Cardiology is becoming an increasingly complex field understood by only a select group of medical specialists. This publication demystifies many difficult topics in cardiology and cardiac catheterization, commencing with the basics of laboratory instrumentation and technology and progressing to a comprehensive review of new and established interventions. Unlike other publications that are directed mainly towards clinicians, this text is specifically written to assist other medical professionals, such as nurses, technicians and scientific staff. Medical staff will find this a valuable introduction to an area that can be intimidating for a novice. Containing vital information not readily available in standard medical literature, it is an indispensable reference text throughout the hands-on instruction period. Technicians will benefit from detailed explanations of cardiac physiology and waveform analysis, with particular emphasis on ischemia, thrombosis and infarction. Nursing professionals are given specific information on patient management and post-procedural care with valuable information on infection control procedures and the pharmacology of cardiac drugs.
