The new 6th Edition continues to be the definitive pocket-sized guide on the "hows" and "whys" of cardiovascular drugs. It provides in-depth information on all of the drug classes used to treat heart disease, and covers drug use, new drug classes, drug use for single and multiple problem management, and more. A user-friendly organization speed readers to the information they need, and dynamic new full-color drawings illustrate key pharmacological and physiological actions. The new edition includes access to the companion website, which offers bi-annual content updates to keep you current with new drugs, indications and leading trials. The website also has the feature of fully searchable text to access book content via drug, disease or drug action.
