Thoroughly updated for its Third Edition, this pocket-sized handbook provides easy access to clinical trial data that are crucial in therapeutic decision-making. The book enables clinicians to quickly review the studies that support or refute an intervention and choose the most appropriate, cost-effective treatment. Each chapter summarises the pathophysiology of a disease and guideline-recommended diagnostic tests and treatments, and presents synopses of the major clinical trials for all therapies. New sections in this Third Edition cover peripheral artery disease and drug-eluting stents. This edition also features expanded coverage of pacers and ICDs and an expanded section on preventive pre-hospital cardiology.
