Back cover copy

The ideal textbook of cardiology lies between the very detailed and enormous encyclopedias of cardiology and the diminutive manuals and handbooks that provide a quick but superficial tour of the field. Clive Rosendorff, md, phd, and a panel of researchers and clinician-scientists, who are all leaders in their fields, create such a text with their second edition of Essential Cardiology: Principles and Practice. Drawing on years of practical experience, as well as the enormous number of recent scientific and clinical advances, the authors distill for the busy practitioner the essence of cardiology principles and techniques today. All of the original chapters have been extensively rewritten and two new chapters on acute coronary syndromes following the modern classification have been added: one on unstable angina pectoris and non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, and the other on ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. The sections on epidemiology, cardiovascular function, examination and investigation of the patient, disorders of rhythm and conduction, heart failure, congenital heart disease, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, hypertension, and other conditions affecting the heart have all been brought up to date to reflect our current optimal understanding and management of cardiovascular disease. Compact yet comprehensive, Essential Cardiology: Principles and Practice, Second Edition offers today's busy cardiology and internal medicine practitioners, cardiology fellows, and medical residents authoritative but rapid access to the latest ideas and techniques needed for today's gold standard diagnosis and treatment of cardiac patients.show more
