Back cover copy

With a growing population of heart attack survivors and persons over 65, almost every practicing physician in the United States will increasingly encounter patients suffering the heart failure syndrome. In Heart Failure: A Clinician's Guide to Ambulatory Diagnosis and Treatment, leading practitioners from a major center for the study of heart failure-the University of Pennsylvania-review all aspects of heart failure diagnosis and management, with a particular emphasis on office-based/ambulatory care. Following the problem-solving steps used in an office-based practice, the authors provide extensive coverage of the presenting signs and symptoms of heart failure, as well as the tools with which to evaluate left-ventricular function, hemodynamics, and exercise performance. They also discuss the complex, evidenced-based therapeutic options for treating patients with dyspnea, fatigue, or edema, following the new ACC/AHA heart failure guidelines that are specifically directed at targeted symptoms. Treatment recommendations are also presented for the patient with advanced heart failure, including alternative therapies, surgical approaches, and devices. Problem-oriented and highly practical, Heart Failure: A Clinician's Guide to Ambulatory Diagnosis and Treatment provides an indispensable resource for physicians and nurses on the primary care team charged with the daily management of patients with heart failure.show more

Review quote

"The book is well referenced and up-to-date. The editors are leading heart failure specialists who have participated in multiple major clinical studies in establishing different treatments in heart failure. Jessup also sits on the ACC/AHA panel on developing chronic heart failure management and heart transplantation guidelines...The book is best suited for primary care physicians, nurses, and students of a broad range of healthcare professions, who take part in caring for patients with heart failure. This book serves as an overview as well as a condensed first source that links us to more in-depth heart failure resources." - The Annals of Pharmacotherapyshow more
