About this book

Cardiovascular pharmacotherapy is a fast-moving and complex discipline within cardiology in general. New studies, trials and indications are appearing on a regular basis. This series, and this particular title within the series, is designed to establish the baseline level of knowledge that a cardiovascular professional needs to know on a day-to-day basis. The information within is designed to allow readers to learn quickly and with certainty the mode of action, the possible adverse effects, and the management of patients prescribed these drugs. The emphasis is on current practice, but with an eye to the near-future direction of treatment. This book is intended to update clinicians on recent data on the medical management of patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes. Alongside each book in the series, this title has been established to allow rapid publication of new editions to cover developments in the field.
