Thoroughly revised and updated, this pocket-sized manual is an adaptation of Topol's Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, Third Edition. The third edition of this best-selling manual follows the same structure as previous editions, using an outline format with key words and phrases highlighted in bold. The concise text provides easy access to the information needed to treat patients with cardiovascular disease and is appropriate for residents, fellows, practicing cardiologists, and nurse-practitioners. The content reflects Topol's text and Brian Griffin adds suggested reading at the end of each chapter. This latest revision presents updated clinical information and has eight new chapters, including obesity and metabolic syndrome, women and heart disease, and heart failure treatment.
