This book provides a concise guide to the management of common cardiac emergencies including, in particular, the management of a full cardiorespiratory arrest. As well as dealing with cardiac arrest associated with ischemic heart disease, details are given of the management of cardiac arrest from less common causes, including asthma, pulmonary embolism, anaphylaxis and drug overdose. A chapter on pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation, written by Dr. David Zideman, is also included. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation in a hospital is a team task, and a description of how the team should be organized is given, together with the recommended allocation of roles to individual team members. Considerable attention is given to the practical management of acute myocardial infarction as its early recognition has become even more important with the advent of thrombolysis. The use of various thrombolytic agents is also discussed. This book will be valuable to doctors and nurses working in emergency rooms as well as general medicine, and to paramedics. It will also be useful to all those certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.Skinner, David V. is the author of 'CardioPulmonary Resuscitation' with ISBN 9780192622860 and ISBN 0192622862.
