About this book

Cardiac Drug Therapy, 7th ed., addresses the pharmacology and therapeutic application of drugs used to treat heart diseases and hypertension. Additions and updates to the sixth edition include six new chapters on current controversies in cardiac drug therapy such as the beta blocker issue many cardiologists are presently grappling with. The book provides practical advice on how to manage cardiac diseases and addresses the choice of one particular cardiac agent vs. another. In addition to providing core knowledge in cardiovascular therapeutics, the text assists in resolving some of the issues surrounding cardiac drugs. Cardiac Drug Therapy provides practical information including properties, dosage, side effects, potential salutary benefits, and drawbacks on virtually all commercially available cardiac drugs. The text is succinct and straightforward, and highlighted throughout with bullet points that enable rapid-retrieval of clinically relevant information.

Reviews

From the reviews of the seventh edition:

"...summarizing the rapidly evolving pharmacologic options available for the treatment of cardiovascular disease." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:92 - 4 Stars

"...a valuable clinical reference" -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:92 - 4 Stars

"This publication focuses on cardiac pharmacotherapy. The intended audience for this text includes cardiologists, internists, and medical residents. The author’s intent is to help physicians understand the pharmacotherapy of various diseases and the differences within cardiovascular drug classes that impact drug selection. … The references … are reasonably updated and predominantly use tertiary sources. … has many useful observations and more drug information than most physician-written books. … This is an interesting book that provides decent clinical and clinical trial observations … ." (C Michael White, The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, Vol. 41, 2007)
