Interpreting an ECG correctly and working out what to do next can seem like a daunting task to the non-specialist, yet it is a skill that will be invaluable to any doctor, nurse, or paramedic when evaluating the condition of a patient. Making Sense of the ECG has been written specifically with this in mind, and will help the student and more experienced healthcare practitioner to identify and answer crucial questions, including: Are these abnormalities significant? How to I distinguish between VT and SVT? Has the patient had a myocardial infarction? How do I measure the QT interval? Should I refer this patient to a cardiologist? This practical, easy-to-read and easy-to-remember guide to the ECG as a tool for diagnosis and management has been fully updated in its fourth edition to reflect the latest guidelines.

The practice of clinical medicine is inextricably linked with the need for moral values and ethical principles. The study of medical ethics is, therefore, rightly assuming an increasingly significant place in undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses and in allied health curricula. Making Sense of Medical Ethics offers a no-nonsense introduction to the principles of medial ethics, as applied to the everyday care of patients, the development of novel therapies and the undertaking of pioneering basic medical research. Written from a practical rather than a philosophical perspective, the authors call upon their extensive experience of clinical practice, research and teaching to illustrate how ethical principles can be applied in different 'real-life' situations. Making Sense of Medical Ethics encourages readers to understand the principles of medical ethics as they apply to clinical practice; explore and evaluate common misconceptions; consider the ethics underlying any medical decision; and as a result, to realize that a good appreciation of medical ethics will help them to practise more effectively in the future.

Sitting an accreditation examination is a daunting prospect for many trainee echocardiographers. And with an increasing drive for the accreditation of echocardiography laboratories and individual echocardiographers, there is a need for an all-encompassing revision aid for those seeking accreditation. The editors of this unique book have produced the only echocardiography revision aid based on the syllabus and format of the British Society of Echocardiography (BSE) national echocardiography accreditation examination and similar examinations administered across Europe. Written by BSE accredited members, fully endorsed by the BSE, and with a foreword by BSE past-president, DR. Simon Ray, this indispensable guide provides a valuable insight into how echocardiography accreditation exams are structured. Crucially, to support students with the more challenging video section of the exam, a companion website provides video cases, and with clear and concisely-structured explanations to all questions, this is an essential tool for anyone preparing to sit an echocardiography examination.

Foetal echocardiography is a test used to diagnose cardiac conditions in the foetal stage. Congenital heart disease is a leading cause of infant mortality, and structural abnormalities of the foetal heart are often missed. The 160+ full colour images in this Atlas will help obstetricians, gynaecologists and cardiologists differentiate between what is normal and what is abnormal from case to case. The second edition of The Atlas of Fetal Echocardiography explains the concepts of foetal cardiac imaging in a simple and well structured manner. The book consists of 15 chapters, with key points detailed at the end of each section. The lucid language and vivid illustrations of this new edition make each topic easy to understand, from basic embryology to the diagnosis of structural defects. Full pictorial explanations of new developments in the field of foetal heart examination and a supplementary DVD, further enhance this book.
