Overview

This book provides a clinical management approach to the care of women with known or suspected coronary artery disease using an evidence-based approach. The authors provide special management issues with women in developing clinical pathways including those of primary and secondary prevention of coronary heart diseases. The leading authorities cover the screening and diagnosis of coronary disease in women with chapters on epidemiology, varying symptom presentation, and choosing the best diagnostic tests based on gender. Also covered are disease management issues including the variations of therapeutic effectiveness in women, the evaluation of stable chest pain syndromes in women, and the evaluation of acute ischemic syndromes. The books concludes with chapters on the economics and policy issues in health care including the issues of gender bias, working with managed care, and the role of women's health centers in providing care, thus making this an essential text for all physicians treating coronary disease in women.
