Overview


Main description

An all-in-one guide to mechanical assist devices for the treatment of heart failure

This complete guide addresses all of the clinical scenarios encountered by the health care team during the pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative periods following device implantation. In addition, it outlines the specific attributes of various technologies that are currently utilized by clinicians, giving you a practical view of how the latest devices work. You’ll also find a mini-catalog of the spectrum of current devices, complete with their technical and clinical specifications.

Drawing on the latest published data and the combined global expertise of a renowned author team, Mechanical Circulatory Support puts the field’s most essential perspectives right at your fingertips.

FEATURES:

  • The unmatched mechanical circulatory device sourcebook, covering the physiological, technical, regulatory, and clinical aspects of ventricular assist devices
  • Full-color presentation features a wide range of photographs, radiographs, tables, and clearly labeled clinical and schematic illustrations
  • Essential insights into the physiology of heart failure, which provides a basic foundation of knowledge for understanding the role of mechanical circulatory assistance in the management of heart failure
  • Logical two-part organization consisting of: Clinical Considerations in mechanical circulatory support, including device history/development and indications for device therapy; perioperative management; complications; and special considerations (use in infants/children, pulmonary hypertension during LVAD support, and more)
    Device-Specific Considerations, which provides a mini-catalog of manufacturer’s devices—-from short-term devices to long-term continuous flow devices—-and highlights technical and clinical specifications for each product
  • Guide to appropriate device selection using a simplified framework in an industry that produces an increasing array of short- and long-term therapies
  • Helpful chapter introductions provide essential background information that places each chapter topic in its proper clinical and technical context
  • Conclusions at the end of each chapter offer a concise summary of chapter material
  • Full chapter-ending references provide opportunities for further research
