Acute cardiology problems often need quick, appropriate, diagnosis and treatment. With the increasing complexity and rapidly-changing nature of available therapies, knowing which to use and in what situation can be difficult. The freshly updated Emergencies in Cardiology, Second Edition, provides an easily-accessible guide to diagnosing and managing acute cardiovascular problems, incorporating both symptom-based and disease-based sections. Cross-referenced to the Oxford Handbook of Cardiology, this handbook allows rapid access to accurate, up-to-date information. There are specific sections on the management of cardiovascular problems in pregnancy and adult congenital heart disease, in addition to more practical sections on how to perform emergency cardiology procedures and ECG recognition.
The book is designed for busy medical and cardiology teams, with bullet-point information for speed and clarity combined with the integral cross-referencing system, enabling quick access to the necessary information.
• Senior clinicians present invaluable advice gained from personal experience, and illustrated with real cases
• Practical, concise and up to date information on acute cardiology problems
• A series of four icons clearly distinguish the degree of urgency with which the emergency must be treated
• Every topic starts on a new page to aid ease of use
• A specific section on establishing the diagnosis
• Includes an ECG library for instant recognition of ECG diagnoses and a section to guide practical procedures
New to this edition

The app: "Cardiology 3D small animals(1)" allows you to scan QR codes of the Introduction and Acquire
diseases and the app: "Cardiology 3D small animals (2)" allows you to scan QR codes of the Congenital diseases.
Once the app is launched on a mobile device, the user only needs to scan the QR codes that appear in the book in order to visualise different dynamic 3D images of the heart and its diseases. Thanks to this app, veterinary surgeons will be able to visualise each disease in three dimensions, which will give them a better understanding of its physiopathology and, as a result, of the aims of the treatment.
Readers will therefore be able to see –and almost touch– the normal heart floating on the book as well as the physiopathological changes the organ undergoes in case of congestive heart failure. They will also be able to see the most common acquired and congenital diseases in the dog and the cat, and relate the images obtained with echocardiography, the only imaging technique that allows us to visualise the functioning heart in our daily practice, to the augmented-reality tridimensional structure.

Cardiovascular disease remains the major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout developed countries and is also rapidly increasing in developing countries. Cardiovascular medicine and the specialty of cardiology continue to expand, and the remit of the cardiologist is forever broader with the development of new sub-specialties. The Oxford Handbook of Cardiology provides a comprehensive but concise guide to all modern cardiological practice with an emphasis on practical clinical management in many different contexts. This second edition addresses all the key advances made in the field since the previous edition, including interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and pharmacology. It expands the remit to medical students and the more junior doctor while retaining the level of detail required by more senior practitioners within the field.
-Provides rapid access to essential clinical information for use on the wards and in the clinic
-Includes specialist sections on common diagnostic tests, management of cardiac problems in pregnancy, and cardiology in developing countries
-Assists readers in unfamiliar territory and is the perfect aide-memoire for the basics
New to this edition:
-Addresses all the recent key advances in the fields of interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and pharmacology
-Now more relevant to medical students and junior doctors, but still retains the level of detail required by more senior practitioners within the field
-Features a major new chapter on drugs for the heart, and includes specific sections on hypertension management and hyperlipidaemia management
Readership: Cardiology trainees and junior doctor as well as consultant cardiologists
Audience: This Oxford Handbook is intended for a UK audience as well as other areas which follow UK medical practice including Europe, Australia, the Middle East, India and East Asia.
