Cardiovascular disease remains the major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout developed countries and is also rapidly increasing in developing countries. Cardiovascular medicine and the specialty of cardiology continue to expand, and the remit of the cardiologist is forever broader with the development of new sub-specialties. The Oxford Handbook of Cardiology provides a comprehensive but concise guide to all modern cardiological practice with an
emphasis on practical clinical management in many different contexts. This second edition addresses all the key advances made in the field since the previous edition, including interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and pharmacology. It expands the remit to medical students and the more junior doctor while
retaining the level of detail required by more senior practitioners within the field.

Review quote

A brilliant and comprehensive review of cardiology aimed at general medical and cardiology trainees, allied health professionals and all those with an interest in cardiology. It is easily the best quick reference guide in cardiology available, and one that I have no hesitation in recommending. * Cardiology News *
