Conceived and written by cardiology fellows at Stanford University, a well–respected center for cardiac care and cardiovascular research and education, A Practical Approach to Cardiovascular Medicine reflects a keen understanding of how hectic a cardiology service can be and precisely what information clinicians need in order to effectively manage both commonly encountered situations as well as more complex clinical syndromes. In short, it is the ideal companion for any clinician who must have the latest and most–trusted recommendations close at hand.
