Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: John F. Moran, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This is a pocket-sized review of common cardiovascular disease problems that consists of 20 concise chapters written by nine contributors.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe common cardiovascular problems in a clinically concise manner and provide current material for management strategies. The 20 chapters cover topics from coronary artery disease to cardiopulmonary resuscitation and heart transplantation but do not contain a chapter on hyperlipidemia.
Audience: The authors state this book is indicated for medical housestaff, primary care physicians, and cardiovascular fellows. It is probably better suited for medical students and first year residents; more senior residents and fellows in cardiology would require more detailed information.
Features: There is a good cross-section of common heart disease problems. There is a particularly good chapter on coronary artery disease which covers diagnosis as well as treatment strategies. A table on the KILLIP classification is included, as well as a listing of mortality risks with various hemodynamic abnormalities. There are several pages devoted to 12-lead electrocardiograms which are of good quality, although they must be reduced by necessity because of the text size. There is a good diagnostic tree for arrhythmias and, again, electrocardiograms are demonstrated. The chapter on antiarrhythmic drugs covers metabolism, doses, drug interactions, and side effects in a very concise, outlined manner. Similarly, the use of pacemakers and intracardiac defibrillators is outlined and an approach to cardiac transplantation is well presented. The shortcomings of the text would be the shortcomings of any pocket-sized text on cardiovascular disease. The tables and the electrocardiograms are, of necessity, small, but they are readable. A chapter on hyperlipidemia would have been worthwhile.
Assessment: This is a good, short, pocket-sized text on cardiovascular problems. Much of the information is presented in outline form. The index is good and the tables are helpful.
