It is divided into three sections: the first provides acute presentations for quick diagnosis, the second addresses specific conditions, and the third offers clear descriptions of how to perform common practical cardiac procedures. Packed with concisely written summaries and bullet-point information, it is the ideal guide to the practical management of cardiac emergencies.
