Emergencies in Cardiology
OUP Oxford, Dec 10, 2009 - Medical - 437 pages
Acute cardiology problems often need quick, appropriate, diagnosis and treatment. With the increasing complexity and rapidly-changing nature of available therapies, knowing which to use and in what situation can be difficult. The freshly updated Emergencies in Cardiology, Second Edition, provides an easily-accessible guide to diagnosing and managing acute cardiovascular problems, incorporating both symptom-based and disease-based sections. Cross-referenced to the Oxford Handbook of Cardiology, this handbook allows rapid access to accurate, up-to-date information. There are specific sections on the management of cardiovascular problems in pregnancy and adult congenital heart disease, in addition to more practical sections on how to perform emergency cardiology procedures and ECG recognition. The book is designed for busy medical and cardiology teams, with bullet-point information for speed and clarity combined with the integral cross-referencing system, enabling quick access to the necessary information.
