The editor and authors are well published and have extensive experience in clinical cardiology.
Purpose: This book provides an easy to navigate guide to common cardiac disorders and recommendations for treatment that will help physicians in their clinical decision-making and assessment of patients at the bedside.
Audience: The intended audience includes students, trainees, midlevel providers, internists, and practicing cardiologists.
Features: The beginning of the book focuses on managing cardiac risk factors. The chapters on heart failure address natural history and pathophysiology of the disease, followed by pharmacological and device therapy guidelines.
