"This is an excellent reference for practicing clinicians and trainees in the various fields of medicine that are involved in the care of patients with cardiovascular disease." - Joseph A Randy Englert III, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation), Doody's Book Review Service

Cardiology: A Practical Handbook includes the latest information available on consensus, guidelines, tables, algorithms and resumes on all the subjects integrating evidence-based medicine and cardiology topics.

There has been an exponential increase in the amount of information available on the pathophysiology and management of heart diseases. Meanwhile, understanding of the underlying pathology and physiology has deepened and broadened with new methodologies to monitor cardiac structure and function. These developments have led to an overwhelming amount of information available to students, trainees, and physicians. What is in short supply is a comprehensive yet concise and clear description of the important cardiac conditions and disorders, an approach to their management, and an easily consulted and well-indexed summary to be used at the bedside or in the clinic. This book addresses that need.
