Practical Cardiology: Evaluation and Treatment of Common Cardiovascular Disorders
This concise yet comprehensive text provides practical information on the common cardiovascular problems that clinicians encounter daily. Using the current American Heart Association guidelines as a framework, the book leads the clinician through the diagnostic workup and treatment/management decisions and provides cost-effective, evidence-based recommendations.
The first six chapters focus on evaluation of common symptoms; subsequent chapters cover evaluation and management of common diseases. Also included are chapters on perioperative cardiovascular care. Chapters follow a consistent structure covering differential diagnosis; general considerations; clinical, laboratory, and imaging findings; and treatment/management. Numerous tables and algorithms help readers find information quickly and aid in clinical decision-making.
