The original book Practical Cardiology was primarily designed as a reference for general practitioners in the fast growing area of cardiology. The book was published in 1999 into a market notorious for not purchasing books. The concept is to be rewritten to access a broader market of clinical medical students, GP registrars in training and cardiac nurses. Market conditions have changed at all levels – undergraduate/trainee and practising. The market has grown at undergraduate level, the trainee curriculum is undergoing significant change and practitioners are responding to new products following changes in healthcare levies. Examination Cardiology will use the same problem based approach but will be updated and redesigned. The table of contents is provisionally the same as the original book.
• Many of the drawings and diagrams which come from Clinical Examination, are vastly improved in their colour versions in CE5.
• An additional contributor will author a chapter on ECG interpretation
• This book will have a supplementary DVD of cardiac procedures.
• There will be general references and further reading at the end of each chapter
• There will be an appendix of websites which produce relevant guidelines – National Heart Foundation, European Society for Cardiology etc

Key Features

  • Supplementary CD of cardiac conditions and procedures including echocardiograms, cardiac catheters and angioplasties
  • Dedicated ECG interpretation chapter
  • Emphasis on evidence-based medicine and clinical trials

The accompanying CD contains MRI, echocardiographic and angiographic images of the heart to complement the still images and illustrations throughout the text. They illustrate important cardiac abnormalities and show how cardiac procedures such as angioplasty and atrial septal defect closure are performed. Important complications of interventional procedures are also demonstrated. The CD will assist clinicians and their patients to understand the various interventions.
