From the Publisher"This is a concise overview of the most common topics in cardiology, including evidence-based approaches to cardiovascular disease and comprehensive coverage of common cardiovascular procedures. Each chapter closes with an extensive reference list to guide readers to further reading. This edition's additional features include management of patients with novel procedures, such as percutaneous heart valve replacement and left ventricular assist devices, a section on systemic diseases and their effect on the heart, diabetes and cardiovascular disease and pulmonary hypertension."
"This book will be a valuable aid for those caring for patients with cardiovascular diseases on a day-to-day basis."

“I would recommend this book highly. It is comprehensive yet concise. It is a pleasure to read and easy-to-use. The format is ideal with excellent illustrations and very clear diagrams and ECGs of high quality. The tables summarizing points in the text are very useful for quick and easy reference. The subjects are covered in a clinically useful way with chapters on for example ‘syncope’ and ‘evaluation of chest pain in the emergency unit’ which would help the trainee cardiologist in their day-to-day practice. There is also a large section on cardiac procedures which would be useful to the trainee and in fact covers the essential detail more clearly than some larger textbooks.” — BMA Medical Book Award reviewer, 2013 BMA Medical Book Awards
