  • Preface

  • The editors are proud and pleased to present the third edition of this textbook of echocardiography in cardiovascular emergency situations. The continuing demand for the book makes us confident that its concept is adequate and readers find here what they expect. As in the previous edition, we have further expanded topics, now including new chapters on lung ultrasound, percutaneous interventions, and intensive care. Figures and, crucially, videos have also been increased, the latter by 30%, and importantly, everything is also accessible electronically.

  •  The image material is truly a treasure trove of instructive cases, to which the editors can attest by themselves frequently using examples from the book for talks and presentations. Needless to say, echocardiography, focus cardiac ultrasound, and recently, lung ultrasound have become diagnostic workhorses in cardiovascular emergencies, re-emphasizing the critical need for education and training in these techniques. We hope readers and, most importantly, prospective patients will benefit from the in-depth knowledge and insight that our outstanding expert authors have brought to this new edition. We are proud to offer the contributions of so many excellent authors, far surpassing the expertise of any one expert, and sincerely thank them for their generously provided time and effort. 

  • The use of echocardiography in cardiovascular emergency situations continues to expand. Since the first edition of this book, cardiac ultrasound has become more widely available by introducing truly mobile, often pocket-sized devices that offer surprisingly good image quality. It has become more sophisticated by improving image quality and adding tissue Doppler, strain imaging, and real-time 3D imaging, as well as many electronic post-processing capabilities. Finally, its versatility and easy logistics are now harnessed by more medical specialists than ever, such as anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, and emergency physicians. Most of these aspects are represented in this book. The authors have added an enormous wealth of often stunning video examples that brings the book much nearer to imaging reality than still-frame illustrations can. New chapters, like that on mechanical circulatory assist devices and the FoCUS routine, have been also added, and all chapters have been rewritten and updated. The editors are proud of this much-enhanced second edition and thank the authors and numerous colleagues who contributed their experience and material. The authors continue to be a truly international and intercontinental band of friends that make this book much better than any single author could. We hope it will again be found useful by the readers.
