Internationally recognized opinion makers and experts in clinical and laboratory medicine synthesize the latest developments in the use of cardiac biomarkers by the practicing physician. The authors focus on integrating biomarkers into the contemporary clinical management of patients with cardiovascular disease, emphasizing clinical studies, evidence-based diagnostic algorithms, and critical pathways for triage and therapy, whenever available. They also illuminate the connections between specific biomarkers and the basic pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease, explain the analytical properties of the assays relevant to clinical practice, and highlight emerging novel biomarkers and new direction for biomarker development. Numerous figures, illustrations, and tables make key evidence and practical guidelines easily accessible. The book makes clear as never before to today's busy cardiologists, emergency room physicians, and internists how the various assays perform, which ones they should order to evaluate their patients, and how they might change their therapeutic approach based on the results of a biomarker assay.

Editorial Reviews

From the Foreword..."...readers of this text will find it an invaluable resource regardless of their familiarity with the subject."From the reviews:"This book provides a clear presentation of the use of biomarkers in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. . The author seeks to provide clinicians with an authoritative book on the current state-of-the art in cardiovascular biomarkers. . It is aimed at practicing cardiologists and does an excellent job of defining the development and use of the current set of cardiovascular biomarkers as well as providing insight into the future directions of the field."
