About this book

Over the past decades the medical care of patients with cardiovascular disease has improved exponentially with significant benefits to mortality, morbidity and the quality of life of coronary patients. Modern cardiac rehabilitation and preventative cardiology have been and continue to be crucial to these improvements.

Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation is a timely and thorough review of prevention, lifestyle counseling and rehabilitation for cardiologists and all physicians and other health professionals in cardiac rehabilitation teams. The Editors have gathered over 60 experts from all parts of the globe, each highlighting the role of cardiac rehabilitation and preventative cardiology from exercise testing and training, through nutrition, smoking cessation, behavioral and social support to adapted programs for newer groups with specific demands, such as the elderly, patients with implantable devices and patients after cardiac transplantation. Importantly, much emphasis is placed on the organizational aspects of cardiac rehabilitation, including quality assurance and economic evaluation.

Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation has been carefully and thoughtfully structured to provide practical guidance for all cardiologists and other health personnel engaged in the management of cardiac patients.
