Two titles from the best selling Oxford Handbook and Emergencies in series are available together in this great value pack. Cardiovascular disease remains the major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout developed countries and is also rapidly increasing in developing countries. Cardiovascular medicine and the specialty of cardiology continue to expand, and the remit of the cardiologist is forever broader with thedevelopment of new sub-specialties. The Oxford Handbook of Cardiology provides a comprehensive but concise guide to all modern cardiological practice with an emphasis on practical clinical management in many different contexts. This second edition addresses all the key advances made in the field since the previous edition, includinginterventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and pharmacology. It expands the remit to medical students and the more junior doctor while retaining the level of detail required by more senior practitioners within the field. Acute cardiology problems often need quick, appropriate diagnosis and treatment. With the increasing complexity and rapidly-changing nature of available therapies, knowing which to use and when can be difficult. Emergencies in Cardiology, Second Edition, provides an easily-accessible guide todiagnosing and managing acute cardiovascular problems, incorporating both symptom-based and disease-based sections. Both are cross-referenced to each other, allowing rapid access to accurate, up-to-date information. There are specific sections on the management of cardiovascular problems inpregnancy and adult congenital heart disease, in addition to more practical sections on how to perform emergency cardiology procedures and ECG recognition. The book is designed for busy medical and cardiology teams, with bullet-point information for speed and clarity combined with the integral cross-referencing system, enabling quick access to the necessary information.
