The purpose of this book is to enable the reader, at a glance, to understand the key points in cardiology. The book is filled with easy to understand tables, figures, drawings, and algorithms to aid in quickly grasping difficult concepts. Whether in the Emergency Room (ER), coronary care unit (CCU), cardiac telemetry or step-down unit, office setting, or just on a cardiology elective, this book will be able to provide to the reader all the necessary information for points of discussion in a practical format.
The book is divided into four parts that capture the different aspects of cardiology: Part I covers cardiology in the emergency room (a symptom guided approach), Part 2 covers the acute syndromes in cardiology, Part 3 covers the consultative and outpatient aspects of cardiology, and Part 4 covers the interpretation of the current cardiac technologies we use.
Cardiology at a Glance is useful for a wide range of individuals in all aspects of training, who have an interest in cardiology, which includes but is not limited to: medical students, interns, residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, cardiovascular technicians, and physician assistants. In particular, internists and emergency room physicians who need a quick hands-on reference will undoubtedly benefit from this behind the scenes and deciphered view of cardiology.
We hope that you will find Cardiology at a Glance useful and applicable to your everyday involvement in this exciting specialty.

I have used this book only for a day, very good format and precisely what I was looking for. But there is a small correction, so publisher and author note: Page 179 Lipid Management says >100 LDL cholesterol is optimal (it is wrong). The next page says <100 LDL Cholesterol is optimal (it is right). Page 179 needs to be fixed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
