Two titles from the best selling Oxford Medical Handbook and Emergencies in series are available together in this great value pack. Cardiovascular disease remains the major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the developed world and it is also rapidly increasing in the developing world. Cardiovascular medicine and the specialty of cardiology continues to expand, and the remit of the cardiologist is forever broader with the development of new sub-specialties. The Oxford Handbook of Cardiology is written by cardiologists and cardiac surgeons. It provides practical advice and background information on common cardiac conditions, including coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, valvular and congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies and heart failure. Specialist sections offer useful background information on diagnostic tests, management of cardiac problems in pregnancy and cardiology in the developing world. There are also chapters on eponymous syndromes, major cardiac trials and emergencies in cardiology.
This handbook is directed at all cardiovascular professionals who require rapid access, not only to the basics of cardiology, but also to up-to-date information into the more specialist areas with which they are less familiar. Covering a wealth of practical advice regarding patient diagnosis and management, the Oxford Handbook of Cardiology provides hands on information and advice to care of the cardiology patient. It is the essential quick reference guide for all trainees in cardiology and its related specialties. Acute cardiology problems often need quick, appropriate, diagnosis and treatment. With the increasing complexity and rapidly-changing nature of available therapies, knowing which to use and in what situation can be difficult. The freshly updated Emergencies in Cardiology, Second Edition, provides an easily-accessible guide to diagnosing and managing acute cardiovascular problems, incorporating both symptom-based and disease-based sections. Both are cross-referenced to each other, allowing rapid access to accurate, up-to-date information.
There are specific sections on the management of cardiovascular problems in pregnancy and adult congenital heart disease, in addition to more practical sections on how to perform emergency cardiology procedures and ECG recognition. The book is designed for busy medical and cardiology teams, with bullet-point information for speed and clarity combined with the integral cross-referencing system, enabling quick access to the necessary information.
