The use of ultrasound in perioperative and critical care medicine is growing rapidly. This handy book simplifies the subject of echocardiography by focusing on the essential, basic information needed for successful use by surgeons, anesthesiologists, and physicians as well as students. Coverage includes transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE), transthoracic applications, and surface ultrasound with nerve blocks and vascular access.
Presented in a concise and practical format - the hallmark of this successful series - the book contains numerous illustrations and ultrasound images that show correct procedures and interpretations. A bonus mini-CD is included with an extensive collection of moving ultrasound images for detailed views, with graphics for further explanations and pointers to specific images. The videos and graphics are situated in a simple navigational program and are referred to in the Pocket Guide by icons, providing an integrated and effective learning tool.
