SUMMARY

A variety of cardiovascular illnesses are now being encountered with surprising frequency in many general adult medical practices. With contributions from 70 top experts, Cardiology for the Primary Care Physician provides complete coverage of the appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to patients with cardiovascular diseases - in one easy-to-use source. In 46 chapters the primary care physician can find information on all types of cardiovascular illnesses such as infectious myocarditis, cardiac arrhythmias, pheochromocytoma, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The many charts, tables and diagrams, as well as a special color plates section, enhance understanding and bring the text to life. Key points at the beginning of each chapter, together with extensive references and recommended reading lists, make this text an ideal work companion
