A comprehensive guide to the methods of non–invasive cardiovascular monitoring currently available. The up to date information, illustrated with explanatory line diagrams, provides readers with all they need to know about basic technology and practical implementation in the clinical situation.
From the Back Cover
Monitoring cardiovascular function is a fundamental check on the patient’s wellbeing in the conscious or unconscious state. Time honoured methods such as the ECG and blood pressure monitoring have been joined by recent advanced technological methods that require a sound understanding on the part of the user. This book is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to all the methods currently available. It discusses both basic technology and practical implementation in the clinical situation. Chapters include:
- ECG monitoring, its scope and limitations
- No n–invasive blood pressure monitoring
- Oscillometry and oscillotonometry
- Problems and errors in blood pressure
- Measurement and instrumentation
- Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
- Home blood pressure monitoring
- Pulse monitoring
- Doppler ultrasound and echocardiography
- Electrical impedance monitoring
Each chapter contains an extensive literature search, and the final chapter covers the general rationale behind medical alarms and discusses their advantages and disadvantages.
The demand today is for non–invasive monitoring methods wherever possible, for patient comfort and to minimize risk and possible litigation. These non–invasive procedures are therefore becoming the most widely used by hospital doctors, general practitioners, hospital and community nurses and midwives, and by all those working in anaesthesia, intensive care and emergency care. The up–to–date information in this book, amply illustrated with explanatory line diagrams, will provide all required to perform these procedures with a reassuringly complete and clearly described reference.
