About this book

This specialized reference textbook presents the physiological and pathophysiological aspects of cardiovascular diseases affecting the athlete population. The first part is a systematic explanation of the non-invasive and invasive diagnostic techniques used in cardiology. The second part examines the clinical approach to a great majority of the cardiological problems that involve the athlete population. All of the fields discussed in this textbook are treated from physiological and pathophysiological viewpoints, including the clinical and legal implications of athletes affected by diagnosed or unsuspected cardiovascular diseases. As such, this book is a particularly useful contribution to the literature for health care professionals, especially cardiologists (also fellows) and sports medicine physicians, providing them with the knowledge to make critical decisions regarding eligibility, thus preventing tragic events, and especially sudden death the most crucial event in sport.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a comprehensive review of the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease in patients who engage in athletic activity. … The book is written for medical students, physicians in training, midlevels, and practitioners in adult and pediatric cardiology and sports medicine. … This is a high-quality book that offers clinical information to arm healthcare providers with a sound knowledge base to address, diagnose, and treat cardiovascular problems in patients engaged in sports.” (Cory Adam Waldman, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2013)
