Practical Cardiology

M Gabriel Khan
  • The practical substance of this text is aimed at all doctors who assess, and prescribe for patients with cardiovascular problems. 
  • The book tells you which drugs are best choice and which are not advisable; for example, atenolol a most used beta blocker is not recommended; angiotensin receptor blockers are poorly effective, but are overly prescribed.
  • One million diabetics die annually in India and 1.5 million in China. The author has recently shown that diabetics have high blood sitosterol and advises on therapy for diabetic sitosterolemia.
  • The chapters on ECG Interpretation Made Easy, Arrhythmias Diagnosis and Treatment are packed with practical steps.
  • The chapter on Chest X-ray Interpretation is a surprise; the heart and lung move in concert.
  • Bulleted statements allow rapid retrieval.
