Description:

This book provides the framework for a singular reference in the field of pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary vascular disease is a complex and heterogeneous condition characterized by remodeling of distal pulmonary arterioles that increases pulmonary vascular resistance to affect cardiopulmonary hemodynamic and right ventricular function adversely, resulting in a clinical syndrome of diminished exercise tolerance, shortness of breath, and heart failure-associated morbidity and mortality. Owing to the availability of novel pulmonary circulation-selective pharmacotherapies over the previous decade, the number of pulmonary hypertension patients eligible for treatment has increased substantially. Despite this progress, under-awareness persists within the practicing pulmonary, cardiovascular, and general internal medicine communities. This is due, in part, to the complex array of molecular mechanisms implicated in the pathobiology of PH, as well as cutting-edge discoveries from translational scientific works that provide a new framework by which to understand pulmonary vascular-right ventricular coupling. Taken together, a key educational opportunity is exposed to bridge this knowledge gap through the synthesis of a contemporary text that emphasizes basic science, translational and clinical principles, and treatment strategies for understanding pulmonary hypertension.

This definitive textbook details the rapid advances in epidemiology, pathobiology and therapeutics in the field of pulmonary hypertension. Despite recent progress, under-awareness persists within the practicing pulmonary, cardiovascular, and general internal medicine communities. This is due, in part, to the complex array of molecular mechanisms implicated in the pathobiology of PH, as well as cutting-edge discoveries from translational scientific works that provide a new framework by which to understand pulmonary vascular-right ventricular coupling. This book bridges this knowledge gap through the synthesis of a contemporary text that emphasizes basic science, translational and clinical principles, and treatment strategies for understanding pulmonary hypertension.

Pulmonary Hypertension: Basic Science to Clinical Medicine is the essential reference for any physician or scientist with an interest in pulmonary hypertension. The Editors and their hugely knowledgeable list of contributors have provided a contemporary, comprehensive overview of the field in all of its complexity that will be vital for all levels of clinician, researcher and trainee in respiratory medicine, cardiology, critical care and all disciplines involved in the management of patients with pulmonary hypertension.

User’s Review:

“This is a comprehensive book on the important clinical topic of pulmonary hypertension, and one of the most up to date on this emerging field of study. … The intended audience is specialists in the field of cardiology and pulmonology. … This book is useful for both clinicians and those interested in basic science and translational research.” (Shubhum Misra, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2016)

Well written book. Delivery took some time, but great purchase.
