Cardiology: Clinical Cases Uncovered is the ideal integrated text to help you recognize, understand and know how to investigate and manage many heart–related disorders and conditions. Written by three practising cardiologists, it leads students through a clinical approach to managing problems with 26 real–world cardiovascular cases. There is strong emphasis on high–quality figures, particularly 12–lead ECGs, as these play such a major role in the evaluation of the cardiac patient.

Following a question–answer approach throughout the narrative, with self–assessment MCQs, EMQs and SAQs, Cardiology: Clinical Cases Uncovered includes sections on cardiac anatomy, physiology and pathology which provide the essentials required to understand clinical cardiology, and is ideal for medical students and junior doctors on the Foundation Programme, specialist nurses and nurse practitioners, and for those with plans for a career in cardiology.
