A brand new series from Oxford University Press, the Oxford Clinical Imaging Guides are specifically designed to help doctors master bedside ultrasound imaging techniques. Each guide explains the principles and practice of using imaging in an easy-to-read, highly-illustrated, and authoritative manner.
Practical Perioperative Transoesophageal Echocardiography, Third Edition, is the definitive guide dedicated to helping clinicians use this essential imaging technique to manage perioperative cardiac patients.
Capturing the latest evidence-based developments; this resource offers authoritative guidance on monitoring and procedures for cardiac anaesthetists and intensivists. International expert authors help you apply this knowledge via clear step-by-step techniques with a focus on problem-solving and safe practice.
Extensively illustrated itself, the book comes with online access to even more content: over 670 videos with corresponding annotated still frames, plus you can test your knowledge by answering over 145 self-assessment questions.
This guide teaches you exactly what you need to know by covering the curriculum for the British Society of Echocardiography accreditation in Transoesophageal Echocardiography (BSE) and the European Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthetists/European Society of Echocardiography TOE accreditation examination (EACTA), and the US-based PTEeXAM.
An essential reference and interactive guide, this unique book should never be far from the cardiac anaesthetist's side.

• David Sidebotham is a cardiac anaesthesiologist and intensivist at Auckland City Hospital. He is the chief editor of the two previous editions of Practical Perioperative Transoesophageal Echocardiography (Elsevier 2003 and 2011) also of Cardiothoracic Critical Care (Elsevier, 2007). He lectures widely on perioperative transoesophageal echocardiography and has a particular interest in TOE for mitral valve repair. Davids other interest is mathematics; which he is studying in his spare time. He is interested in probabilistic phenomena in medicine and the psychology of decision-making under uncertainty.
• Alan Merry practises in anaesthesia and chronic pain management at Auckland City Hospital. He is Head of the School of Medicine at the University of Auckland, Chair of the Board of the NZ Health Quality and Safety Commission and a board member of the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists and Lifebox, which both aim to improve safety of patients globally. His research, books, book chapters and papers in peer-reviewed journals reflect interests in human factors, patient safety, global health and simulation. He is an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit and a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
• Malcolm Legget MBChB, MD, FRACP, FACC, FCSANZ is a consultant cardiologist at the Green Lane Cardiovascular Service, Auckland City Hospital, and Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Auckland. His research interests relate to the application of imaging and genomics for more accurate diagnosis and risk prediction in ischaemic and valvular heart disease. His MD thesis was on quantitative three-dimensional echocardiography. He is also interested in the use of digital technology to enhance medical student teaching in cardiology, perioperative transoesophageal echocardiography, and biosensors to assist in diagnosis of cardiovascular disease. Malcolm is the principal investigator on MENZACS (Multi Ethnic New Zealand Acute Coronary Syndrome Study). He is a Board member of the Heart Foundation of New Zealand, and Chair of the Translational Medicine Trust, and the Unicorn Foundation of New Zealand.
