Pathophysiology Risk factors and Management of Chronic Heart Failure Volume 1 Book Excerpt:

Chronic Heart Failure: Pathophysiology, Risk factors, and Mechanisms is the first of two separate but closely related volumes which aim to provide an inclusive overview on Chronic Heart Failure (CHF). This first volume is focused on the epidemiology, classification, molecular mechanisms, pathophysiology, causes, identification and interactions of heart failure. It will explain the uncertainties and issues in Heart Failure by helping readers understand the physiopathology of CHF in the light of behavioural risk factors. 2D and 3D speckle tracking echocardiography have been used to quantify regional alterations of longitudinal strain and area strain, through their polar projection, which allows a further evaluation of both the site and extent of myocardial damage. The analysis of strain can identify subclinical cardiac failure (myocyte remodelling) which is a major issue in CHF. Myocardial Strain, measure by speckle tracking echocardiography, is frequently attenuated in these conditions and can be utilized for the evaluation of disease progression and the effect of therapeutic interventions as well as prevention because it could be a manifestation of behavioural risk factors. These 2 separate volumes serves as essential references to both researchers and practicing clinicians, proposing novel methods of research by using behavioural and environmental risk factors as intervention agent, as well as discussing deficiency in the present approaches in management of HF and proposing new methods of early diagnosis and therapies for the clinical management of CHF. Includes a number new and controversial topics: Roles of both behavioural and nutritional risk factors in CHF; considering behavioural intervention which may change the remodelling, as well as nutrient supplementation or change of diet in preventing CHF or converting resistant HF in to HF responding to therapy; Evidence-based knowledge on CHF, with an emphasis on viewing CHF as a disease of the brain and contribution from other systems; Pre-Heart failure which can be prevented to restore normal cardiomyocyte function; Pathogenesis of HF in chronic kidney disease; 2D and 3D speckle tracking echocardiography Includes never-published tables and figures to aid understanding of the topics Contributions from international leading experts in the field, written with the aim of serving both researchers and practicing clinicians

Thyroid and Heart Failure Book Excerpt:

Both thyroid dysfunction and heart failure show a high prevalence in the adult population. Frequently, in clinical practice, a multidisciplinary approach is useful to optimize the management of patients with these conditions. Although there is no doubt regarding the close link between cardiovascular pathophysiology and thyroid homeostasis, our understanding of this association is far from being exhaustive. Thyroid hormone regulates the expression of cardiac-specific functional contractile and structural proteins and plays a pivotal role in modulating both diastolic and systolic function as well as peripheral vascular resistance. The close relationship between thyroid and heart dysfunction is strongly supported by recent evidence demonstrating that an altered thyroid profile is a negative prognostic predictor in patients with heart failure. The treatment of chronic heart failure, especially in advanced stages of the disease, continues to be an open and challenging field. The potential of novel thyroid hormone therapies that address the molecular biology of thyroid dysfunction and heart failure thus represents an attractive area of multidisciplinary scientific interest. This book is a readable, integrated, and highly up to date presentation of the clinical, pathophysiological, and basic science aspects of thyroid–heart failure interactions. It addresses a complex subject in an approach that targets a large audience of readers.

Cardiovascular Disease in the Elderly Book Excerpt:

A panel of clinicians, researchers, and leaders in the field review and discuss the latest findings on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of cardiovascular disease in the older patient. The authors explain the physiological changes associated with the normal aging process that may lead to the development of disease, to adverse consequences once disease develops, and which alter the risk-benefit equation for medical and other interventions designed to diagnose, assess, and treat cardiovascular disease. The focus is on particularly common syndromes in the elderly, including cardiac failure with normal ejection fraction, isolated systolic hypertension, and atrial fibrillation. Wherever possible, the authors take an evidence-based approach to recommendations and rely heavily on prospective clinical trials.

Chronic Heart Failure Book Excerpt:

Between 1-2% of the adult population have chronic heart failure, with 6-10% of people over the age of 65 years suffering from the disorder. While the age-adjusted incidence of chronic heart failure has remained stable over the last 20 years, its prevalence has increased with over one million cases in the United Kingdom alone. This practical pocketbook provides a guide for healthcare professionals - doctors, nurses and technical staff - who manage patients with chronic heart failure. Each chapter is written by a leader in that particular area of the treatment or investigation of chronic heart failure and provides a concise but comprehensive review of each area. As a whole the book provides a guide to aetiology, epidemiology, physiology and pathophysiology, and investigation and treatment of chronic heart failure close up. Further chapters address chronic heart failure with preserved systolic function and complex congenital causes of chronic heart failure. As chronic heart failure remains an often lethal disorder, one chapter focuses on the management of patients with advanced chronic heart failure with a section on end of life situations. Each chapter is able to 'stand alone' with key points at the beginning of each chapter and diagrams and flow charts to illustrate these key points.

Pathophysiology and Care Protocols for Nursing Management An Issue of Nursing Clinics E Book Book Excerpt:

Nursing is an evolving profession that requires continued knowledge updates in formulating a foundation for practice. In order to promote patient safety and satisfaction, it is imperative that nurses monitor publications and increase their knowledge base. Each patient is different; each care management situation requires an individualized plan of care. These require the nurse to develop a personal framework for practice that continually develops from this information. This mandates an evolving knowledge base which this edition will supply for nurses who work to deliver care that is research based and protocol driven. This issue of Nursing Clinics will be both timely and relevant as it will combine two clearly important topics for nurses in care management, pathophysiological updates as well as research based protocols that are important to continuity of validated evidence based care delivery. This will give nurses across organizations the opportunity to see care from a perspective of patient wholeness and not truncate care in order to address total components. With care reimbursement dependent on outcomes, it is important for the nurse to see care as a continuum and not finite. This issue will give nurses this perspective.
