The Practice of Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography provides over 100 teaching cases ranging from the most common to the most challenging. Each case is succinctly presented in an easy-to-read question-answer, self-test format comprised of three printed pages of text and echo images. Echocardiography technique, interpretation, and case management are emphasized by internationally recognized experts in the field.
The cases cover the gamut of clinical problems, as well as challenges related to image optimization and artifacts. The versatility of TEE is represented by 2-D, 3-D, color flow and spectral Doppler, tissue Doppler imaging, and quantitative assessments of volumes, pressures, and the severity of valvular pathologies.
A companion website contains the fully searchable text plus echocardiographic video clips for each case.

Sharing the distinguished reputation of its companion text, Clinical Anesthesia, Seventh Edition, this completely revised edition of Review of Clinical Anesthesia provides an effective and comprehensive review in preparation of written and oral exams.
With the intense volume of information available today, trying to keep up with what’s new and relevant can overwhelm students and professionals alike. This text gives you the means to stop and review what you’ve learned with a sense of context and perspective. The multiple-choice questions in this text can be used as a means of self-assessment before taking a written examination. Additionally, the book may be of even greater benefit if it is incorporated throughout one’s studies; a pretest will help the novice as well as the expert focus his or her reading; a post-test will allow one to assess self-mastery of the most relevant material.
