A brand new series from Oxford University Press, the Oxford Clinical Imaging Guides are specifically designed to help doctors master imaging techniques. Each guide explains the principles and practice of using imaging in an easy-to-read, highly-illustrated, and authoritative manner. Acute and Critical Care Echocardiography is the first practical guide dedicated to helping doctors use transthoracic echocardiography to manage acutely and critically ill patients. The book provides readers with a grounding in theoretical evidence-based aspects of critical care echocardiography. Expert authors help the reader apply this knowledge on a daily basis via clear step-by-step techniques and a focus on problem-solving and safe practice. The book is mapped to the new accreditation syllabus in Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography set by the British Society of Echocardiography, ensuring that it is relevant to professional standards and teaches doctors exactly what they need to know. Self-assessment questions help readers retain what they have learned and revise for exams. An essential day-to-day reference and interactive guide, this unique book should never be far from the critical care medic's side.
