Pollock's Textbook of Cardiovascular Disease
This book provides a comprehensive description of the growth area of cardiovascular disease, highlighting advances in medications, smoking reduction, risk factor identification and physical activity. It brings the reader up-to-date on developing topics related to the cardiovascular system and not just cardiac rehabilitation. This is important for both professionals and patients who do not fit the traditional model. It details the pathophysiology of the cardiovascular system and medical care for conditions such as periphereal arterial disease, stroke and aneurysms. It also covers epidemiology, pathophysiology, medical and lifestyle management of cardiovascular disease, together with medication, affects, effects and interactions.
