Pediatric Cardiology for Practitioners / Edition 5

As the health care system begins to focus more on family practice and pediatrics, the need for a comprehensive, mi -size reference text on pediatric cardiology for noncardiologists becomes stronger than ever. The third edition of "Pediatric Cardiology for Practitioners" meets this need, as a comprehensive, practically-oriented reference for noncardiologists. Updated and rewritten with the most recent diagnostic and therapeutic advances including pediatric drug dosage tables. New tables and figures have been added to improve understanding and clarity for the reader.
