Overview

Hands-on guidance for managing pediatric patients with congenital and acquired heart disease



FULL-COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS



Part of the Pediatric Practice series, Pediatric Practice: Cardiology is filled with practical, clinically relevant guidance for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac conditions in children. The care of the patient forms the core of this text, which provides perspectives on epidemiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis that every pediatrician, cardiologist, family physician, and pediatric nurse needs to know.



Pediatric Practice: Cardiology includes concise yet detailed overviews of pediatric cardiac conditions, along with proven diagnostic and management strategies you can incorporate into your practice immediately. It familiarizes primary care providers with the tools used in the care of pediatric cardiology patients and explains the different types of congenital heart defects. Additional coverage includes the risk factors for acquired adult heart disease and the different forms of inflammatory heart disease.
