    Summary

    Respiratory problems are the commonest cause of acute admission to hospital. A variety of diagnostic investigations are required, both for acute and clinic assessment. Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition familiarises both trainees and more experienced clinicians with the interpretation of a range of respiratory parameters. It places lung function in a clinical context using real-life examples and provides invaluable hands-on guidance.

    For this second edition Consultant Respiratory Physician Jonathan Dakin and Consultant Anaesthetist Elena Kourteli are joined by Mark Mottershaw, Chief Respiratory Physiologist from Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, all contributing a broad range of expertise and perspectives. Together they have updated the book throughout and added new chapters including an algorithm for interpretation of pulmonary function tests, exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and cardiopulmonary exercise testing.

    The text offers a clear explanation of the concepts which students find difficult, including:

       

    • The basis of obstructive and restrictive defects
    •  

    • Pattern recognition of the flow volume loop
    •  

    • Differences between TLCO and KCO
    •  

    • Assessment of oxygenation using PO2 and SO2
    •  

    • The basis of Type 1 and type 2 respiratory failure
    •  

    • Distinguishing respiratory and metabolic acidosis
    •  

    • The relationship between sleep and respiratory failure

    The information is presented in an accessible way, suitable for any who seek only a grounding in spirometry or blood gases, but also sufficiently comprehensive for those completing specialist training in general or respiratory medicine.

    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.

    • Discusses the bioengineering features and heart function models in cardiology
    • Covers left ventricular wall stress, cardiac contractility, myocardial fibers’ contraction causing generation of systolic pressure
    • Develops the theory of ECG and vector cardiogram with medical applications, heartrate variability integrated index for more accurate detection of arrhythmias
    • Explains LV perfusion, and modeling of intra-LV flow, aortic pulse wave propagation, coronary blood flow and coronary bypass surgery design

    Summary

    Cardiology Science and Technology comprehensively deals with the science and biomedical engineering formulations of cardiology. As a textbook, it addresses the teaching, research, and clinical aspects of cardiovascular medical engineering and computational cardiology.

    The books consists of two sections. The first section deals with left ventricular (LV) wall stress, cardiac contractility, ventricular remodeling, active wall stress and systolic pressure generation, and vector cardiogram characteristics, with applications in cardiology. The second section covers ECG signal analysis for arrhythmias detection, LV pumping (intra-LV, aortic and coronary flow) characteristics, and coronary bypass surgery design, with applications in cardiology and cardiac surgery.

    This book is like an exciting train ride through the heart and into blood flows within its chamber, the coronary tree, the aorta, and finally into coronary flow and bypass grafting. The train starts from the heart’s central station and journeys through exciting places of heart wall stresses, cardiac contractility measures to characterize heart failure, and active stress generation to develop systolic heart pressure. We learn about cardiomyopathic heart remodeling and its surgical ventricular restoration, theory of ECG and vector cardiogram with medical applications, and heart rate variability signal processing to detect cardiac arrhythmias.

    In the heart chamber, we witness the amazing intricate intra-ventricular flow patterns. Then, we study pressure pulse wave propagation into the aorta, determination of pulse wave velocity and arterial elasticity as a measure of arteriosclerosis. We climb into the mountainous coronary terrain and look at the fascinating scenery of coronary flows and myocardial perfusion that governs cardiac contractility. Finally, we arrive at coronary bypass grafting and witness the new sequential anastomosis design for enhanced patency.

    This fascinating journey helps us to fully appreciate cardiology from the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics viewpoint. The book represents what can be termed as computational cardiology, and hence belongs to the emerging field of computational medicine.

    Summary

    In recent years, the growth in endovascular procedures has meant that vascular trainees may not gain sufficient experience to be competent in open vascular reconstructions following completion of their training. At the same time many senior surgeons have somewhat limited experience of endovascular techniques. This book will assist junior and senior surgeons and trainees in performing all types of vascular reconstructions. A key feature of the book is its clear illustrations, accompanied by pertinent case examples from vascular registries, so that readers can perform these operations with clear understanding of anatomical exposure and dissection, simplifying the conduct of the procedure.
