DOODY’s 3 STAR - Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of the Hypertensive Patient, First Edition

“The 16 well-chosen chapters follow a very interesting format: a brief introduction followed by question-based analysis. Invariably, I found the questions to be very relevant and practical. References are concise and reasonably up to date. Topics range from how to set goals for treatment, an update on the latest trials, and in-depth chapters on the major class of antihypertensive drugs. A couple of interesting and timely chapters cover hypertension in athletes and in patients with sleep apnea.”

“The book is targeted primarily at primary care physicians and physician extenders. However, some interesting chapters easily can be enjoyed by hypertension specialists. The two authors/editors are very well known in the field of hypertension.”
