Overview

A concise introduction to the principles and practice of point-of-care echocardiography for neonatologists Practical Neonatal Echocardiography is based on an acclaimed course that the authors havetaught for the past 15 years at USC training neonatologists in cardiac ultrasound ofneonatal patients for on-the-spot examination and diagnosis. Drs. Siassiand Noori have trained hundreds of physicians to use ultrasound equipment toexamine neonatal cardiac function at the first sign of distress, leading to fasterdiagnosis and referral to pediatric cardiologists for treatment. This book is designed to helpreaders develop the skills necessary to perform a high quality neonatalechocardiographic examination, evaluate cardiac function, and recognizeabnormalities and defects. Practical Neonatal Echocardiography begins with an introduction to the basic principles of echocardiography and the ultrasound scanners commonly used at pediatric cardiac centers. Neonatal cardiac anatomy is clearly described through the use of 2-dimensional images andvideo clips. Subsequent chapters teach the assessment of cardiac function, bloodflow, shunts, physical defects, and abnormalities that may exist in the absence of adefect. Myocardial dysfunction, heart failure, shock, hypertension, cardiomyopathy,cyanosis, and more are discussed in detail with multiple illustrative cases. *Integrated throughout the chapters are 110 video clips, which when looped, will display a beating heart. These real-life cases will help readers hone their skills in recognizing defects in cardiac function and growth.*Covers essential principles of echocardiography with clear descriptions and illustrations*Describes common features of ultrasound scanners and how to use them
