Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Critical pathways are "standardized documents or computer order sets that incorporate new therapies and simultaneously attempt to streamline treatment in order to make it more cost effective" (from the preface). Following an overview of the general principles, 22 contributions discuss critical pathways in cardiology in emergency department, hospital, and outpatient settings. A sampling of topics includes thrombolysis for acute myocardial infarction, chest pain centers, a critical pathway for unstable angina, aortic dissection, pulmonary embolism, and smoking cessation.
