Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) is a growing global menace with patients increasing in developing countries where tobacco and food play a major role. Its treatment guidelines and research results have proliferated in academia, but practical applications lag behind that research. This book addresses this void. Guidelines for treatment of ACS present in-depth reading for practicing cardiologists, thus preventing clinical application. The book aims to appraise readers of real-world situations and suggestions to help them acquire up-to-date knowledge on ACS and its effective diagnosis, prognosis and management.
- Covers recent advances in ACS management and pharmacotherapy
- Discusses the guidelines for treatment of ACS for the professional cardiologist to apply to clinical practice
- Explores the topics with the help of case scenarios
- Follows a concise, yet comprehensive approach
- Features a chapter on 'When to Transfer,' which discusses how to spot unstable patients or those heading towards shock
