A concise summary of the most important medical and scientific topics concerning cardiovascular medicine in the primary care environment. Writing in an easy-to-read format-background, diagnosis, and disease management-and emphasizing practical techniques of evaluation and treatment, the authors explain the basic mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease states and the treatment strategies that arise from them. Topics range from acute coronary syndromes, arrhythmias, and hyperlipidemia, to hypertension, pericardial diseases, valvular disease, and stable angina. Cardiology in Family Practice: A Practical Guide offers a clear understanding of today's standard approaches to cardiovascular illnesses and a highly valuable resource when specific questions arise during the care of patients. A special PDA version of Cardiology in Family Practice: A Family Guide is also available.
