MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Filling a large gap in the literature, this book focuses on the management of patients who have, or are at risk of developing, cardiovascular disease. Designed to serve as a resource for the busy, practicing clinician, the approach is evidence-based but practical. Conceptual development and the exploration of biochemical and physiological mechanisms are balanced by focused attention on the everyday issues of caring for patients with specific metabolic and cardiovascular disorders.



Reinforced by case studies, the book discusses standards of care and challenging management issues. The authors discuss pharmacotherapeutic choices in light of findings from clinical trials, elements of care unique to women and people of different racial and ethnic groups, lifestyle modifications, and the risks and benefits of specific therapies. The book reviews comprehensive care in both primary and secondary prevention settings.



Moreover, Comprehensive Management of High Risk Cardiovascular Patients encourages primary care providers to get more involved in treating such disorders as atherosclerotic disease, congestive heart failure, severe hypertension, complex dyslipidemias, and chronic renal disease, among others.
