Overview

Prepared by residents, fellows, and attending physicians at the Washington University School of Medicine, this handbook is a practical quick-reference guide to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. It covers both inpatient and outpatient management approaches with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington Manual® of Medical Therapeutics. Chapters include mnemonics, easily remembered bullet-point lists, bold-faced clinical pearls, and easy-to-read figures.

This thoroughly revised, updated Second Edition emphasizes current guidelines from the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology. New chapters cover new cardiac imaging modalities, peripheral vascular diseases, and cardiovascular diseases in specific patient populations, including women, the elderly, patients with HIV, and patients with diabetes. An appendix facilitates quick recall of the most common cardiovascular medications, common doses, and important side effects.

The Washington Manual® is a registered mark belonging to Washington University in St. Louis to which international legal protection applies. The mark is used in this publication by LWW under license from Washington University.
