Cannon, Christopher P. with Elizabeth Vierck. The New Heart Disease Handbook: Everything You Need To Know To Effectively Reverse and Manage Heart Disease. Fair Winds: Quayside. Sept. 2009. 392p. illus. index. ISBN 978-1-59233-381-3. pap. $24.99. HEALTH
This excellent overview covers cardiac diseases via separate chapters devoted to angina, heart attacks, peripheral artery disease, heart muscle disease, arrhythmia, structural heart disease, and stroke. Each condition is accompanied by easy-to-understand illustrations and the appropriate diagnostic tests, newest treatments, and medications. Effective methods to control high blood pressure and cholesterol and make necessary lifestyle changes are also discussed. An appendix covers life-saving techniques: cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS), and automatic external defibrillators (AED). The glossary and index are effective references.
Verdict This outstanding heart handbook covers every aspect of heart care and treatment. Highly recommended for both lay readers and medical professionals.—James Swanton, Harlem Hosp. Lib., New York - Library Journal - Web Express, September 2009
