About The Author

Ricardo A. Munoz

This extensively revised new edition comprehensively reviews the medical and surgical management of the acutely-ill child with congenital and acquired cardiac disease. It enables the reader to gain a thorough understanding of basic and practical concepts of anatomy, pathophysiology, surgical techniques and peri-operative management in this group of patients. Extensively revised chapters cover the management of cardiac patients on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, hemofiltration, and plasma exchange. New topics covered include the use of pharmaceuticals in cardiac intensive care, the implications of interventional cardiology in pediatric intensive care and ventricular assist devices. Practically relevant guidelines are also included for cardiovascular nurses.
