Cardiology Summary


Cardiology by Dr Howard Swanton (Consultant Cardiologist, The Middlesex Hospital, London UK )

This pocket-sized book is intended to give practical advice to doctors and nurses confronting cardiac problems on the ward. As a practical guide it has a clear and didactic style and the information is presented in the form of lists and tables for quick reference. Considerable updating has been carried out to reflect the rapid pace of change in clinical cardiology. There are new sections on transoesophageal echocardiography, care of the heart transplant patient, post-mycocardial infarction risk stratification, and cardiological assessment of the general surgical patient.
