This new volume in the Current Clinical Practice™ series puts the most important evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical guidelines together in one place. As a result, busy clinicians can go to one source when, in the care of a patient, a question arises that is best answered by an existing clinical guideline.

Among the topics covered in this volume are hyperlipidemia, management of newly diagnosed atrial fibrillation, antithrombotic therapy for venous thromboembolic disease and atrial fibrillation, and prevention of bacterial endocarditis. The book details treatment for asthma and infectious diseases ranging from pneumonia to tuberculosis to diarrhea. The volume also contains chapters on endocrinology, gynecology, neurology, and psychiatry.

With the busy clinician in mind, this book has been constructed from its origin to have a companion PDA resource, with summaries of the guidelines in this book and additional summaries of guidelines not included in the book. Together, these complimentary textbooks, in print and electronic format, should facilitate the implementation of nationally recognized clinical guidelines.
