Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sushant B. Sharma, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This short book provides an overview of cardiovascular disease for the primary care physician. It focuses on the basic mechanisms underlying disease states and practical techniques for the evaluation and treatment of patients with cardiovascular problems based on the best evidence currently available.
Purpose: Recognizing the accelerated rate of advances in cardiology, this book offers a clear and concise update on the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease. The primary care physician is the front line of defense against cardiovascular disease and this book is a valuable resource offering the latest medical and scientific knowledge to treat cardiovascular illnesses.
Audience: It is intended for busy primary care physicians and successfully presents an overview of the evaluation and management of cardiovascular illnesses. Additionally, each chapter is very well referenced if more information is necessary.
Features: The book offers an overview of cardiovascular disease with several well-referenced chapters on acute and chronic coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, valvular disease, congestive heart failure, as well as hypertension and hyperlipidemia. The concise nature of the book will certainly appeal to busy primary care physicians seeking a quick update on the latest treatment strategies. Several chapters include tables and algorithms to clarify the management strategies. The concise nature of this book prevents it from being an exhaustive review of cardiology; however excellent references are provided at the end of each chapter for those seeking more information — a strong asset in the era of evidence-based medicine.
Assessment: This concise book is unique in its attempt to provide well-referenced essential information in the ever expanding field of cardiology. Those seeking a more exhaustive review of a particular topic will appreciate the extensive references at the end of each chapter or are perhaps better served with a major cardiovascular reference.
