Reviews

“Provide a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of this important area of growth in our specialty. The authors highlight the need for perioperative physicians to acquire basic skills in echocardiography to monitor patients’ cardiac function, assess responsiveness to pharmacological or volume resuscitation interventions, and diagnose the causes of hemodynamic instability. This text provides an outstanding introduction for physicians in this area. … Essential Echocardiography is an enjoyable cover-to-cover read and should be recommended to any non-cardiac anesthesiologist or anesthesia trainee.” (Elizabeth Clarke Miller, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, January, 2017)
