Advanced critical care echocardiography brings many benefits to critical care medicine. For those wishing to practice echo at a more advance level, it is necessary to master the theoretical aspects. The Oxford Textbook of Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography provides a physiological and evidence-based reference guide to the principles and techniques of advanced echocardiography. Both transoesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography are addressed and over 300 videos, 470 figures and, 140 mcqs are included making this an ideal adjunct for courses for intensivists.

The foundations of advanced echocardiography are outlined before specific assessment methods of critical care echo are provided. In reality, most critically ill patients do not suffer only one clinical problem so a section on integrated techniques explains how to answer both common and unexpected critical care questions. Finally the re use of echocardiography in critical care is explored. Important reference values for clinical use can be accessed easily in the appendices.

The Oxford Textbook of Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography includes access to online-only content, consisting of videos, figures and multiple choice questions that can be used to reinforce understanding. This online material can be accessed by activating your unique access code.

Authored by an international team of expert practitioners this textbook reflects the International Consensus Statement on Training Standards for Advanced Critical Care Echocardiography. Designed for trainees and consultants, this resource provides comprehensive and integrated coverage of all aspects of advanced critical care echo.

This is an excellent introduction to a technology designed to provide real-time answers to cardiopulmonary performance in the ICU. A particular strength is effective presentation of physiologic principles underlying the imaging techniques utilized.

Notă biografică

Anthony McLean. BSc(Hons),MBChB (Otago), MD, FRACP, FCSANZ, FCICM, MRACMA. Head of Nepean Intensive Care Medicine and Professor with the University of Sydney, his research background ranges from critical care echocardiography and heart failure to genomics of sepsis in critically ill patients. An ardent educator in critical care echocardiography he is involved in regular basic and advanced workshops, in addition to haemodynamic workshops, both nationally andinternationally. A lead clinician of both a busy Intensive Care Unit and medium sized echocardiography laboratory performing over 4500 studies annually, this mix has led to a range of research studies relevant to the haemodynamic unstable patient population. He leads a team of enthusiastic and dedicatedclinicians pushing the boundaries of the use of echocardiography in the critical care setting.Stephen Huang received his PhD in Physiology and is a Professor at the University of Sydney Medical School. He works at the Nepean Hospital Intensive Care Unit and is an accredited echocardiographer. He has 20 years of experience in teaching critical care echocardiography and is a renowned teacher and trainer worldwide. He is the co-author of Critical Care Ultrasound Manual, a popular basic critical care ultrasound textbook. Stephen's research interest is in critical care echocardiographyand haemodynamics, and has published numerous papers in the field.Andrew Hilton is Intensive Care Specialist and Deputy Director Austin ICU, Melbourne, Australia. He has over 25 years experience in perioperative and critical care echocardiography, including extensive experience in teaching echocardiography in the critical care environment. Over this time, he has been involved in many echocardiography workshops, courses and forums, and related research. He is particularly interested in "echo-physiology" and translating the rigor and methods of traditionalcardiology based echocardiography to the fluid and dynamic critical care context. Other interests include echocardiographic assessment and guided treatment of acute heart failure, and optimisation of extracorporeal circulatory support. He is also an examiner for the Diploma of Diagnostic Ultrasound(Critical Care) for the Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine.
