Description

The new edition continues to be a practical, easy to understand, and up to date resource for managing coronary disease. It not only encompasses modern cardiology practice, but also considers how the patient came to arrive on coronary care, and what will happen them after they leave. The combined authorship of doctor and nurse reflects the close teamwork vital to the management of both patients and their families. Management of the cardiac patent is a complex process and this book has a clear approach conveying the necessary information in an easily understood way. It also has an excellent evidence base to ensure best practice and should appeal to staff in every cardiac unit.

Reviews

"This is a much needed and timely revision of an important text on coronary care. Jointly written by a nurse and a doctor, it provides up to date coverage of this rapidly changing speciality and offers a multi-disciplinary approach to coronary care and treatment.

Its language is clear and easy to understand. Management of a cardiac patient is a complex task, and this book offers clear and concise research-based information.

The content has been updated in line with the latest guidelines, including specific guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence."
