combines images and clearly written, concise text to make the complex concepts of hemodynamic monitoring easy to understand. Great for reference or review, it uses hundreds of detailed photographs, diagram, charts, and other visual aids to clarify essential cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology - and demonstrate how to confirm that lungs are getting enough oxygen and how well the heart is pumping. Chapters cover vascular access and the monitoring of arterial pressure, central venous pressure, pulmonary artery pressure, cardiac output, and tissue oxygenation, as well as minimally invasive hemodynamic monitoring and circulatory assist devices
There are numerous devices now utilized in remote monitoring, including ambulatory ECG recorders, implanted loop recorders, pacemakers, cardiac defibrillators, and cardiac resynchronization systems...outlines the strengths and weaknesses of existing technology; provides a framework for incorporating existing technology into clinical practice with emphasis on professional society guidelines; illustrates, through a multitude of real-world clinical vignettes how data retrieved remotely can be used to drive clinical decision making to positively affect patient outcome; highlights existing barriers that limit the widespread implementation of remote patient monitoring into practice; and proposes areas for development,
