The first book developed specifically for hospitalists managing the growing number of patients with cardiovascular disorders

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of hospitalization and mortality worldwide, and will account for approximately twenty million deaths in 2015. Due to this growing problem, many patients are being managed by non–cardiovascular physicians in the inpatient setting. As a result, hospitalists and other inpatient physicians without specialized training in cardiology are faced with uncertainty when contemplating the proper management of these patients.

This book focuses on inpatient cardiovascular medicine in a highly algorithmic and evidence–based approach, so that users will be able to care for their hospitalized patients directly, using the best contemporary evidence available. It emphasizes the practical, immediate application of principles and treatment recommendations into everyday clinical inpatient practice, while simplifying the approach to these patients by utilizing visual aids such as carefully designed charts, illustrations, and diagrams.
