Description

Cardiac Care provides a quick and simple reference guide for clinicians to enable them to provide effective and evidence-based practice in cardiac care. This book recognizes that most people suffering from chronic heart disease are cared for outside specialist coronary care units and it is very difficult for clinicians new to cardiac care to ensure an adequate knowledge base in all areas.  As such, a wide variety of nurses and other health professionals require a comprehensive, accessible resource to understand this disease.  This book is written by experienced clinicians who are able to take the reader step-by-step through the patient journey, providing an overview of the fundamental aspects of cardiac care.
