Psychiatry and Heart Disease is a pioneering book connecting the heart and brain, from basic science to clinical management of conditions that affect millions of patients around the world. The interplay between psychiatric problems, particularly depression, and cardiovascular disease, with each increasing susceptibility to the other, has been established in recent years. This unique book features chapters co–authored by psychiatrists and cardiovascular specialists , combining their expertise to provide guidance on the best way to manage such patients, considering the patient as a whole, not the individual conditions.

The book starts with the association between cardiovascular risk factors, heart diseases, and psychological distress. It then describes important psychiatric issues that arise in patients undergoing cardiac transplantation, following resuscitated sudden death, after implantation of defibrillator devices, and in patients with pulmonary hypertension.

The second half of the book addresses the differences between symptoms of cardiovascular and psychological disorders, the management of the patient with bipolar disorder, the relationship of sleep with cardiovascular disease, and post traumatic stress syndrome. A common problem, cardiovascular manifestations of patients with panic and anxiety syndromes, is covered in exquisite detail. Lastly, the authors have offered interesting discussions on genetic susceptibility, psychosocial symptoms from medications and psychiatric drugs, and the contributions of exercise, fitness and smoking cessation.

Each chapter contains basic information on the cardiovascular problem aimed at the psychiatrist and basic information on the psychiatric problems aimed at the cardiologists and primary care clinicians. The pathobiology of the interaction between psychological and cardiovascular disorders is reviewed within each chapter. The book is clinically oriented, including short vignettes, and summary points for quick review.

"This book will serve as a handy reference for multi–disciplinary clinicians with cardiac patients and has already proved useful to my everyday practice." (Psychological Medicine, June 2013)

"Overall, the chapters are well written and extremely pertinent for psychologists in cardiac settings. The authors draw attention to a wide array of problems and they propose concrete solutions for clinicians working with cardiac patients. They cite pertinent research and they underscore the lack of sufficient empirical evidence where such penuries exist, all of which is helpful to clinicians and researchers in the field." (Canadian Psychology, 2012)

This book is revolutionary in its organized and detailed presentation. Its unique approach to describing the evidence–based literature while using cases and references will deepen readers′ understanding of widely researched topics in the areas of psychiatric disorders and cardiovascular disease.   (Doody s, 26 October 2012)

This volume is a Herculean effort to assist psychiatrists in understanding the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease and recognizing the unique challenges for patients and physicians alike.  It is a valuable resource not only for the consultation–liaison psychiatrist, but for any mental health practitioner, primary care physician, or cardiologist.   (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 7 July 2012)

The book is concisely and clearly written and contains numerous references.   (Book News, 1 April 2012)
