This useful workbook reviews the methods, formulas, and calculations of hemodynamic variables currently used in cardiology. The author emphasizes appropriate catheterization techniques and the assumptions and limitations of various formulas in hemodynamics quantitation. Most chapters are excellent reviews of known published data and, as such, are useful to the cardiologist, cardiology residents, and fellows involved in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. This book will also be of assistance to physicians and nurses involved in hemodynamic quantitation.
