Cardiovascular medicine

One of the most time-consuming tasks in clinical medicine is seeking the opinions of specialist colleagues. There is a pressure not only to make referrals appropriate but also to summarize the case well in the language of the specialist. Cardiology is an essential tool in this task. It explains basic physiologic and pathophysiologic mechanisms of cardiovascular disease in a straightforward and diagrammatic manner, gives guidelines as to when referral is appropriate, and, uniquely, explains what the specialist is likely to do. This facilitates an understanding of the specialty not available from standard textbooks. Specific sections focus on understanding cardiology specialist tests (as explained in clinic or discharge letters), conquering the ECG, and explaining the basic science so often discussed without introduction in seminars and any hospital doctor, generalist, or even senior medical student who may need a cardiology opinion, or for that matter, anyone who simply wants some of Cardiology - explained.
