About this book


This book covers all aspects of modern techniques used in the rapidly developing field of adult critical care echocardiography, 3D transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, myocardial tissue velocity and deformation assessment, and contrast echocardiography. Featuring multiple color illustrations and echocardiographic images, it provides essential information on the technical aspects and current specifics of the equipment, anatomical imaging guidance, and physiological and pathological approaches with a focus on critically ill population. This book helps practitioners to not only understand the techniques and the applicability of these new technologies in various disease states, but also to apply them in a clinical setting. 3D echo, tissue deformation and contrast are opening tremendous new horizons for intensive care practitioners, offering them previously unimaginable insights into cardiac mechanics and anatomy and using non-invasive approaches for central hemodynamic diagnostic and monitoring management of intensive care patients. It also opens the way for completely new areas in clinical research. 

This book is useful for intensive care physicians, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, emergency physicians and sonographers involved in the provision of advanced echocardiographic services in intensive care units and in critical care environments. It is also suitable for students undertaking a Diploma of Diagnostic Ultrasound (Critical Care) with the Australasian Society of Ultrasound Medicine, adding to the existing literature used to prepare for the second and third parts examinations.
