More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John F. Moran, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This book is a pocket size, multi-authored text. The chapters cover angina, myocardial infarction, lipids, hypertension, and heart failure.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a concise, current overview of the drug treatment of the above areas of cardiovascular medicine. An outline of therapies in these areas is provided.
Audience: The editor indicates it is written for general practitioners, but it might be better suited for medical students and medical residents starting a cardiac rotation.
Features: The text contains many colorful tables as well as algorithms summarizing diagnostic approaches, details of lipid studies such as 4S, WOSCOPS, CARE, etc., and the treatment for congestive heart failure. There is a nice table on combination therapy for medications directed at hypertension. The text is 93 pages long and would fit in a shirt-pocket, but seems to be packed with pertinent information for the beginner. The text has a British slant. For example, contributors suggest that internal mammary artery bypasses are increasingly being used, but in the U.S. they are almost always used, if possible. The contributors also ranked diuretics behind ACE inhibitors in the treatment of heart failure and list Digoxin in a third position. There is no index, but the tables and the algorithms are more than sufficient.
Assessment: This text does provide a quick read for general practitioners, medical students, or medical residents who are starting a rotation on cardiology. It provides a nice review. In terms of a financial investment, though, there may be other texts that would be worthwhile such as Mills and Young's Practical Approach to Treatment of Heart Failure (Williams & Wilkins, 1998), and Robinson's Preventive Cardiology: A Guide for Clinical Practice (Future Publishing Company, 1998).
