9780071592970: Critical Care Ultrasonography (with DVD)

A complete, hands-on guide to successful image acquisition and interpretation at the bedside

"The real strength of this textbook is its clinical focus. The editors are to be complimented on keeping a consistent structure within each chapter, beginning with basic physical principles, practical “knobology,” scanning tips, key findings, pitfalls and limitations, and how the key findings relate to bedside patho-physiology and decision-making. Thus, the authors have succeeded in providing a reference standard to support bedside critical care providers to understand the context for their personal sonographically guided decision-making processes."--Critical Care Medicine

Written by top practitioners in the field, this all-in-one text/DVD package is filled with practical guidance that helps you master clinical ultrasonography in a critical care environment. Here, you’ll learn exactly how to utilize diagnostic ultrasound as part of the physical exam, as the book examines current evidence supporting its use in the critically ill adult and child.

Organized by body system, Critical Care Ultrasonography features self-contained chapters that can be used as individual reference guides for a range of interventions, from transthoracic echocardiography to echocardiagraphic evaluation of cardiac trauma. Through this in-depth coverage, you’ll get a sense of how this essential technology supports the cross-disciplinary nature of critical care. The book’s authoritative content is reinforced throughout by a full-color presentation and hundreds of concept-clarifying illustrations, figures, and images.
