The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination is the latest edition of this essential guide to identifying the signs and symptoms of heart diseases.
The book is divided into 14 chapters, initially covering different types of pulse and the measurement of blood pressure. A chapter on heart sounds is followed by a three-part discussion on heart murmurs, including the use of recordings of heart sounds and video recordings of jugular pulsations. The signs and symptoms of cardiac disease are covered in detail, and the manifestations of cardiovascular disease are described. The book concludes with two chapters on electrocardiography (ECG).
Finally, the book provides a self-assessment chapter, with clinical scenarios which use history and clinical findings from actual patients. Enhanced by nearly 100 full colour images and illustrations and edited by a team of cardiology experts based in Toronto and Chicago, The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination is ideal for cardiologists and general physicians wishing to keep their knowledge of examination for heart disease up to date.
