Description

Written by residents, fellows in training, and experienced attending physicians, this pocket book presents an evidence-based clinical approach to cardiology in a concise quick-reference format. The book is designed for rapid point-of-care consultation and is ideal for residents, fellows, and practitioners who operate in a fast-paced environment.

The comprehensive coverage ranges from preventive cardiology, to acute coronary syndromes, to electrophysiology, to cardiology consultation. Current AHA/ACC guidelines are combined with evidence-based findings and reviews of clinical trials. Each clinical problem is analyzed in detail to aid in diagnosis. Appendices cover central vascular access techniques and clinical pharmacology.
