Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Andre C. Olivier, M.D., R.R.T.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a compilation of best practices, order sets, and critical pathways in cardiovascular medicine from hospitals across the United States. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a concise and standardized approach to the cardiovascular patient incorporating the most recent clinical guidelines in an attempt to improve clinical outcomes and reduce costs and hospital length of stay.
Audience: This is intended for all practitioners in the cardiology arena.
Features: This book uses flow charts, graphs, tables, and preprinted order sets as a guideline to the management of the cardiovascular patient in an attempt to standardize care in a cost-effective, evidence-based format. Chapters include current recommendations along with the level of supporting evidence and results of pertinent clinical trials.
Assessment: Given the surprising underutilization of beta blockers and/or ACE inhibitors in ACS patients, this book underscores the need for a basic, standardized approach to the cardiovascular patient. Although "cookbook" in nature, this book provides reviews of the current literature, outcome expectations, and best practices from institutions that we would not otherwise be privy to, as a catalyst for personal practice improvement.
