Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Scott W. Ard, MD, BS (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a second edition of a board review that focuses on board-oriented patient scenarios with updated questions to reflect current AHA/ACC (American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology) guidelines and the rapidly expanding body of cardiovascular information.
Purpose: The book blends data from clinical trials and current AHA/ACC guidelines into a comprehensive yet concise board review question resource.
Audience: It is geared specifically to candidates taking the cardiovascular boards and the cardiovascular section of the internal medicine boards. The audience includes candidates seeking certification or recertification for the cardiovascular board review examination.
Features: The book contains over 700 questions and answers organized into specific areas. These areas are in the same proportion as on the actual board exam. In this edition, the electrophysiology chapters have been revised to include more tracings and the heart failure, coronary heart disease, and STEMI (ST segment elevation myocardial infarction) sections have been significantly revised to reflect current AHA/ACC guidelines.
Assessment: This is an excellent addition to the body of cardiology review manuals.
