Current Approach to Heart Failure 2017 pdf
Why do we need another heart failure (HF) book in the context of currently abundant
the literature on the subject?
At present, HF prevalence is still high, while its morbidity and mortality are highly dependent on the HF type as well as the access to the advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. The pathophysiology is better understood, and there is a trend for a better characterization of Heart Failure subtypes. Furthermore, the 2017 guidelines introduce a new term for patients with HF and a left ventricular ejection fraction that ranges from 40 to 49 %—HF with mid-range ejection fraction— an entity which needs to be better characterized by future research.Current Approach to Heart Failure 2017 pdf provides the essential knowledge and current treatment protocol for the heart failure
The importance of the right ventricle in Heart Failure had been studied extensively in the last years. That is why author dedicated two chapters in Current Approach to Heart Failure 2017 pdf which detail state of the art regarding the physiology, anatomy, and the assessment of the right ventricle as well as the pathophysiology and treatment of right heart failure. Similarly, a separate is dedicated to the left atrium assessment in Heart Failure patients. We emphasize through one of the chapters that the complete HF diagnosis is made through multimodality imaging.
Regarding HF treatment, this Current Approach to Heart Failure 2017 pdf book is offering separate chapters related to pharmacological treatment, cardiac resynchronization, mechanical circulatory support, gene therapy, heart transplant, and rehabilitation. Comorbidities such as iron deficiency and electrolytes and kidney imbalances are addressed in separate chapters.
Special populations such as oncologic patients are given a great importance, since the awareness of HF in this category of patients is increasing. Author assist to rapidly developing strategies in the field of Heart Failure, which fundamentally help in better prognostication and management of HF patients. This is the reason for which author decided to gather the very new knowledge on the topic in this Current Approach to Heart Failure 2017 pdf book.
Accordingly, this book is intended to offer quickly the updated information necessary for the modern, correct management of Heart Failure patients. The information is delivered by professionals with a rich experience on each topic. This way, this Current Approach to Heart Failure 2017 pdf book is a combination of evidence-based medicine and personal experience, a link between guidelines and clinical practice.
This current Approach to Heart Failure 2017 pdf is a useful tool for professionals from all the fields related to HF: noninvasive cardiology, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology and cardiovascular imaging, cardiac surgery, internal medicine, nephrology, or anesthesiology.
