Cardiac CT Angiography Manual

by Robert Pelberg

Cardiac CT angiography (CTA) is a rapidly growing imaging modality that provides vital diagnostic information. Consequently, interest in training for this new modality is increasing exponentially, but there are few practical books dedicated to the topic and education of cardiologists in the technique.

The primary purpose of the Cardiac CT Angiography Manual is to educate medical professionals in all relevant aspects of cardiac CTA and calcium scoring in a simple, practical and concise manner. In addition, many difficult concepts that make learning cardiac CTA difficult are simplified and put into context. After reading this work, the reader will be taken from novice level to a level that will allow him or her to begin clinical training experiences and will serve as a reference and review for those who have already completed training.

Designed for residents and fellows in cardiology and radiology, this work makes ‘difficult to understand’ concepts easy to comprehend with the aid of simple, intuitive diagrams. Concepts and terminology are completely and simply defined and explained. The book also compiles an extensive amount of relevant and difficult to obtain information in one place to serve not only as a simple educational tool but also as a reference once the reader is fully trained in using cardiac CTA.

The Neuropharmacology of Nicotine Dependence

by David JK Balfour, Marcus R. Munafo

The primary purpose of this book and its companion volume The Behavioral Genetics of Nicotine and Tobacco is to explore the ways in which recent studies on nicotine and its role in tobacco addiction have opened our eyes to the psychopharmacological properties of this unique and fascinating drug. While The Behavioral Genetics of Nicotine and Tobacco considers the molecular and genetic factors which influence behavioral responses to nicotine and how these may impact on the role of nicotine in tobacco dependence, the present book focuses on the complex neural and psychological mechanisms that mediate nicotine dependence in experimental animal models and their relationship to tobacco addiction in humans.

These volumes will provide readers a contemporary overview of current research on nicotine psychopharmacology and its role in tobacco dependence from leaders in this field of researchand will hopefully prove valuable to those who are developing their own research programmes in this important topic.

Pre Hospital Care Pearls & Pitfalls Peter T. Pons
Today’s prehospital care provider will be confronted with a wide variety of medical and traumatic emergencies, will need to possess a strong foundation of medical knowledge, and will be using a large armamentarium of interventions and treatments. It is with this in mind that we have prepared this book. Prehospital Care-Pearls and Pitfalls, is a unique, stimulating, and easy-to-read way, provide practical information applicable to the prehospital setting and to help the prehospital emergency care provider be prepared to manage the myriad of emergency and non-emergency situations that he or she will be called upon to assist.

The past four decades have seen a remarkable evolution in the delivery of prehospital care. Where once the only therapy available for an out-of-hospital emergency medical situation was a ride to the hospital at a speed limited only by the vehicle you were in and the driving conditions at the time, now much of the interventional capability of the emergency department has been moved into an ambulance staffed with highly trained individuals who can bring to the patient the sophisticated medical care needed at the point of first contact with the health care delivery system.
