Fundamental and Clinical Cardiology #12: Prevention of Venous Thromboembolismby Samuel Z Goldhaber
Synopses & Reviews
Covers all available mechanical and pharmacological measures to prevent venus thromboembolism. The book stresses the cost-effectiveness of prophylaxis over the diagnosis and treatment and highlights the importance of the nurse-physician team.
Book News Annotation:
Because it is the third most common cardiovascular disease (after acute ischemic syndromes and stroke), and because it is difficult to diagnose, expensive to treat, and sometimes fatal despite therapy, techniques for preventing venous thromboembolism are particularly important. Such prevention is increasingly being recognized as a mandatory, not optional, part of every hospitalized patient's health care strategy. Strategies and techniques presented here are valuable to physicians involved in surgery, gynecology, obstetrics, or internal medicine; to radiologists and pathologists; and to administrators involved in health care policy.
