A practical, full-color guide with videos, Practical Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography, 2nd Edition, by Drs. David Sidebotham, Alan F. Merry, Malcolm E. Leggett, and Mark L. Edwards, will help improve your diagnosis and monitoring of perioperative cardiac patients. Reflecting five years of new research and clinical data in TEE, the book captures the latest developments in the field, and new chapters on epiaortic and 3D echocardiography, echocardiography in the ICU, and echocardiography for adult congenital heart disease have been added. The videos on DVD demonstrate normal and pathologic findings in real time. The result is an outstanding tool for certification preparation and clinical practice.
