This book discusses CSI: Handbook on Cardiac Critical Care. The word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters, one represents danger and the other represents opportunity. That defines the practice of critical care cardiology where high-risk disease represents the danger and good long-term outcome with minimal morbidity in most patients who tide over the acute insult—represents the opportunity. Blood Gases in Coronary Care Unit, Electrolyte Abnormalities, Noninvasive Ventilation, Weaning in Patients with Cardiac Diseases, Hemodynamic Monitoring in Cardiac Critical Care Units, Acute Decompensated Heart Failure, Inotropes, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation in Cardiac ICU, Ventricular Arrhythmias, ECG Diagnosis of Myocardial Infarction in Challenging Situations, Cardiogenic Infarction in Acute Myocardial Infarction, and Anticoagulants in Cardiac Critical Care are covers in this book. Cardiac care has changed significantly over the last two decades and great progress has been made in the management of cardiac diseases. The focus of this book is to create an academic resource to address the issues of critical care cardiology and accumulate the views and ideas from experts in this field. This book is also focuses on specific issues faced by Indian physicians managing Indian patients.
