Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Heart Failure®

Heart failure causes approximately 300,000 deaths each year in the United States alone. But heart failure does not always lead to death. Managing the condition is complex, and requires the clinician to be knowledgeable about the most current treatment options. This handbook examines the intricacies of managing patients with heart failure, including pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment options. Special attention is given to the treatment of concurrent, perhaps precipitous, conditions such as hypertension. Third edition; 326 pages.
