Overview

This concise yet comprehensive text provides practical information on the common cardiovascular problems that clinicians encounter daily.

The first six chapters focus on evaluation of common symptoms; subsequent chapters cover evaluation and management of common diseases. Also included are chapters on perioperative cardiovascular care. Chapters follow a consistent structure covering differential diagnosis; general considerations; clinical, laboratory, and imaging findings; and treatment/management. Numerous tables and algorithms help readers find information quickly and aid in clinical decision-making.
