About this book

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a valuable diagnostic modality now routinely used during cardiac surgery and in the intensive care unit.  Increasingly, anesthesiologists trained in TEE provide the service in both settings where they face the challenge of integrating numerous current TEE guidelines into day-to-day practice.  Perioperative Two-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography:  A Practical Handbook has been designed to be a concise, portable guide for using TEE to recognize cardiac pathology during the perioperative period. 

This compact guide has a diverse appeal for anesthesiologists, cardiac surgeons, and cardiologists desiring comprehensive up-to-date echocardiographic information at their fingertips.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book, from the Department of Anesthesia in Toronto, contains 11 chapters on transoesophageal echocardiography … . The book makes good use of illustrations, with many echocardiographic images which have been edited carefully for size and clarity. … this handbook contains a lot of helpful information of use to both the novice and established peri-operative echocardiographers. It is attractive, very readable, portable, and likely to be carried ubiquitously. … I would recommend this book without reservations, and congratulate the author.” (A. Ng, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 109 (2), 2012)

“With more than 450 clinical images and illustrations, including three-dimensional TEE images, this work is a visual success. The quality and depth of information incorporated into such a succinct package makes this text quite a tour de force. ... designed as an on-the-spot reference for echocardiographers whose experience ranges from novice to expert. ... this text is a welcome and practical addition to the TEE literature.” (Étienne de Médicis, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Vol. 59, 2012)
