Provides an in-depth examination of epidemiologic research and prevention measures for the full range of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
This authoritative text on the world’s leading causes of death describes in detail the nature of atherosclerotic and hypertensive diseases—including their determinants, prevention and control, as well as policies for intervention in community and clinical settings.
This second edition is fully updated, more extensively referenced and expanded to include new information about the public health dimensions of CVD prevention, exploring the basis of public health decisions and the process by which decision-making bodies develop guidelines and recommendations.
