In this greatly enlarged and thoroughly updated edition of his much praised Cardiac Markers, Alan Wu and his contributors focus on the use of markers in the practice of cardiology and-for the first time-on the use of natriuretic peptides for congestive heart failure. Here, leading international authorities in clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine, cardiology, emergency medicine, and the in vitro diagnostics industry describe the state-of-the-art uses of cardiac markers when treating coronary artery disease, and discuss in detail how they may be optimally used in a clinical setting. Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Cardiac Markers, Second Edition offers physicians a complete guide to the use of cardiac markers in clinical practice and clinical laboratorians a close-up view of the new markers now becoming standard.

Editorial Reviews

"addresses the need in a variety of disciplines for an understanding of the evolving role of cardiac markers, particularly in relation to the diagnosis and treatment of acute coronary syndromes. The book provides a concise and informative summary of a rapidly developing field and will be a useful addition to the book-shelves of clinical pathologists, emergency physicians, and cardiologists." -New England Journal of Medicine"...a valuable addition to the compendium of laboratory medicine literature on diagnostic tests and their appropriate clinical application...highly recommended for any individual interested in the state-of-the-art of appropriate laboratory assessment of the acute coronary syndrome patient." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"This comprehensive book not only offers physicians a complete guide to the use of cardiac markers in clinical practice, but also provides clinical laboratories with detailed information on the new markers which are now becoming standard." - Clinical Laboratory International"...highly recommended as a reference resource for cardiologists, internists, emergency medicine physicians, and laboratory medicine physicians who have specific questions regarding the many clinically relevant cardiac markers...will save the physician considerable time and effort in answering a specific question that he or she may have within this rapidly evolving field." - Texas Heart Institute JournalFrom reviews of the first edition..."...provides a concise and informative summary of a rapidly developing field and will be a useful addition to the bookshelves of clinical pathologists, emergency physicians, and cardiologists." -New England Journal of Medicine "...a valuable addition to the compendium of laboratory medicine literature on diagnostic tests and their appropriate clinical application...highly recommended for any individual interested in the state-of-the-art of appropriate laboratory assessment of the acute coronary syndrome patient." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
