These 21 succinct, scholarly discussions on clinically important topics in cardiology are designed for primary care practitioners in general medical practice. The course is recommended for nurses, pharmacists, and paramedical personnel concerned with care of cardiac patients. However, this sophisticated presentation is suitable for internists needing a refresher course in basic cardiology, and for senior medical students taking a cardiology elective. Topics include the evaluation and treatment of ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, dilated cardiomyopathy, and hypertension. Individual chapters cover cardiac history and physical examination, management of noncardiac surgery and pregnancy, cardiac imaging, and the use of pacemakers. Material
