The ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Care is the official textbook of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) of the ESC. This new updated edition continues to comprehensively approach all the different issues relating to intensive and acute cardiovascular care. The textbook is addressed to all those involved in intensive and acute cardiac care, from cardiologists to emergency physicians and healthcare professionals. The chapters cover the various acute cardiovascular diseases that need high quality intensive treatment, but also organisational issues, cooperation among professionals, and interaction with other specialities in medicine. The largest section of the textbook is devoted to non-cardiac disease which could acutely involve the cardiovascular system. Other noteworthy chapters are on ethical issues - which are so important in acute cardiac care, such as patient safety, donor organ management and palliative care.
A unique characteristic of the textbook is the presence of a whole section devoted to biomarkers, which underline the growing importance of laboratory medicine in the field of intensive and acute cardiac care. A particular asset of the textbook is the digital version available on Oxford Medicine Online, which has additional online features including an extra chapter on lung ultrasound and many more images and videos, as well as a full list of references from all chapters. The online version is updated by the same authors on a yearly basis and is available with the print version and separately on a subscription basis, allowing easy access to content in digital and mobile optimised format. The textbook aligns directly with the core training curriculum for ACCA. This print edition of The ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Care comes with access to the online version on Oxford Medicine Online, for as long as the edition is published by Oxford University Press.

Review from previous edition The ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiac Care is an exceptional resource and invaluable review text. An excellent purchase for senior clinicians in cardiology and critical care and a must-have for cardiac intensivists-in-training, it also will be useful to scientists, clinical investigators, journal editors, and practicing clinicians. * JAMA *
In summary I found this textbook to be concise, yet comprehensive in its coverage of this important topic and believe it will be of considerable value to those who work in acute and intensive cardiac care. In general, it is authoritative rather than scholarly. However, it seems like a worthy curriculum for accreditation in this field and should help achieve the goal of making acute cardiac care uniform and of high quality across Europe. * Circulation *
The book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date, and clear review of the basic science, pathophysiology, and evidence-based medicine that comprises the core of IACC. It is encyclopedic and well written, and its 181 authors represent a Whos Who of respected contributors throughout Europe and the world. The level of detail, the plethora of topics, the quality of the illustrations, the expertise of the authors, and the depth of the bibliographies are impressive. The
