The New Edition of this popular resource continues to be an indispensable, clinical reference. It integrates the basics of cardiovascular therapeutics with practical applications for use. Readers will find in-depth discussions on all major cardiovascular problems...the latest treatment options...and the adverse effects and interactions of the most commonly used cardiovascular drugs. The 6th Edition features the most current guidelines from the American College of Cardiology (ACC) on cardiac arrest as well as drug tables organized by class. Critiques of guidelines and drug therapy recommendations allow the practitioner to use an evidence-based approach to the best drug available for a given clinical situation. Algorithms facilitate a better understanding of the appropriate drugs and when to choose them.

"...summarizing the rapidly evolving pharmacologic options available for the treatment of cardiovascular disease." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:92 - 4 Stars
"...a valuable clinical reference" -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:92 - 4 Stars
"This publication focuses on cardiac pharmacotherapy. The intended audience for this text includes cardiologists, internists, and medical residents. The author’s intent is to help physicians understand the pharmacotherapy of various diseases and the differences within cardiovascular drug classes that impact drug selection. … The references … are reasonably updated and predominantly use tertiary sources. … has many useful observations and more drug information than most physician-written books. … This is an interesting book that provides decent clinical and clinical trial observations … ."
