“It remains a classic…continues to be relevant, informative and evidence based, which for a single author work is extraordinary.the only weakness with this text is that it does not fit in your pocket…there is no easily accessed, thoroughly referenced website that provides the information contained in this book. For now, it is a far more powerful and useful tool and should be available in your intensive care unit.”

—Annals of Thoracic Surgery, March 2006

"This is a high quality book that is particularly helpful to nonsurgeon practitioners or surgical residents who care for adult cardiac surgery patients. The strength of the book lies in its comprehensive coverage of the many peripheral details of the adult cardiac surgery patient in all phases (preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative) of care. The author addresses the many evolving changes in cardiac surgery and the updates make this new edition valuable"

—Ralph J. Damiano, MD, Washington University School of Medicine

“This book is great for a practitioner in cardiac surgery who is looking for more than an introduction to what diseases are, but their work up and treatment. This is a reference tool that gives you a fundamental knowledge base to work from. The comprehensive nature of the procedures and postoperative management make this book a unique reference. I abandoned the use of all other books when I found this one.”

—Loisann Stapleton, RN, MSN, ACNP, CCRN, Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, Cardiology, Neptune, New Jersey



“The content of this book is quite contemporary. The references are complete and include historically important data, as well as the most recent updates and new data. This book’s concise review of topics, tables, figures, sample orders, and checklists all allowed for quick reference and review. It is much easier to use than many of the other books out there. This book is a great pocket manual for students, surgical housestaff, surgical and ICU nurses, and surgical technicians.”

—Eric H. Awtry, MD, FACC, Director of Education, Section of Cardiology, Boston, Massachusetts



“This book gives a comprehensive overview of the most practical aspects of cardiac patient surgical care. A broad area of knowledge is covered and provides the reader a base to build upon later. It allows students, Physician Assistants, and residents new to the field an opportunity to learn quickly about cardiac surgery in a point-by-point manner that is time efficient and practical. The new 4th edition is updated and to the point with practical applications. I would give this book an A.”


—Julie Pappalardo, MHS, PA-C, Physician Assistant in Cardiothoracic Surgery, Bridgeport, Connecticut

"This textbook is a complete manual for students and practitioners involved in the care of cardiac surgery patients…providing a complete presentation of cardiac surgery within the confines of a handbook. Similar textbooks exist, however, this manual appears to provide the most complete and updated review of topics dedicated to the care of those patients. Caregivers of all levels are likely to benefit by keeping this manual readily available to assist with the management of routine and complex patients."

—The Journal of the American College of Surgeons on the third edition
