward explanation of complex pathophysiology of cardiac malformations Addresses the important and growing concern of diagnosing heart disease and cardiac problems in pediatric care Provides the skills necessary for today's managed care environment in using the history, physical examination, ECG, and chest X-ray to uncover possible problems and eliminate areas of false concern Topics covered include preventive cardiology and health promotion, heart disease in the neonate and in special populations, congenital cardiac malformation, acquired cardiac conditions, and congestive heart failure
This handbook of drugs used in pediatric cardiac care will satisfy the need for a quick reference source of common drug therapy. There are no major texts available in the field of pediatric cardiology that exclusively provide therapeutic drug information. Several sources are available that present drug information for cardiology, but these place no emphasis on pediatric care and are written for general cardiac specialists.
Heart disease in children has a number of diagnostic traps for the unwary, and all of us involved in the specialty have been caught at one time or another. For example, it is sometimes very difficult to differentiate between respiratory and cardiac disease in infants and between neurological and cardiac conditions in older children, and the consequences of taking the wrong path can be significant. This book is a collection of cases highlighting situations which can ensnare even the best cardiologist. Although they illustrate the importance of taking a good history and performing a thorough examination, the most important lesson is learning to keep an open mind and develop the ability to think laterally. As clinicians we need to have the confidence to make a decision for our patients but also the humility to be able to acknowledge that we don’t always get it right first time, and it is imperative that we learn from the experience. We hope the reader will find these short chapters interesting and while they are not evidence-based medicine in the true sense, they do represent a wide range of clinical experience from which we can all learn.
