Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John F. Moran, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This book is focused on the cardiovascular system and is packaged with material that could be covered in a one-hour lecture.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive yet concise review of cardiovascular topics integrating structure, function, pathophysiology, and pharmacotherapeutics. The intent is to provide medical students what they need to pass exams. The authors accomplish these objectives.
Audience: The text is directed to pre-clinical medical students, but could also be used by advanced students and medical residents in need of a quick review of a cardiovascular topic.
Features: Each of the 51 chapters is built around an illustration or a table and is two pages long. There are sections on cardiovascular physiology, pathology, and therapeutics. All chapters have a good illustration or table with key words in each chapter in bold print. The chapters are up-to-date (e.g., points are present on glycoprotein IIb IIIa blockers and coronary artery disease, beta blocker usage in congestive heart failure, intra cardiac defibrillators, and heart transplants). In case studies at the end of the book patients with congestive heart failure, aortic stenosis, angina, atrial flutter, and ventricular tachycardia are covered. This is an attempt to focus the student on patient problems. The index is good but no references are provided for additional reading.
Assessment: This is a good text for medical students who need a focused review on a cardiovascular topic.
From the Publisher
"... this book is well worth more than a glance!"

Barts & the London Chronicle - 2000

"This book is exactly what it says it is. Each topic is well illustrated with a simple but informative diagram. The text is clear and concise, but with more than enough detail. Case studies with useful questions (and answers) are also included. Good value for money."

Sphincter, Liverpool Medical Students' Gazette

"...it does offer clinical students a thorough revision of really important topics essential for understanding the heart and circulation. The union of the basic facts with a clinical picture is maintained, and the book oozes suitability for students in the early years of the new undergraduate medical curriculum.

Student BMJ

"This book assumes no prior knowledge and would be a very useful first year purchase...Basically I think that this is a very good book for the first three years, its usefulness for the fourth year cardiovascular block remains to be evaluated, but I'll find out within the next few weeks."

Leech y Gelen, University of Wales College of Medicine
