WSU pediatricians publish new book 'Cardiac Emergencies in Children'

A new book written and edited by a cadre of Wayne State University School of Medicine pediatricians, along with colleagues from other universities, has just been released.

"Cardiac Emergencies in Children: A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Management," is "primarily for pediatric and adult emergency room physicians, primary care providers, hospitalists, and nurses. It will also be useful for critical care specialists, cardiologists and trainees at all levels," the editors said.

The 394-page hardcover edition published by Springer Publishing Co. discusses the effects of surgery on hemodynamics and how to manage those effects, as well as the daily challenges faced by physicians, including identifying a child with heart disease, interpreting chest radiographs, electrocardiograms and laboratory findings, and beginning appropriate therapies.

"This text is unique in its targeted readership, scope of content, and level of detail," Bradley Fuhrman, M.D., physician-in-chief of El Paso's Children's Hospital, writes in the book's forward. "It is both archival and educational. It can be used both to launch further literature enquiry and to quickly inform in a crisis. It is both problem oriented and diagnostically categorized. It teaches both what to do and what not to do."
