An abundance of algorithms, case studies, and recommendations on evidence-based best practices facilitate rapid learning. A key resource for the busy practitioner, this book is designed to give the reader the skills to confidently perform assessments, initiate and maintain efficacious therapy, and know when a referral to a cardiologist is advisable.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Dr. Toth from Sterling Illinois has done quite well for the primary care physician with aid from of Dr. Cannon from Harvard. … Awareness of national guidelines, evidence based medicine, incorporation of the results of clinical trials and scientific clinical investigation become indispensable not only for the good of patients but also for malpractice protection of the physician. … This book will not only guide the primary care physician appropriately but also help to bring all of optimal cardiovascular care providers into cooperative working arrangements.” (William H. Wehrmacher and Harry Messmore, Comprehensive Therapy, November, 2010)

“This is an extraordinarily useful distillation of cardiology medicine for those who are not interested in or have time for a comprehensive textbook with all the fundamental scientific background. It is a practical, everyday, in-practice book. … As the title states, this is targeted at primary care clinicians, which it does very well. … an absolute gem for primary care clinicians, as it gives practical guidance without overstating the vast literature being published monthly. … a highly worthwhile publication for every primary care clinician’s library.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2011)
