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 ManualĀ® 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 ManualĀ® 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.

Reviewer: Carlos D Giraldo, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This timely update of the 2003 edition of a manual of cardiovascular medicine incorporates recent guidelines and includes many updated tables and algorithms. This is a nice addition to the Washington Manual subspecialty consult series.
Purpose: This is intended as a quick reference guide to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The authors aim to deliver a frontline application of up-to-date guidelines with focus on patient care.
Audience: The book is written for students, physicians in training, midlevel practitioners, and cardiology fellows. The editors are known for producing review manuals that are a nice addition to any white coat.
Features: This edition provides a complete revision of every chapter and adds seven new chapters that focus on diagnostic testing and imaging, peripheral arterial disease, cardiovascular disease in diabetes, and venous thrombosis. There are also sections on cardiovascular diseases in special populations, advanced electrocardiography, and perioperative cardiac risk stratification.
