About this book

The treatment of pediatric patients with congenital or acquired cardiac disease remains an important challenge for physicians in charge of these patients. The challenge to practitioners is complex given that most drugs used in this field are either unlicensed or off-label and that the patient population is a heterogeneous group not only in pathologies but also in size, weight and metabolism. Currently, doctors must rely on the available pharmacological knowledge, the rare clinical trials and case series and most of all on the international cumulative clinical experience.

The Handbook of Pediatric Cardiovascular Drugs provides the health care practitioner with general clinical and practical guidelines regarding the use of pediatric cardiovascular drugs. It reviews basic pediatric cardiovascular principles and satisfies the need for a pocket reference handbook tailored to meet the daily challenges of practitioners caring for pediatric cardiac patients.

This handbook is not intended to provide an extensive review of all cardiovascular medications, but compiles the necessary information required to assist the practitioner involved in the care of pediatric patients with heart disease in their day-to-day practice. Consequently, it will be helpful for physicans, fellows, residents, pharmacists, and nurses in the multiple disciplines of anesthesia, pediatrics, critical care, cardiology, cardiac surgery and cardiac intensive care.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Handbook of Pediatric Cardiovascular Drugs … may be a book that those individuals who touch pediatric patients with cardiovascular disease may want to take a close look at. … will be most valuable for the many adjunct members of the healthcare team who are not terribly familiar with the terrain covered with this book. … For those healthcare workers who like a book in their pocket rather than using on-line sources for their information, this handbook will serve as a fine addition to one’s collection." (Charles L. Schleien, Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, Vol 9 (6), 2008)
