A desire to avoid the massive social and financial costs associated with cardiovascular diseases has promoted a continued interest in preventive cardiology. Recent intervention studies have shown that the progress of these disorders may be arrested and potentially reversed. Other investigations have shown that primary prevention of cardiovascular disease is feasible using simple interventions.

This book provides a comprehensive approach to cardiovascular wellness from a clinical perspective. Perhaps the most valuable area covered is the comprehensive presentation of a clinical prevention program. This includes guidelines for designing and operating a preventive cardiology clinic, core concepts, an outline of algorithm–driven clinical practice, and a look at such issues as patient flow and resource requirements.
