This book provides a guide for the management of patients with cardiovascular emergencies in the ER. It covers a broad range of the most important and frequent acute cardiovascular events including coronary syndromes, aortic syndromes, pulmonary embolism, and left heart failure. Pragmatic in nature, chapters discuss frequent clinical presentations in a thorough fashion while emphasizing a practical and concise approach to diagnosis and treatment. In addition, the book explores how new knowledge and technological advances are improving the quality of patient care in the emergency room, highlighting technological advances in the use of pharmacotherapy, biomarkers, and imaging techniques such as X-ray, echocardiography, CT, MRI, and nuclear. Cardiology in the ER: A Practical Guide is an essential resource for physicians and related professionals, residents, and fellows in cardiology, emergency medicine, intensive and critical care, and internal medicine.
