Congenital Diseases of the Heart

£99.99

Product description

Congenital Diseases of the Heart: Clinical-Physiological Considerations, Fully Revised and Updated Second Edition represents the accumulated experiences of the author. Dr. Abraham M. Rudolph is recognized internationally as a leading contributor in the field of Pediatric Cardiology. Since the publication of the book's first edition in 1974, remarkable achievements in diagnostic and therapeutic techniques have been attained, making possible and necessary this thorough update of the work. A uniquely important contribution of this new edition is the discussion of the hemodynamic and clinical features and their impact at various stages of development-from fetus to neonate to infant to child and adolescent. Due to the advent of prenatal ultrasound and Doppler flow studies, concepts of the influence of congenital cardiac lesions that were once based largely on conjecture can now be measured, compared, and quantified. The book discusses congenital cardiac disorders from the perspective of the abnormal hemodynamics of the circulation, reviewing current concepts as well as controversial issues (such as the advisability of procedures for alleviating cardiac lesions in utero). The physiology of the fetal normal circulation is presented and the effects of congenital cardiac lesions are discussed with particular reference to the interactions between the lesions and fetal cardiovascular development. A list of carefully selected references offers further guidance to relevant literature. Pediatric cardiologists, neonatologists, and pediatric intensive care physicians, as well as clinicians treating adult patients with congenital heart diseases, will find this updated classic to be useful, informative, and enlightening.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
