The POCKETBOOK OF CARDIOLOGY is designed to provide the practical information required for managing cardiology in-patients and out-patients. This includes sections on dealing with common out-patient consultations, common interspecialty referrals, cardiological problems on the cardiac surgery unit, acute cardiological emergencies, and terminal care in cardiology. Also, as cardiology is a specialty with a high technical content, sections are included that provide the core information relating to the common technical subspecialties - echocardiography, cardiac catheterisation and catheter intervention, pacing and electrophysiology. Finally, a technical data section provides details of normal values for cardiac catheterisation, echocardiography and electrocardiography.

Salient features

A practical manual of clinical cardiology, fully updated with the latest treatments and approaches.
Attractive two colour layout.
Written for doctors entering cardiology as career registrars who require practically-based materials, but of value to nursing staff and GPs.
