The Washington Manual Cardiology Subspecialty Consult
Peter Alan Crawford
Lippincott Williams & Williams, 2004 - Medical - 306 pages
Prepared by cardiology fellows and residents and reviewed by attending cardiologists, this quick-reference handbook from the Washington University School of Medicine is a pragmatic guide to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of cardiovascular disease. The text is fully supported with illustrative tables and figures. It covers symptoms and diseases, inpatient and outpatient approaches, and acute and chronic problems with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics. Reflecting today’s emphasis on evidence-based medicine, the practical approaches are clearly supported by clinical investigations. A section on testing and procedures includes imaging, diagnostic testing modalities, management of anticoagulation in surgical patients, and cardiovascular critical care procedures and provides fast reference to important concepts.
This handbook is also available electronically for handheld computers. See PDA listing for details.
