After accolades from Crawford Adams and Alfred Soffer, one plunges enthusiastically into a lucid presentation of shock after myocardial infarction. A logical progression leads from the disturbed physiology and metabolism impairing cardiac function to management. Detailed considerations of cardiac oxygen need and energetics provide rational bases for treatment. Hypoxia, catecholamines, digitalis, glucagon, corticosteroids, and mechanically assisted circulation are discussed in depth. Each topic is supported by many references that make the book a valuable resource. What a shame the printer messed up a good book! Fifteen percent of the figures and tables are badly reproduced. Pictures and print are tiny.
