About this book

The concepts of acute coronary care are changing so rapidly that it is appropriate that the volume ACUTE CORONARY CARE: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE, published early in 1985, would have yearly updates. The process of rapid production of camera-ready manuscripts has added new capability to the exchange of information. ACUTE CORONARY CARE 1986 is the first of a series of yearly updates in this important area of cardiology. Materials published during the fall of 1984, including abstracts for the November American Heart Association meetings were reviewed by the editors to identify the areas of new information and the authors making important contri­ butions. Manuscripts were completed and edited during the spring of 1985 and the final camera-ready versions were delivered to Martinus Nijhoff by mid-July. The broad area of coronary care is divided into its five time sectors: Pre-hospital, Post-admission, Coronary Care Unit, Pre-discharge, and Conva­ lescent. As patients are more frequently encountered in the pre-hospital phase, it has become evident that alterations in the autonomic nervous system have a great impact on the clinical situation. The chapter by Ron Victor emphasizes the important interactions between the nervous system and the cardiovascular system in this critical situation.

Reviews

`A comprehensive text on acute coronary care represents a significant event for those active in the field. ... The pertinent reference lists at the end of each chapter add obvious value for those interested in enlarging and deepening their basic knowledge of the topic. ... This is an up-to-date, well-conceived, and well-balanced book that will be of interest not only to those who work in CCU's but also to those who take care of patients with coronary artery diseases.'
Journal of the American Medical Association, 255:4 (1986)
