Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The aim of this book will be to provide comprehensive coverage of cardiovascular disease in a respectful, authoritative, and easy to apply manner. Concept will be intricately balanced with practical utility. Disease states will be explained. Algorithms, case studies, and recommendations on evidence-based, best practice will be presented in every chapter. The book will be suited toward mid-level providers, family physicians, internists, and endocrinologists. Risk factors, risk estimation, established cardiac disease, forms of peripheral vascular disease, chronic kidney disease, depression, and erectile dysfunction, among other topics, will all be presented. The book will not be encyclopedic; rather, it will be designed to help the busy practitioner perform assessments, initiate and guide efficacious therapy, and know when referral to a cardiologist is advisable. Improving the quality of care will be the ultimate goal.
