Revieweredric Joseph Clarke, Medical Doctorate(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description:This book details evidence-based practices for management and treatment of patients with heart failure.
Purpose:The purpose is to provide a comprehensive and clinically oriented practical reference, focusing on common and as well as less known practical applications in treatment.
Audience:This book is targeted to all community practitioners who are required to diagnose, manage, and treat patients with and presenting with heart failure. With many established reviews and clinical trials, the authors are credible in their presentation of the data.
Features:Flow charts, graphs, and tables complement the text. The book ranges from the epidemiology and pathophysiology of heart failure to newer, innovative approaches treating the heart failure syndrome. However, complete details on the variability in treatment options based on patient populations were obscure.
Assessment:Overall, the book is clinically relevant for clinicians who are called upon to treat and manage patients with heart failure. The book provides evidence-based modalities for the management of these complex patients, while providing concise pathophysiological background.
