Pediatric Cardiology Handbooks from C.H.I.P.S.

Moss and Adams'
Heart Disease in Infants, Children, and Adolescents
including the Fetus and Young Adult
Two-Volume Set
Seventh edition
edited by Hugh Allen

Updated throughout, the Seventh edition of Moss and Adams' Heart Disease in Infants, Children, and Adolescents: Including the Fetus and Young Adult continues to be the primary cardiology text for those who care for infants, children, adolescents, young adults, and fetuses with heart disease.

Leading international experts describe state-of-the-art diagnostic and interventional techniques for young patients with congenital and acquired heart diseases and for adult survivors of congenital heart disease.

New to this edition:

  • the section on pediatric cardiac intensive care has new chapters on interventricular and cardiopulmonary interactions and on the extreme premature, premature, and normal newborn
  • a section From the Gene to the Neonate provides in-depth coverage of genetics, fetal echocardiography, and fetal cardiology
  • an extensive section focuses on adult survivors of congenital heart disease
