Overview

Dyslipidemia affects almost half of American adults and is the most prevalent manageable risk factor for atherosclerosis. Lipid disorders often co-occur with other prevalent conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease; they are also often a concern with certain medication regimens (such as anti-retroviral and certain anti-psychotic agents). Proper treatment of dyslipidemia can reduce the risk of peripheral arterial disease, revascularization procedures, nonfatal myocardial infarction, stroke, and cardiac death. However, only 20% of adults meet the national guidelines for cholesterol control.

As part of the Oxford American Cardiology Library, this practical handbook is designed to serve as a concise yet authoritative resource on diagnosing and treating dyslipidemia. The book is tailored to the needs of busy health care professionals treating patients in various clinical settings, and focuses on presenting essential information to clinicians who are at the forefront of the diagnosis and management of dyslipidemia. Featuring evidence-based, concise yet comprehensive discussion of key clinical concepts in addition to numerous figures, tables and illustrations, this pocket-sized handbook will serve as an invaluable guide to healthcare professionals.
