ABOUT THIS BOOK
Comprehensive Cardiovascular Medicine in the Primary Care Setting provides an authoritative, detailed discussion of cardiovascular disease balanced with practical utility. Disease states are explained with emphasis on risk factors, risk estimation, and established cardiac disease. The book also delves into the co-morbid conditions which surround cardiovascular disease, including peripheral vascular disease, chronic kidney disease, depression, and erectile dysfunction, with the goal of improving quality of life for affected individuals. An abundance of algorithms, case studies, and recommendations on evidence-based best practices facilitate rapid learning. A key resource for the busy practitioner, this book is designed to give the reader the skills to confidently perform assessments, initiate and maintain efficacious therapy, and know when a referral to a cardiologist is advisable.
