One of the most time-consuming tasks in clinical medicine is seeking the opinion of specialist colleagues. There is pressure not only to make referrals appropriate, but also to summarize the case in the language of the specialist. Cardiology Explained is an essential tool in this task. It explains the basic physiology and pathophysiologic mechanisms of cardiovascular disease in a straightforward and diagrammatic manner, gives guidelines as to when referral is appropriate, and, uniquely, explains what the specialist is likely to do. This facilitates an understanding of the specialty not available from standard textbooks. With wide appeal, this book is ideal for any hospital doctor, generalist, or even senior medical student who may need a cardiology opinion; or for that matter, anyone who simply wants some of cardiology - explained.
