"The Pocketbook of Cardiology" is designed to provide the practical information required for managing cardiology in-patients and out-patients. This includes sections on dealing with common out-patient consultations, common interspecialty referrals, cardiological problems on the cardiac surgery unit, acute cardiological emergencies, and terminal care in cardiology. Also, as cardiology is a specialty with a high technical content, sections are included that provide the core information relating to the common technical subspecialties - echocardiography, cardiac catheterisation and catheter intervention, pacing and electrophysiology. Finally, a technical data section provides details of normal values for cardiac catheterisation, echocardiography and electrocardiography.
