Swanton’s Cardiology (formerly Pocket Consultant: Cardiology) is a highly practical, user-friendly reference and learning text which is of great value to a wide variety of staff working with cardiac patients.
Cardiology is a rapidly changing and expanding field with management protocols changing regularly and newer categories of treatment options being discovered, with greater emphasis on the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Now in its sixth edition, this best-selling book has been highly praised for its readability, conciseness and clear illustrations and offers a clear and didactic style, presenting information in the form of lists and tables for quick and easy reference.
The sixth edition now offers:
* a new design for easier navigation and use
* highly practical advice with clear tables for quick and easy reference
* five new chapters including pregnancy and heart disease and echocardiography
In addition, Swanton’s Cardiology covers some subjects in cardiology that are not well covered in clinical training, and this book will help fill any gaps in the reader's clinical course, for example, sections on congenital heart disease, pacing, and cardiac investigations.
