Echocardiography is the most powerful and cost-effective imaging technique for assessing patients suffering from unstable cardiovascular diseases. This didactically structured third edition of Emergency Echocardiography contains fully rewritten chapters by well-known, internationally recognized contributors. It includes new chapters on echo-guided patient management in the ICU, lung ultrasound, and complications of percutaneous interventions. Special attention is given to Focus Cardiac Ultrasound (FoCUS) in emergency settings. The book uses over 600 video loops of illustrative cases to interest a wide readership of all medical professionals involved in diagnostics and treatment of emergency cardiovascular patients.
