Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Keith Austin McLean, M.D.(Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This is a succinct and thorough manual on the subject of cardiology in a unique outline format in which the reader can search out specific areas of interest and rapidly gain information on the different clinical aspects of cardiovascular medicine. The small size makes this book extremely portable.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a readily accessible source of information that will allow the reader to rapidly and accurately assimilate an abundance of information about specific cardiovascular diseases. The editors do this in a very efficacious manner with the use of an outline formula.
Audience: This book is primarily intended for the cardiologist and cardiology fellow, but would also be of great use to the medical student, medical resident, or even cardiovascular surgical fellow, because it is an impressive foundation of knowledge. This book is a great asset to someone who is studying for the cardiovascular boards, internal medicine boards, or the cardiovascular recertification examination.
Features: The clinical manifestations of certain cardiovascular diseases are discussed in the first section, such as acute coronary syndromes, congestive heart failure, and valvular heart disease. Contributors delve into the management of such syndromes, and discuss direct patient management, including drugs and their dosages, optimal treatment therapies, and ramifications of each treatment. This book has a concise summary of adult congenital heart disease and its role for the adult cardiologist. The editors also devote a considerable amount of time to the medical treatment and prevention of coronary artery disease and its risk factors. A nice section is devoted to discussing electrophysiology studies, pacemakers, antitachycardic devices, syncope, and sudden cardiac death. In the second section contributors describe several cardiovascular procedures. Echocardiography is not forgotten, as contributors use diagrams and pictures to illustrate the essential phases of the transesophageal echocardiogram. Another extremely nice feature is the appendix, which contains a drug index listing several drugs, their typical dose, mechanism of action, indications, and side effects, accompanied by some useful comments.
Assessment: In comparison to other cardiovascular manuals, this one has more charts and figures, and is written in a more timely and efficient manner, which allows the reader to familiarize him or herself in a short period of time with the vast subject of cardiovascular disease. The editors meet their objectives with flying colors.

    Awesome book for PA's and NP's

    I am a new grad PA and this book has become the #1 book I read when I have questions about CV disease. It details diagnosis and treatment of all heart related disease. I whole heartedly reccommend this book.
