Lecture Notes on Cardiology, fourth edition, is a comprehensive introduction to one of the most rapidly changing specialities in clinical medicine. The completely new author team has produced an informative and highly accessible book, presenting clinical cardiology in a way that relates disease to underlying pathophysiological mechanisms, and linking this directly to the patient, their disease and its management. This new edition has been produced in response to the exciting new developments in all areas of cardiology. It has been completely revised and rewritten, with an emphasis on recent major clinical trials relating to cardiology and the huge advances made in cardiac imaging techniques. These concepts are fully illustrated and a colour plate section has been added to show emergent techniques, including Doppler imaging and MRI. The succinct and topical content of this book means that it will not only appeal to the undergraduate medical student, but also to the junior doctor studying for higher examinations.

One of the most time-consuming tasks in clinical medicine is seeking the opinions of specialist colleagues. There is a pressure not only to make referrals appropriate but also to summarize the case in the language of the specialist. This book explains basic physiologic and pathophysiologic mechanisms of cardiovascular disease in a straightforward manner, gives guidelines as to when referral is appropriate, and, uniquely, explains what the specialist is likely to do. It is ideal for any hospital doctor, generalist, or even senior medical student who may need a cardiology opinion, or for that ma.

Many noninvasive examination methods of the heart have not held out against the invasive methods, which modern cardiac therapy, surgically or with catheterization, requires. They have disappeared completely or are only used by isolated groups of researchers. However, there is an obvious tendency to apply the invasive procedures as the last diagnostic possibility. In the attempt to select clinically relevant methods, the expert authors of this book demonstrate that echocardiography, expanded with contrast and Doppler, has been developed into one of the most important noninvasive methods. The results with tissue characterization show that the possibilities of this method have not yet been fully explored. Nuclear procedures are widely used, although they should only be applied in direct connection with clinical cardiology. The new lead methods of the ecg, such as ecg-mapping, show that standard electrocardiography of electrical functions is not yet fully exploited. The rapidly developing method of computer tomography is also being applied to cardiology. Since nuclear magnetic resonance requires extensive equipment con struction, its future is as yet unsure. Of course, a book like this does not intend to treat the subject of noninvasive cardiology in extensive detail. Established methods like standard electrocardio graphy, phonocardiography and sphygmography are not discussed. The aim of this book is rather to demonstrate the trend of present developments in the field.
