Manual of Outpatient Cardiology
Practical, didactic format designed to deliver point-of-care information to practitioners of cardiology. Highly illustrated with schematics and useful clinical figures, this will be an essential reference to all outpatient cardiology procedures.
All health care providers need to know how to diagnose and
treat common cardiovascular diseases for one simple reason:
cardiovascular diseases are common and deadly. The prevalence
of cardiovascular diseases is enormous: 8% of adult
Americans have diabetes, 23% of men and 19% of women
smoke, 33% have hypertension, and 33% are obese . In the
United States, cardiovascular diseases cause over 780,000
heart attacks and 400,000 deaths each year . Cardiovascular
diseases are the biggest cause of death and disability across
the globe .
However, it is challenging to keep up with the latest
advancements in cardiovascular diagnostics and therapies.
The pace of medical research is accelerating, with the spread
of genetic testing, the explosion of clinical trials, and the proliferation
of treatment guidelines.
The Manual of Outpatient Cardiology provides a concise
and authoritative guide for a variety of health care providers
who do not necessarily specialize in cardiology: primary care
physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, residents,
and students. We have divided the book into three parts: cardiovascular
diagnostics, cardiac diseases, and cardiac symptoms.
We have included the most recent guidelines of both
the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart
Association to make this manual the most authoritative and
reliable outpatient guide available.
The section on Cardiac Diagnostics is a guide to health care
providers who are confronted with patients with common
cardiovascular diseases, and who must choose the best and
most cost-efficient set of tests. This section discusses when to
use specific tests, such as stress tests and cardiac ultrasound,
while weighing the risks and benefits. The chapters on
Common Cardiac Diseases emphasize conditions seen every
day in the clinics of general medical doctors and specialists,
including common diseases such as hypertension and dyslipidemia.
The final section, Approach to the Patient, summarizes
the most up to date strategy to evaluate and treat common
symptoms, including chest pain, dizziness, and palpitations.
We hope this Manual of Outpatient Cardiology will be useful
to a wide range of readers who want to learn more about
cardiovascular diseases encountered every day in the clinic.
We thank our contributors and members of the Cardiology
Division of University of Rochester Medical Center for their
knowledge and expertise in preparing this book.
