    Înainte de a învăța electrocardiogramă trebuie bine înțeles ce așteptăm de la ea; de cele mai multe ori electrocardiograma nu este diagnosticul ci o treaptă spre diagnostic, dar o treaptă ușor de pășit dacă știi să calci. Există evident excepții în ambele sensuri: uneori electrocardiograma este diagnosticul (preexcitația, aritmia etc.), iar alteori nu te ajută cu nimic (de cele mai multe ori dacă încerci să găsești în electrocardiogramă ceea ce nu poate da). Ar fi o eroare să considerați electrocardiograma normală (cel mai dificil traseu pentru studenții la examen) în această categorie; o electrocardiogramă normală spune foarte multe! Și mai rău ar fi dacă, posedând un aparat electrocardiografic cu diagnostic computerizat, v-ați baza pe diagnosticul calculatorului; am consumat în timp mai multă energie corectând diagnosticele calculatorului decât cea consumată pentru analiza “manuala” a traseului.

    Electrocardiograma este o reprezentare grafică a unui fenomen care se descrie vectorial și care pornește de la câteva axiome (datorate marelui Einthoven); majoritatea acestor axiome au fost fizic infirmate sau modificate în timp. Morala acestei constatări este că valoarea electrocardiogramei stă în comparație (fie că ne referim la traseele anterioare ale pacientului, fie ale altor pacienți cu aceeași condiție sau în lipsa lor, cu mai mică valoare, la modelul învățat despre cum trebuie să arate electrocardiograma în condiția dată). Obișnuiesc să recomand studenților mei să abordeze un traseu electrocardiografic în două etape: întâi să privească ca la un tablou și să-și facă o impresie generală, intuitivă, apoi să o uite pentru moment și să reevalueze sistematic traseul (ritmul atrial, conducerea atrioventriculară, depo- larizarea ventriculară, faza de repolarizare etc.) considerând mereu derivațiile sincrone împreună pentru a-și crea o imagine spațială. La cei pe care mi i-am apropiat și au avut răbdare cu mine (și reciproc) lucrurile au funcționat. Iar această metodologie trebuie aplicată indiferent că traseul pare simplu sau dificil. De altfel această terminologie este foarte subiectivă și ține mai mult de interpret decât de traseu. Nu o dată mi s-a cerut să prezint doar trasee „foarte interesante” (citește complicate) și am avut surpriza să constat cât de bine se descurcă unii la probleme delicate și cum se poticnesc la cele simple. Orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare.

    De la premisa că orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare, ne-am hotărât să prezentăm celor dornici de a-și schimba condiția, trasee din colecția noastră, așa cum se înregistrează ele în viața reală, mai mult sau mai puțin “perfecte”, mai mult sau mai puțin complicate. Intenția noastră este să alcătuim câteva volume separate. Acest prim volum conține un număr de electrocardiograme simple și câteva mai complicate, comentate succint. De la început trebuie să fie clar că această publicație nu se vrea, în nici un caz un manual de învățare de electrocardiograme ci doar o culegere de “exerciții pentru acasă” așa cum, demult, fiecare dintre noi o făcea la matematică. El este destinat oricui crede că intenția noastră ii folosește, fie el student, rezident, tânăr sau experimentat medic...

    Monografia "Repercusiuni miocardice si coronariene in boli cronice " constituie o sinteza de peste 50 de ani desfasurata de prof. Dr. Nicolae Balta, membru al Academiei de Stiinte Medicale, distins cercetator din cadrul fostului Institut de Fiziologie Normala si Patologica "Daniel Danielopolu" al Academiei Romane.

     Lucrarea este o edificatoare sursa de documentare din domenul implicarii bolii cronice in patologia miocardo-coronariana, concept ce are la baza interdependenta in conditii fiziologice si patologiceale ale  functiilor miocardice si dinamica circulatiei coronare, componente ale aparatului cardiovascular care nu pot functiona bine decat impreuna. Este conceptul miocardo-coronarian cu valoare euristica ce poate contribui la estimarea si evaluarea unor aspecte importante intr-un domeniu de importanta covarsitoare in privinta cunoasterii si aprofundarii cadrului nosologic si a interrelatiilor morfofunctionale miocardice si coronariene in bolile cronice.

     Conceptul miocardo-coronarian reflecta just realitatea in domeniul enuntat conferind medicului capacitatea unei atitudini de ansamblu comprehensiv in aprofundarea si evaluarea diagnosticului de studiu evolutiv, a conditiei terapeutice si precizarea prognosticului bolilor cronice, domeniu de mare insemnatate al medicinii interne contemporane, care preocupa si alerteaza lumea medicala mondiala, socio-economica si politica. Conceptul miocardo-coronarian mai este relevant si ilustrativ pentru analiza medicinii omului sanatos, activ, educat si demn in desfasurarea activitatii sale.

     Prezentarea celor 14 capitole este realizata in baza unei metodologii elaborate conform conceptului miocardo-coronarian, care, reprezinta metode de studiu si de cercetare a mecanismelor de producere a fenomenelor patologice miocardice si coronariene in cursul evolutiei bolilor cronice. Acaeasta modalitate de prezentare confera lucrarii un caracter unitar al legaturilor dintre patologia miocardo-coronariana si bolile cronice care au incidenta de crestere rapida in acest secol.

    Aparent, consecinta a atator progrese majore in diagnosticul bolilor cardiovasculare, electrocardiografia clasica tinde sa devina cenusareasa explorarilor cardiovasculare. in realitate nimic nu este mai fals pentru ca, in profida progreselor stiintifice si tehnice exploivize, electrocardiografia clinica isi pastreaza in continuare intreaga valoare. Electrocardiografia ramane metoda de selectie si de neinlocuit pentru o categorie tot mai vasta si mai periculoasa de suferinte cardiace-tulburarile de ritm. Actualmente, cand prin medicatie sofisticata, manopere interventionale sau interventii chirurgicale de anvergura se reuseste prezervarea functiei de pompa a inimii pentru o perioada indelungata, indiferent de suferinta cardiaca initiala, tot mai frecvent decesul bolnavilor este conditionat de aparitia tulburarilor de ritm fatale, de regula precedate de alte tulburari de ritm care pot fi diagnosticate prin electrocardiografie. Electrocardiografia are rol in diagnosticul de sindrom(hipertrofii, blocuri de ramura, etc) sau ca element de diagnostic adjuvant(intoxicatii medicamentoase, etc).

    Urgentele cardiovasculare continua sa detina primul loc ca incidenta, severitate si risc de deces. Frecvent, rapiditatea interventiei terapeutice este aceea care decide viata sau moartea bolnavilor. De aceea, se impune cunoasterea si aplicarea, cel putin intr-o prima etapa, a unor algoritmi simpli de diagnostic si tratament care sa ofere bolnavilor sansa de a supravietui. Este ceea ce incearca sa ofere Urgente cardiovasculare in camera de garda. Desigur, dupa aplicarea primelor masuri de diagnostic si tratament, medicul va avea timp sa consulte si sa recurga la toate manoperele si terapiile recomandate in ghiduri sau in tratate de specialitate.

    Hipertensiunea pulmonară – subiect de carte – iată ce aduce nou acest Congres de Cardiologie.

      Hipertensiunea pulmonară a ajuns un subiect modern, mai ales acum în lumina noilor tratamente active.

      Este vorba de:

    - medicaţia ,,la zi” (prostacicline şi analogii prostaciclinelor; anatagonişti ai receptorilor endotelinei - bosentan, macitentan; inhibitori ai fosfodiesterazei – sildenafil, riociguat şi, de ce nu, blocanţii de calciu...),

    - combinaţiile medicamentoase,

    - procedurile intervenţionale şi chirurgicale (transplantul bipulmonar) care ar putea salva viaţa acestor bolnavi.

     

    Cum se prezintă în Clinică o istorie de hipertensiune pulmonară?

      Este ceva ce o diferenţiază concret de alte cazuri?

      Da, sunt lucruri care îi dau un aer personal, o fac să fie asemenea prezenţei materne – când o vezi să-i spui cu certitudine, cu toată încrederea ,,ea este a mea mămică” ca şi Nichita Stănescu…

     

    ,,Mânjii toţi au zis de iepe,

                   Firul cepii a zis de cepe,

                   Nucii toţi au zis de nucă,

                      Cucii toţi au zis de cucă,

                   Toţi pisoii de pisică,

                   Iară eu, de-a mea mămică! ”

     

    Cine a contribuit la ,,rezolvarea” acestor cazuri?

    O seamă de doctori din toată ţara; i-am adunat (fiindu-mi mai aproape) pe cei din Bucureşti:

    - profesorul Miron Bogdan, preşedintele programului de Hipertensiune Pulmonară al Ministerului Sănătăţii,

    - profesorul I. M. Coman, coordonator al programului HTP în ,,IUBCV C.C. Iliescu” şi preşedintele Fundaţiei adulţilor cu boli cardiace congenitale

    - doamna doctor Ioana Ghiorghiu care a fost responsabilă de acest program în Clinica de Cardiologie III, ca să-l predea apoi

    - doamnei doctor Roxana Enache – care cu perseverenţă şi îndrăzneală a adunat în jurul său doctorii interesaţi de această patologie.

     

    Există istorii clinice surprinzătoare?

    Da, o mulţime: cazuri familiale; hipertensiunea portopulmonară; ventricul stâng unic necorectat; dextrocardie, sindrom Eisenmenger, prolaps de valvă mitrală şi tricuspidă; histiocitoză cu celule Langerhans; obezitate şi sindrom de apnee în somn; hipertensiuni tromboembolice operabile sau nu; scleroză sistemică; hipertensiune pulmonară multifactorială (are chirurgul vreun rol?); diagnostic de hipertensiune pulmonară aparent ferm, dar infirmat...

     

    În plus – cartea are ataşat un CD care conţine întrebările şi răspunsurile ,,cheie” şi unele imagini interpretabile doar în mişcare.

     

    Merită să cumpăraţi această carte?

    Sigur! Veţi găsi lucruri cu adevărat noi despre cauzele şi modul de rezolvare – cel puţin parţial – al hipertensiunii pulmonare...

    Ce am făcut noi?

         Am renunțat la unele capitole (cum ar fi „alegerea metodei de evaluare”); am adăugat capitole noi (de pildă „adaptarea cordului la efortul fizic”, „cardio-oncologia”); am ameliorat unele fragmente prin schimbarea autorilor (de exemplu „tomografia computerizată” scrisă de prof. dr. Ioana Lupescu, „rezonanța magnetică nucleară” de dr. Răzvan Capșa), am îmbogățit unele capitole (de pildă „regurgitarea aortică” scrisă de dr. Roxana Enache, acesta fiind titlul doctoratului său, „evaluarea riscului perioperator în chirurgia non-cardiacă și cardiacă” scrisă de noul intervenționist dr. Lucian Predescu).

    Ce am adus nou?

         Am îmbogățit unele capitole, schimbându-le aspectul: am înlocuit, de exemplu, prezentarea de caz Marfan cu altele noi, fistulele cutanate și coronariene, la „evaluarea clinică a bolilor cardiovasculare”; am ameliorat capitolele (adăugând, de pildă, „ecografia de stres” la „ecocardiografie”; am adus la zi capitolele vechi, adăugându-le noile clasificări (la „cardiomiopatii”) sau noile indicații ale ghidurilor ESC (la capitolul „tromboembolismul pulmonar”); am schimbat aproape totul – în mod special prezentările de caz (la hipertensiunea pulmonară, bolile cardiace congenitale, pericardite).

    Ce frapează acum?

         Aerul nou al cărții; plăcerea de a scrie oriunde a autorilor (capitolul de „prevenție” s-a scris în străinătate) și minuțiozitatea extremă a descrierilor (vezi insuficiența cardiacă) și expunerea excepționalei experiențe a medicilor (vezi „afectarea cardiacă în alte condiții patologice”).

         Astfel, putem spune că am preluat de la maeștrii noștri – prof. dr. C. C. Iliescu, prof. dr. Costin Carp, prof. dr. Eduard Apetrei – tot ceea ce au realizat; am „cules” de la scriitorii care au publicat în Editura Academiei Române claritatea stilului și am încercat să realizăm o carte foarte bună.

    Ce spun autorii?

    • O experiență nouă, o bucurie de a transmite ceea ce am învățat noilor generații alegând cu parcimonie ceea ce este de scris pe hârtie. (Prof. dr. Bogdan Alexandru Popescu)

    • Am scris cu deosebită conștiinciozitate tot ce mi s-a părut interesant, încercând să „prind” publicul în nesfârșitele contradicții ale insuficienței cardiace și bolilor cardiace congenitale. (Prof. dr. Ioan Mircea Coman)

    • Mi-am ales cu grijă temele pentru a ilustra cât mai convingător ce este nou printre factorii de risc, insuficiența cardiacă, ischemia mezenterică. Mi-am ridicat sus ștacheta și am încercat s-o depășesc. (Conf. dr. Ruxandra Jurcuț)

    • Am încercat să ies din tipare, să fac atrăgătoare prezentările ECG și de HTA prin exemple deosebite și să adaug un nou „farmec” tromboembolismului pulmonar... (Dr. Carmen Beladan)

    • Am scris cu atenție, reluând nu odată textul, încercând să fac cât mai clare valvulopatiile, cu nenumăratele lor nuanțe. (Dr. Andreea Călin)

    • O experiență cu adevărat nouă. Am încercat împreună cu colegii mei de echipă și chirurgul șef al clinicii de chirurgie să descriu în amănunt bolile aortei și moartea subită și resuscitarea cardiacă cu toate datele sale noi. (Conf. dr. Ovidiu Chioncel)

    • Mi-am dorit să limpezesc, să aduc la zi tot ceea ce se știe acum despre angina stabilă, inclusiv despre noile anticoagulante, și să ilustrez cât mai atrăgător tot ceea ce este nou. (Dr. Adrian Mereuță)

    • Nu este numai ce s-a scris (pot zice că am muncit din greu la sindroamele coronariene acute cu supradenivelare de ST), ci și modul în care s-a lucrat, nesfârșita grijă pentru fiecare amănunt, pentru fiecare cuvânt. (Dr. Cosmin Călin)

    Păreri ale cititorilor

       • Printr-un efort colectiv deosebit, gestionat cu deplină competență de editor, a rezultat o lucrare remarcabilă, care va servi ca o „carte de bază” pentru generațiile viitoare de cardiologi. (Prof. dr. Tiberiu Nanea)

    Summary

    Given current trends toward obesity, sedentary lifestyles, and poor diets, hypertension is increasingly becoming a disease of the young as well as the elderly, affecting about 1 billion people worldwide. Many patients, especially the younger ones, would prefer alternative treatments. While natural remedies have been used for much longer than pharmaceutical-based treatments, few Western physicians are trained in alternative treatments of hypertension. Written by a dual board-certified nephrologist and internist as well as a Harvard-trained doctor of chemistry, Integrative Treatment of Hypertension: A Clinical and Mechanistic Approach offers an alternative approach to treating hypertension, providing sound mechanisms of action and practical implementation advice.

    The author meticulously analyzes the efficacy of treatments based on data from respected medical journals. The book begins with an introduction to the subject and explains the mechanisms of blood pressure and hypertension, describes common causes of hypertension, and reviews standard medications and their side effects. The author examines alternative methods of treatment, emphasizing mechanisms of action, similarities to standard medications, and practical recommendations for employing these methods.

    Chapters cover dietary factors in treating hypertension, alternative yet common diets, the efficacy of nonconsumptive methods of treatment, and descriptions of natural supplements in treating hypertension. The book also addresses blood pressure goals and categorizes each standard and alternative method of treatment, suggesting ways of implementing an integrative approach to hypertension treatment. A useful companion to any health care provider, this book presents a unique work that fills a niche within the medical community.

     This European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Handbook on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy has been developed by experts from the ESC Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy. Its recommendations are aligned with the ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines and based on the most recent scientific evidence in cardiovascular pharmacology and pharmacotherapy. The Handbook provides up-to-date information on pharmacotherapy for cardiovascular disease prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disease, including ischaemic heart disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, and structural heart disease. The Handbook also deals with the important problems of cardiovascular pharmacotherapy in pregnancy and lactation, kidney insufficiency, and liver disease as well as focusing on major drug interactions, a topic of extreme importance in clinical practice. Two large sections of the book provide a comprehensive A-Z formulary of cardiac and non-cardiac pharmacological agents with practical and accessible information on the most important pharmacological aspects of these agents and their use in clinical practice.

    The Handbook represents essential reading for cardiologists, general practitioners, internal medicine specialists, anaesthetists, clinical pharmacologists, geriatricians, obstetricians, and cardiovascular nurse consultants. Junior doctors and trainees in all these specialties are also likely to find this book of help.

    The print edition comes with full access to the online version that will be updated at yearly intervals to keep it up to date.

    This thoroughly revised textbook provides a practically applicable guide to three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE). Background is provided on the evolution of the technology and physics that support the implementation of both transthoracic and transesophageal approaches to 3DE. The incremental value of 3DE to assess cardiac chambers is also described. Moreover, a range of cardiac valvular diseases including the mitral, aortic, and tricuspid valve have been portrayed and illustrated in depth.These include congenital abnormalities, regurgitation and stenosis. Emphasis is also placed on technical aspects of the technique and where it can provide added value, including post-surgery assessments and evaluation of cardiac masses.

    Textbook of Three-Dimensional Echocardiography enables readers to develop a deep understanding of how to use this imaging modality. It provides a valuable resource for the echocardiography trainee looking to develop their knowledge and for the experienced practitioner seeking a comprehensive up-to-date reference.

    The sixth edition of Ellestad's classic text on cardiac stress testing has been extensively updated and re-written to communicate contemporary understanding of the classical principles of stress testing to clinicians and researchers, students and seasoned practitioners alike. The current techniques for performing stress tests presented herein reflect major technologic advances in imaging, physiologic monitoring and the assessment of cardiovascular risk, addressing fundamental paradigm shifts in interventional, surgical and medical treatment of heart disease. Moreover, the text addresses the dramatic changes that are occurring in patient demographics and the environmental, socioeconomic, gender and genomic factors that crucially impact heart disease and warrant attention when performing cardiac stress testing. Chapters on the physiology of exercise testing including practical details regarding protocols for conducting the stress test, proper supervision, important parameters to be monitored, and the diagnostic and prognostic information to be gleaned from the electrocardiogram set the stage for expanded chapters on the use of cardiac imaging in conjunction with stress testing. Physiologic and metabolic considerations during stress testing are covered in detail. Application of stress testing to special populations, such as women, children, athletes, and individuals in both high and low risk groups are covered in new chapters. Finally, the authors address the use of stress testing in limited resource environments and discuss global changes in the incidence of atherosclerosis, and suggest how stress testing may evolve.

    The book is designed to provide a flowing description of the physiology of heat stress, the illnesses associated with heat exposure, recommendations on optimising health and performance, and an examination of Olympic sports played in potentially hot environmental conditions. In the first section the book examines how heat stress effects performance by outlining the basics of thermoregulation and how these responses impact on cardiovascular, central nervous system, and skeletal muscle function. It also outlines the pathophysiology and treatment of exertional heat illness, as well as the role of hydration status during exercise in the heat. Thereafter, countermeasures (e.g. cooling and heat acclimation) are covered and an explanation as to how they may aid in decreasing the incidence of heat illness and minimise the impairment in performance is provided. A novel and particular feature of the book is its inclusion of sport-specific chapters in which the influence of heat stress on performance and health is described, as well as strategies and policies adopted by the governing bodies in trying to offset the deleterious role of thermal strain. Given the breadth and scope of the sections, the book will be a reference guide for clinicians, practitioners, coaches, athletes, researchers, and students.

    Description:

    This textbook provides a comprehensive, yet practically orientated overview of classic and novel sports cardiology topics, based on current evidence, guidelines, recommendations and expert experience. Numerous publications have provided guidance to these issues, but it has become increasingly difficult for both students and doctors to obtain a thorough, but practicable overview for optimal clinical care of athletes and patients. This book is intended as an educational work, filling the large gaps that are still present in the current educational guidelines for medical students and cardiology trainees.  Textbook of Sports and Exercise Cardiology differs from other sports cardiology books by focusing on clear, practical recommendations based on the latest evidence, primarily targeting those who seek professional background information and education that can easily be transferred into everyday care.

    Since it was introduced less than 100 years ago, analysis of the circulatory response to exercise as a measure of cardiac function has undergone remarkable development. Most recently this approach has incorporated the burgeoning technology of the last half of the 20th century to meet the physiological and diagnostic needs of scientist and clinicians. The ease of administration, economy and abundant data that characterize exercise testing for its relative staying power as the most frequently utilized noninvasive method of cardiovascular evaluation. The basic modalities of exercise electrocardiography of treadmill and bicycle have been extended by noninvasive cardiac imaging techniques, including scintigraphy and echocardiography, that have provided new insights in myocardial function during exertion and pharmacologic stress. At the same time, traditional exercise electrocardiography has also been refined by innovations that have broadened its applications. Exercise Testing: Current Concepts and Recent Advances affords the reader a state-of-the-art presentation of the diverse and expanding methods of exercise testing and their roles in patient management. The contributors to this volume include individuals who have made seminal contributions to the field during the last several decades. Indeed, it is legitimate to designate this group as a `Who's Who of Exercise Testing'. It is our hope that this book will enhance the reader's understanding of contemporary methods of exercise testing, as well as provide a glimpse into future directions of this science, that this knowledge is applied to optimal diagnosis and management of our patients.

    Description:

    This book describes in detail the specific aspects of ECG during childhood and adolescence, pursuing an accessible, didactic and easy-to-read approach. Instructive, self-contained and intelligently written, it succeeds in making this diagnostic tool, the interpretation of which is especially complex in younger patients, more comprehensible, while also offering a sound and extensive reference guide for all those who diagnose young patients with electrocardiography.  Though ECG produces a relatively simple set of readings, its interpretation and diagnosis are complex. If misinterpreted, a “butterfly effect” of hidden, often neglected heart signals can lead to important and sometimes devastating consequences. Featuring an exceptionally wide range of ECG recordings and examples, the volume sheds new light on the importance of electrophysiological examinations for patients still in their developmental years and provides advice on the use of ECG in connection with recent regulations on the participation of children, adolescents and young athletes in sports. Thanks to the variety of scenarios described, from the most frequent to the most insidious, this work will appeal to a broad readership, from cardiologists and pediatricians to family physicians, anesthesiologists, doctors in sports medicine, students and nurses.

    Description:

    Basic Transesophageal and Critical Care Ultrasound provides an overview of transesophageal ultrasound of the heart, lung, and upper abdomen as well as basic ultrasound of the brain, lung, heart, abdomen, and vascular system. Ultrasound-guided procedures commonly used in critically ill patients are also covered. With more than 400 clinical images, this well-illustrated text and its accompanying videos demonstrate new developments and challenges for those interested in mastering basic transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and bedside surface ultrasound. Each chapter is presented in an easy-to-read format that includes color diagrams and ultrasound images which optimize interactive learning for both novice and experienced clinicians. The book is divided into two parts. The first is dedicated to basic TEE while the second provides focused coverage of bedside ultrasound. The book also includes chapters on extra-cardiac TEE and ultrasound of the brain—unconventional areas that will become more important in the future as clinicians evaluate not only the etiology of hemodynamic instability but also the impact on multiple organs and systems such as the kidney, liver, splanchnic perfusion, and brain. This text is an invaluable resource to those preparing for the National Board of Echocardiography’s Examination of Special Competence in Basic Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography (PTEeXAM) and its equivalents outside the USA and Canada. In addition, it prepares physicians for the American College of Chest Physician’s critical care ultrasound certification. The contents follow the syllabus of the TEE basic echo exam to ensure complete coverage of a trainee's requirements. It also includes sample questions and two helpful mock exams. Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts in TEE, the book is a must-have for those in training and in practice.
