Beschreibung

Over the past ten years, cardiac transplantation has evolved from an exper imental procedure performed in a handful of university centers to a viable therapeutic modality now performed in more than 150 centers worldwide. The complexity of the procedure, the changing immunosuppressive re gimes, and the follow-up care have necessitated a multidisciplinary ap proach involving a variety of medical, nursing, and social sciences special ties and subspecialties. In addition, health care trainees and referring physicians are increasingly becoming involved in the care of the cardiac transplant recipient. This book does not attempt to be a comprehensive treatise on cardiac transplantation; rather, we hope that it will serve as a manual and guideline for all health professionals involved in cardiac trans plantation.

Klappentext

This multi-disciplinary approach to cardiac transplantation reflects the many different aspects of the medical, nursing and social sciences that come into play. It contains practical information for all members of the transplantation team - from surgeon to resident to nurse. The clinical information includes the protocols developed at the Oregon Health Sciences Center. The literature on which their experience is based is also reviewed. The chapters give an overview of aspects such as ventricular assistance, recipient/donor selection, endomyocardial biopsy, immuno-suppressive regimes, and follow-up care. The book does not attempt to be a comprehensive treatise on surgical techniques; instead it is a clear and understandable manual for all medical professionals dealing with the cardiac transplant patient.
