Cardiovascular Biomarkers: Pathophysiology and Disease Management (Contemporary Cardiology)

Cardiovascular Biomarkers: Pathophysiology and Disease Management (Contemporary Cardiology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

So rapidly has the number of cardiac assays available grown, and then improved, that current biomarkers not only diagnose cardiovascular disease, but also frame treatment strategies. In Cardiovascular Biomarkers: Pathophysiology and Disease Management, a distinguished panel of internationally recognized opinion makers and experts in clinical and laboratory medicine synthesize the latest developments in the use of cardiac biomarkers by the practicing physician. The authors focus on integrating biomarkers into the contemporary clinical management of patients with cardiovascular disease, emphasizing clinical studies, evidence-based diagnostic algorithms, and critical pathways for triage and therapy, whenever available. They also illuminate the connections between specific biomarkers and the basic pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease, explain the analytical properties of the assays relevant to clinical practice, and highlight emerging biomarkers and novel directions for biomarker development. Numerous figures, illustrations, and tables make key evidence and practical guidelines easily accessible. State-of-the-art and highly practical, Cardiovascular Biomarkers: Pathophysiology and Disease Management makes clear to today's busy cardiologists, emergency room physicians, and internists how the various assays perform, which ones they should order when evaluating their patients, and how the results of a biomarker assay can guide their therapeutic approaches.

Book News Annotation:

Cardiovascular biomarkers are regularly used in both the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases and in the framing of appropriate treatment strategies. Written by internationally recognized experts in clinical and laboratory medicine, this volume describes how the various assays perform and offers cardiologists, ER physicians, and internists some guidelines regarding which tests to order when evaluating their patients. Editor Morrow (Harvard Medical School) has organized the volume into six main sections that deal with biomarkers for certain types of cardiac problems (ischemia, inflammation, hemostasis, etc.).
