Overview

A textbook on the cardiovascular system for medical students, offering an integrated coverage of the basic science and major diseases of the system.

  • Coverage of the basic science is clinically driven - a common clinical presentation introduces each major topic.
  • Clinical cases are used and explained in the chapter rather than merely being present to provide additional interest.
  • Coverage of major diseases of the cardiovascular system equips students for the contact with patients which now occurs much earlier in the medical course.
  • Attractive, open two colour page design with objectives defined at the start of each chapter and self-assessment at the end.
