Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: Part of the Current Clinical Practice series, this book outlines the basic concepts that a family physician should fully understand when caring for patients with the more common cardiac diagnoses. This is an update of the 2006 edition.
Purpose: This edition covers the recent changes in cardiology and the practice of caring for patients with cardiology problems. It is well written, focuses on current concepts, and has an extensive review of the literature in each chapter.
Audience: This is primarily geared to primary care providers, whether family medicine physicians, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners. It is also a very good summary for students of medicine as it translates the current literature into usable practice concepts.
Features: The book is divided according to diagnosis — angina, acute coronary syndromes, arrhythmias, heart failure, etc. Each chapter, in turn, discusses the definition, how to make the diagnosis, specific concepts of physiology, and, finally, treatment options. As noted, the references are current and appropriate. The tables and figures are clear, but do not always fit well on the page, and the index is somewhat superficial.
Assessment: Overall, this is a helpful summary of what is important in caring for patients with heart problems. There are a significant number of these types of books available; this one is on a par with most of them.
