Oxford Handbook of Cardiology
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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.
