"...well written and well organized. It should be welcome as a reference text to the libraries of multidisciplinary teams caring for cardiac patients." ----Canadian Journal of Surgery "This book presents a comprehensive and up to date review of the use of the intra--aortic balloon pump (IABP) ...The sections on balloon pump equipment, consoles and catheters, and the physiology of balloon pumping are all particularly good, and perhaps should be mandatory reading for all trainees in cardiac surgery, cardiac anesthesia, invasive cardiology and clinical perfusion. "It is a worthwhile addition to the library of a busy cardiovascular critical care unit in which IABPs are used frequently, and is a good reference text for anyone who is considering research involving the IABP." ----Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
