Ellestad's Stress Testing: Principles and Practice
Ellestad's Stress Testing: Principles and
The sixth edition of Ellestad's classic text on cardiac stress testing has been extensively updated and re-written to communicate contemporary understanding of the classical principles of stress testing to clinicians and researchers, students and seasoned practitioners alike. The current techniques for performing stress tests presented herein reflect major technologic advances in imaging, physiologic monitoring and the assessment of cardiovascular risk, addressing fundamental paradigm shifts in interventional, surgical and medical treatment of heart disease. Moreover, the text addresses the dramatic changes that are occurring in patient demographics and the environmental, socioeconomic, gender and genomic factors that crucially impact heart disease and warrant attention when performing cardiac stress testing.Chapters on the physiology of exercise testing including practical details regarding protocols for conducting the stress test, proper supervision, important parameters to be monitored, and the diagnostic and prognostic information to be gleaned from the electrocardiogram set the stage for expanded chapters on the use of cardiac imaging in conjunction with stress testing. Physiologic and metabolic considerations during stress testing are covered in detail. Application of stres...

A Guide to IMF Stress Testing II: Principles, Concepts and Frameworks
A Guide to IMF Stress Testing II: Principles,
In this follow-up volume to A Guide to IMF Stress Testing: Methods and Models the authors look at the stress testing “software.” With stress testing increasingly accepted and used as a tool for financial surveillance, supervision, and risk management—in both the public and private spheres—qualitative aspects have taken on greater importance. The best practices, principles, and frameworks are critical for the credible and consistent implementation of the stress testing “hardware.”A Guide to IMF Stress Testing II presents the analyses and applications of the stress testing software. While the selection of appropriate methods or models is critical for the usefulness and credibility of stress tests, and the associated toolkits facilitate their application, such exercises must be undertaken within a coherent and all-inclusive framework. The first Volume--A Guide to IMF Stress Testing: Methods and Models (2014)--consists of the "hardware" of stress testing. It covers the various stress testing methods and models that IMF staff developed to support the institution's macrofinancial surveillance work, summarizes their respective pros and cons and their appropriate application(s), and provides the toolkits for their implementation.
