About these proceedings


Aim of the volume is to describe the intensive control of the cardiologic patient. Mechanisms concerning cardiovascular emodynamics and interpretation of cardiovascular function in the perioperative period and in intensive care are described. Particular importance is given to diagnosis and treatment of the so-called dangerous arrhythmias in the perioperative period, to cardiac rhythm disturbances caused by drugs overdose and by electrolytic alterations.
