A Multidisciplinary Approach to Perinatal Cardiology Volume 2
Recent developments in diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of cardiac and neonatal issues have advanced the care of the newborn. In order to achieve excellence in cardiac care, however, close interaction and collaboration of the pediatric cardiologists with neonatologists, pediatricians, general/family practitioners (who care for children), anesthesiologists, cardiac surgeons, pediatric cardiac intensivists, and other subspecialty pediatricians is mandatory. This book provides the reader with up-to-date, evidence-based information in three major areas of neonatology and prenatal and neonatal cardiology. First, it offers an overview of advances in the disciplines of neonatology, prenatal and neonatal cardiology, and neonatal cardiac surgery in making early diagnosis and offering treatment options. Secondly, it presents a multidisciplinary approach to managing infants with congenital heart defects. Finally, it provides evidence-based therapeutic approaches to successfully treat the fetus and the newborn with important neonatal issues and congenital cardiac lesions.
This second volume specifically explores issues related to individual cardiac defects, cardiomyopathies, and hypertension and presents a summary and conclusions of both volumes.
