With an editorial team of leading experts from the American College of Emergency Physicians and the American Heart Association, this book is the first complete, clinically oriented reference textbook in emergency cardiovascular care and CPR. The book translates bench research to the clinician's bedside needs and addresses end-of-life issues. The content is appropriate for a large audience including early caregivers, emergency department and CCU nurses, students, residents, fellows, and hospitalists responsible for cardiovascular emergency situations. A companion Website will include the fully searchable text, instructional videos produced by the AHA, and links to ACC, AHA, ASE, ACEP, and ILCOR guidelines and policy statements. =Review: "This book outlines the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and management of each topic. Updated ACC/AHA and ACEP guidelines provide the framework for the recommendations and topics are presented in organized, easy-to-follow algorithms and tables." Doody's Title review: Omar Shams, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation) "The Textbook of Emergency Cardiac Care and CPR is a comprehensive reference source providing a bench-to-bedside approach....[It] is the first textbook about an exceedingly important, timely, and rapidly changing subject.
