If you understand heart failure, you understand cardiology
This book applies practical clinical concepts to the latest four-stage model of heart failure from preclinical risk and early asymptomatic disease to classic symptomatic heart failure and finally advanced heart failure. This framework emphasizes a tailored approach to ongoing heart failure assessment to guide therapy and improve outcomes.
From a well-known author of multiple publications on cardiovascular disease and research, this book provides comprehensive insights into known etiologies, pathophysiology, clinical presentations, diagnostic procedures, and management strategies for heart failure aimed at clinicians managing these patients and specialists investigating the scientific basis of the various stages of heart failure.
The book fulfills its purpose of providing a deeper understanding of the various stages of heart failure. Its particular strength is the broad, in-depth discussion of clinically relevant topics. Readers will appreciate the illustrative pictures, diagrams, graphs, and tables, which will help in digesting the material.
This is clearly designed for those who routinely care for heart failure patients and advanced level trainees, including cardiologists, researchers, internists, nurse practitioners, and housestaff. The author is an internationally known expert.
After clearly elaborating the epidemiology, morbidity, and mortality associated with heart failure, the book discusses various risk factors that lead to the development of this disease. Then, it provides novel insights into various factors and mechanisms that contribute to the propagation of various stages of heart failure and delivers an overview of available assessment tools and management regimens for each stage of heart failure. Finally, it briefly illustrates how to put the evidence to use in therapeutics for heart failure. It provides the most comprehensive coverage to date of most aspects of the different stages of heart failure, and the interdisciplinary approach makes it valuable to physicians caring for patients with heart failure.
This book underscores the medical importance of recognizing the various stages of heart failure, their economic costs, and the interplay of the various mechanisms/factors involved. It is concise yet comprehensive in its coverage of this important topic. Its spare style lends itself well to the needs of busy physicians who want to quickly look something up related to heart failure.
