About this book

This unique book details a multidisciplinary approach for providers caring for the Mechanical Circulatory Support (MCS) patient. Authors discuss the history of MCS, patient selection, surgical and post-operative care, mobility and nutritional issues for this subgroup of patients, along with outpatient management.  They are expert clinicians in the field of MCS and Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), who provide direct patient care, conduct research, publish and maintain current leadership positions within the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplant and International Consortium of Circulatory Assist Clinicians.

Non-clinical issues including Regulatory, Reimbursement, Administration, Program Development and links to Professional Organizations supporting MCS Clinicians are presented in the book that will be of great value to Nurses first, but also to Advanced Practice Providers (NP/PA), Dieticians, Physical Therapists and Administrators.
