Awarded 1st place in the American Medical Writer's Association 2004 Medical Books Competition, this Cardiac Module provides general guidelines for the assessment and stabilization of neonates with suspected congenital heart disease (CHD). Information is presented in a simplistic, yet very accurate, highly visual format. An optional CD ROM is available for purchase that demonstrates the blood flow pattern for the various structural heart lesions presented. This program targets the learning needs of physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and others involved in the care of young infants with CHD. The first section of the book covers physical exam of infants with suspected CHD. The second section details the anatomic features, clinical presentation and initial stabilization of neonates with CHD. Specific heart lesions are covered in detail including those that are cyanotic ductal dependent, cyanotic not-ductal dependent, and left outflow tract obstructed ductal dependent lesions. The final section discusses modifications to the six S.T.A.B.L.E. (Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, Emotional support) assessment components that are necessary when caring for infants with suspected or confirmed CHD. Prompt, effective, and appropriate care of these infants can reduce secondary organ damage, improve short and long-term outcomes, and reduce morbidity and mortality. This is a must-have, excellent resource that is also very useful for explaining cardiac lesions to parents!

This remarkable and indispensable guide is as pure an example of this principle as I've come across." —Maureen Bisognano, president and chief executive officer, Institute for Healthcare Improvement "The International Society for Quality in Health Care's mission is to inspire, promote, and support continuous improvement in the quality and safety of health care worldwide. It is in this spirit that we welcome this new book on patient-centered care.
