Cardiovascular Risk Management provides a comprehensive, practical, easy–reference guide to encourage appropriate management of cardiovascular disease and implementation of the many guidelines and risk assessment methods available for this purpose.

This brand new book enables doctors to prioritise treatment using risk–scoring systems and holistic recommendations for reducing cardiovascular risk, providing an overview of why it is important to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease, how to achieve this and the key cardiovascular guidelines available. It includes core guideline recommendations and areas of discrepancy between guidelines, the different risk calculators, treatment recommendations and emerging risk factors and therapies, as well as treatment plans for individuals with diabetes who are at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

This is an ideal text for general practitioners, junior doctors, medical students and nurses.

"An updated text, which has the merit of taking stock of the situation in a field, the management of cardiovascular risk, where the fast and sudden classification of the patient is essential . . . In conclusion, the work is properly addressed to all those who wish to have an overview of the management of patients at risk for cardiovascular disease, including nuclear physicians involved in nuclear cardiology."
