As the health care system begins to focus more on family practice and pediatrics, the need for a comprehensive, mi -size reference text on pediatric cardiology for noncardiologists becomes stronger than ever. The third edition of "Pediatric Cardiology for Practitioners" meets this need, as a comprehensive, practically-oriented reference for noncardiologists. Updated and rewritten with the most recent diagnostic and therapeutic advances including pediatric drug dosage tables. New tables and figures have been added to improve understanding and clarity for the reader.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Roberta G. Williams, MD (University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a text written primarily for generalists and trainees. There have been extensive updates since the previous edition in 1988.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an understandable framework on which to build the concepts of diagnosis and management of congenital and acquired diseases encountered in childhood. This goal is particularly important because of the increasing need for primary care providers to guide resource utilization in the care of children with suspected or known heart disease.
Audience: The book succeeds in being easily understood and is organized in a manner to be useful for the noncardiologist. The author is a respected pediatric cardiologist who served as a family practitioner as well as a subspecialist and therefore is extremely well qualified to communicate with the target audience at their level of concern.
Features: Unfortunately, this complex and diverse subject cannot be reduced to simple blanket description without omitting some areas of legitimate controversy. Because there is such variation in management among centers of excellence, this book offers a oversimplified view of some of the subjects. Statements are made without any reference to the literature which adds to the impression that the book expresses a knowledgeable but isolated viewpoint. It is important to note that there is a serious typographical error on page 384 in which the dosages of dopamine and dobutamine are incorrectly described in units of milligrams per kilogram instead of micrograms per kilogram. Also, potassium and lidocaine dosages are described in a nontraditional and confusing manner. Finally, the book does not describe the newer methods of conscious sedation.
Assessment: Unfortunately, these serious flaws nullify many of the useful aspects of this book, especially because the target audience is not in a position to distinguish between established fact and rapidly changing information in this dynamic field.
From the Publisher

"This is a wonderful and extremely useful teaching guide and clinical tool...surpasses all other books on this topic in its goal of providing practical information to primary care practitioners. The new edition is justified for many reasons. Surgical techniques have changed since the last edition, and Dr. Park has updated this section extensively. The treatment of heart failure and pulmonary hypertension has also been updated nicely. The new chapters on palpitations and athletes with cardiac problems are also extremely useful. The updates, as well as Dr. Park's personal and logical advice on topics such as hypertension and hyperlipidemia, make this book the logical resource for primary care clinicians." - Doody's, ***
