New to the 4th Edition: examples added of key electrocardiographic tracings for quick reference; new chapters cover diabetes and cardiovascular disease, pulmonary hypertension, systemic disease and the heart, management of TAVR patients, and troubleshooting LVADs; updated content reflects the latest advances in cardiovascular medicine-including percutaneous aortic valve replacement and left ventricular assist device management; quick-reference list of common formulae helps you find vital information in seconds. "I would recommend this book highly. It is comprehensive yet concise. It is a pleasure to read and easy-to-use. The format is ideal with excellent illustrations and very clear diagrams and ECGs of high quality.
The tables summarizing points in the text are very useful for quick and easy reference.
The subjects are covered in a clinically useful way with chapters on for example 'syncope' and 'evaluation of chest pain in the emergency unit' which would help the trainee cardiologist in their day-to-day practice. There is also a large section on cardiac procedures which would be useful to the trainee and in fact covers the essential detail more clearly than some larger textbooks."
