Based on the most recent guidelines in cardiovascular pharmacology, and containing a comprehensive 350-page A-Z formulary of common and less commonly used cardiac drugs and drug groups, Drugs in Cardiology provides practical and accessible guidance on all areas of drug prescribing. Containing independently verified pharmacological data, up-to-date evidence for the clinical uses of specific drugs, and references to the most important clinical trials, it is written from both a clinical and pharmacological perspective, and has been thoroughly reviewed by a panel of consultant cardiologists, making it an essential reference tool for all healthcare professionals involved in cardiovascular pharmacology. Written in the popular Oxford Handbook style to allow quick access to information, the book contains chapters on major clinical conditions, including heart failure, hypertension and pregnancy, giving practical guidance on appropriate treatments in these areas. It also includes numerous flow charts for quick reference and contains an indispensable appendix of information on non-cardiac drugs which affect the heart.
