This is the only book on the market that specifically addresses cardiac blood flow findings, reviewing blood pressure tracings collected from the cardiac catheterization lab on all aspects of cardiovascular disease, as well as normal cardiac function. This edition includes revised and updated chapters on mitral stenosis and pulse alterations, low-gradient aortic valve stenosis, pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty, coronary hemodynamics for angioplasty and stenting after myocardial infarction, and more. It is an indispensable tool for physicians, nurses, and students measuring and interpreting cardiac waveforms in cardiac diagnosis and monitoring.
