This new edition of Medical Management of Heart Failure will provide the full spectrum of medical options, ICU management and rehabilitation, while also prepare the reader for the second volume of Comprehensive Management of Heart Failure by introducing the surgical options in heart failure from transplant to the more noninvasive procedures in the interventional radiology department. The contributing authors are all key opinion leaders in the medical management of heart failure. This volume is designed to integrate with its sister surgery title, but also alone be the definitive guide to the medical management of heart failure.
