A unique reference book covering the relevant basic sciences of cardiac anatomy, physiology and pharmacology through to the initial clinical assessment and investigation. It covers the core curricula for paediatricians in training at all levels including the MRCPCH and DCH examinations. This book is relevant to paediatricians in training, general practitioners, emergency department staff and specialist nurses. General staff working in specialist regional cardiac centres and healthcare professionals involved in the care of children and young people will also find this essential resource extremely useful. 'The aim of this handbook is to provide a rapid and reliable reference to congenital and acquired cardiac problems. It is very well organised. provides a more detailed discussion of cardiac physiology and pathophysiology and a comprehensive guide to ECG interpretation. It should be of particular interest to paediatricians in training, including those studying for higher professional examinations, but it also provides a valuable source of reference for paediatricians already in practice.'
