Focusing on inpatient cardiovascular medicine in a highly algorithmic and evidence-based approach, Inpatient Cardiovascular Medicine is the first book developed specifically to help hospitalists manage the rapidly growing population of hospitalized patients who present with cardiovascular disorders. Emphasizing practical, immediate application of principles and treatment recommendations into everyday clinical inpatient practice, the book simplifies the approach to these patients using visual aids such as carefully designed charts, illustrations, and diagrams.
