About this book
From its initial clinical use, over 28 years ago, to its current extensive use (over 100,000 times annually in the US alone), balloon pump equipment has developed into sophisticated, computer-assisted technology for mechanically aiding circulation. This book fully and clearly explains the function and clinical application of IABP in various clinical conditions. In addition, it reviews all the new achievements and complications of balloon pumping, such as percutaneous sheathless balloon catheter insertion and the addition of various control and alarm systems to the drive console to assure patient safety. Because the effective clinical application of IABP involves more than familiarity with the device and implications for its use, Dr Bolooki also discusses the causes of cardiac failure and its pathophysiology; the reversibility of ventricular dysfunction; and the other assist devices frequently used in conjunction with IABP in cases of severe cardiac failure. Recent IABP studies that evaluated the effect of this device on short- and long-term patient survival - and on the extent of myocardial salvage after ischemia or infarction - are also included in this extensively updated and expanded third edition.

About this book
This is the first comprehensive study guide covering all aspects of pediatric critical care medicine. It fills a void that exists in learning resources currently available to pediatric critical care practitioners. The major textbooks are excellent references, but do not allow concise reading on specific topics and are not intended to act as both text and study guide. There are also several handbooks available, but these are usually written for general pediatric residents and lack the advanced physiology and pathophysiology required for the higher level pediatric critical care practitioner. This study guide will bridge the gap between the current levels of books in press. It will be physiologically based covering major pediatric critical care principles and specific disease entities commonly encountered by the pediatric critical care practitioner. Pathophysiologic aspects unique to the pediatric patient will be emphasized. Chapters will contain margin notes stressing important key points to the reader and study questions based on the chapter focus will conclude each chapter. The outline of each chapter will be dependent on the section of text as outlines below. The condensed format of coverage is unique, involving heavily-illustrated text with self-assessment material to support learning objectives. The text is supported by case studies, tables and illustrations which describes the important theories and procedures on the pediatric critical care unit. This is useful for both pediatricians with patients either scheduled to enter the critical care unit or be discharged, pediatric critical care physicians and those in training and general critical care physicians who may see pediatric patients in their unit.
