Customer Reviews
Tratado de referencia en el campo de la medicina cardiovascular basado en los cambios que se han producido en la última década. Entre ellos se incluye el uso de la angiografía TC multidetectora; el uso rutinario de endoprótesis vasculares con liberación de fármacos por intervención coronaria percutánea; el empleo de procedimientos de aislamiento de venas pulmonares para eliminar la fibrilación auricular; el incremento de la aceptación de estatinas, inhibidores de la ECA y desfibriladores, y la terapia de resincronización para tratar la insuficiencia cardiaca. Estamos en un momento de grandes avances en la genómica asociada a rasgos cardiovasculares complejos como el infarto de miocardio y las valvulopatías, y por esta razón se ha puesto énfasis en los aspectos de genética molecular cardiovascular. En esta 3.² edición se resaltan todos estos importantes cambios. Existen nuevos capítulos que tratan cuestiones como "Mujeres y cardiopatía", "Prevención de la insuficiencia cardíaca", "Células madre y regeneración miocárdica", "Resincronización cardíaca", "Tratamiento perioperatorio", "Reparación valvular percutánea e intracardíaca y procedimientos intracardíacos", además de otros que captan los avances en cardiología molecular.

Customer Reviews
<p><b>A brilliant and courageous doctor reveals, in gripping accounts of true cases, the power and limits of modern medicine.</b></p><p>Sometimes in medicine the only way to know what is truly going on in a patient is to operate, to look inside with one's own eyes. This book is exploratory surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is -- complicated, perplexing, and profoundly human. </p><p>Atul Gawande offers an unflinching view from the scalpel's edge, where science is ambiguous, information is limited, the stakes are high, yet decisions must be made. In dramatic and revealing stories of patients and doctors, he explores how deadly mistakes occur and why good surgeons go bad. He also shows us what happens when medicine comes up against the inexplicable: an architect with incapacitating back pain for which there is no physical cause; a young woman with nausea that won't go away; a television newscaster whose blushing is so severe that she cannot do her job. Gawande offers a richly detailed portrait of the people and the science, even as he tackles the paradoxes and imperfections inherent in caring for human lives.</p><p>At once tough-minded and humane, <i>Complications</i> is a new kind of medical writing, nuanced and lucid, unafraid to confront the conflicts and uncertainties that lie at the heart of modern medicine, yet always alive to the possibilities of wisdom in this extraordinary endeavor.</p><p><i>Complications </i>is a 2002 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction.</p>

How Doctors Think

Product Description
Customer Reviews
On average, a physician will interrupt a patient describing her symptoms within eighteen seconds. In that short time, many doctors decide on the likely diagnosis and best treatment. Often, decisions made this way are correct, but at crucial moments they can also be wrong -- with catastrophic consequences. In this myth-shattering book, Jerome Groopman pinpoints the forces and thought processes behind the decisions doctors make. Groopman explores why doctors err and shows when and how they can -- with our help -- avoid snap judgments, embrace uncertainty, communicate effectively, and deploy other skills that can profoundly impact our health. This book is the first to describe in detail the warning signs of erroneous medical thinking and reveal how new technologies may actually hinder accurate diagnoses. How Doctors Think offers direct, intelligent questions patients can ask their doctors to help them get back on track.<br /><br />Groopman draws on a wealth of research, extensive interviews with some of the country’s best doctors, and his own experiences as a doctor and as a patient. He has learned many of the lessons in this book the hard way, from his own mistakes and from errors his doctors made in treating his own debilitating medical problems.<br /><br />How Doctors Think reveals a profound new view of twenty-first-century medical practice, giving doctors and patients the vital information they need to make better judgments together.
