About this book

This book combines valid physiology and treatment strategies with the institutional experience of one of the leading German pediatric heart centers. It is intended as a pragmatic guide, focusing on daily practice and bedside medicine: straightforward, easy to implement, and results-oriented. It offers readers a profound understanding of intensive care, with a specific focus on organ systems, their interactions, and the effect of life support technologies, pursuing a comprehensive approach to congenital heart defects and therapies, including pitfalls and solutions. The target group is extended towards pediatric cardiologists and anesthesiologists by integrating chapters on the systematic analysis of hemodynamics and anatomy, diagnostics and treatment of congenital heart defects, plus a chapter on modern anesthesiology during heart operations with a focus on early extubation that minimizes on-pump and medication trauma. As such, the book offers a pragmatic and clinically oriented guide for physicians with advanced experience and expertise in (cardiac) intensive and intermediate care, as well as beginners and junior physicians.

Reviews

“A Practical Handbook on Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Therapy is recommended to health professionals with a strong interest in mastering the underlying principles that affect pediatric cardiac critical care management. The handbook could serve as an excellent resource for pediatric residents, fellows, and staff.” (Stefanie Smulski, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 66, 2019)
“The problem-oriented approach of this book is what a busy clinician is looking for. … If you are a busy clinician taking care of children or adults with congenital heart disease and if you have an open mind and are willing to ‘think beyond,’ … this book is for you.” (Elena Ashikhmina, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 129 (2), August, 2019)
