Abstract
The new edition of Cardiac Intensive Care--the only textbook dedicated to cardiac intensive care medicine--chronicles the progress made in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of patients with critical cardiac illness. Editors Allen Jeremias, MD, MSc and David L. Brown, MD present the landmark discoveries, greater understanding of syndromes, and technological advancements that have helped make clinical cardiology a progressive and interventional field. You'll get coverage of the plethora of noncoronary diseases in the CICU, as well as a complete compendium of up-to-date pharmacologic agents. The new full-color design and layout and nine new chapters give you the latest theoretical, technical, diagnostic, and therapeutic advances in an accessible and visually appealing format. Moreover, the full text is available online at expertconsult.com. Features the authoritative perspectives of a stellar group of contributors - many of whom are the pioneers in the fields they cover - for the best available guidance. Provides the basic science framework for the clinical material through a section on the scientific foundation of cardiac intensive care to give you the complete picture. Presents a pharmacological introduction to the classes of drugs so you know which are most commonly used in the CICU. Covers which noncoronary diseases frequently result in admittance to the CICU to prepare you for those diagnoses that are not of a cardiac nature.

Abstract
New Therapeutics for Traumatic Brain Injury: Prevention of Secondary Brain Damage and Enhancement of Repair and Regeneration explores traumatic brain injury (TBI), a major cause of death and disability throughout the world. The delayed nature of the secondary injury phase suggests that there is a therapeutic window for pharmacological interventions or other approaches to prevent progressive tissue damage and improve functional outcomes. It is now apparent that therapeutic interventions should entail both protective and repair/regeneration strategies depending on the phase of brain injury.

Abstract
No! We can’t rid of that!” Vnuk, author of the popular “Weeding Tips” column on Booklist Online, is here to show you that yes, you can. A library is an ever-changing organism; when done the right way, weeding helps a library thrive by focusing its resources on those parts of the collection that are the most useful to its users. Her handbook takes the guesswork out of this delicate but necessary process, giving public and school library staff the knowledge and the confidence to effectively weed any collection, of any size. Going through the proverbial stacks shelf by shelf, Vnuk explains why weeding is important for a healthy library, demonstrating that a vibrant collection leads to robust circulation, which in turn affects library budgets; walks readers through a library’s shelves by Dewey area, with recommended weeding criteria and call-outs in each area for the different considerations of large collections and smaller collections; Features a chapter addressing reference, media, magazines and newspapers, e-books, and other special materials; Shows how a solid collection development plan uses weeding as an ongoing process and making it less stressful and more productive. Also offers guidance for determining how to delegate responsibility for weeding, plus pointers for getting experienced staff on board; Gives advice for educating the community about the process, how to head off PR disasters, and what to do with weeded materials. Includes a dozen sample collection development plans, easily adaptable to suit a library’s individual needs; and Filled with field-tested, no nonsense strategies, this handbook will enable libraries to bloom by maintaining a collection that users actually use.
