* Cardiology Clinical Cases Uncovered uses clinical cases to teach the core topics in cardiology
* It contains and introductory "Basic Science"
* The main bulk of the book is the 26 clinical cases covering a wide range of topics in cardiology
* The basic science section covers a wide range of useful topics e.g.
o Adult anatomy
o Foetal anatomy
o Valve lesions
* The cases provided cover a large number of the key presentation and conditions in cardiology
* The cases are very easy to read - it feels like reading a story
* At the end of the chapter there is a brief summary of the case and a list of key points to take away.
* The book has a selection of multiple choice, extended matching and short answer questions.
* There is significant lack of colour and images after the Basic Sciences section
* This book definitely takes a novel approach to the teaching of cardiology
* Rather than learning about clinical presentations and conditions in isolation, these topics are taught via carefully selected cases.
* This book would be best used as a revision aid once a solid knowledge base had been established from other more conventional textbooks.
The authors should be congratulated for providing comprehensive case scenarios aiding `decision making' skills and for exploring and covering so much material in such a small volume. A `must read' for trainees!
Sarah Clarke, Consultant Cardiologist, Papworth Hospital, Cambridge.
I would personally strongly recommend nearly all of the titles in the Clinical Cases Uncovered series to medical students as a useful read and for junior doctors if you are wishing to swat up on an area they are useful as well. This title covering common Cardiology presentations starts by going through basic science related to Cardiology before approaching each of them in turn, there is a good level of detail provided with each of the cases without them becoming too long and like a text book. There is a reasonable usage of diagrams within the title to help convey important information, good quality images such as angiograms, echocardiogram images and ECG tracings included in the title which allow you to practice reading these. The title seems to cover the differences in practice that exist between district general hospitals that lack the ability to perform primary percutaneous coronary intervention and larger hospitals that can by discussing where applicable the different treatment options that are available.
As with other titles in this series it would have been useful to have had a recommended reading section at the end of each of the cases. However, unlike some of the other titles, this one does usefully include a self-assessment section at the end of the title that allows you to assess your knowledge after reading the title.
In conclusion this title is well worth buying/getting from your library if it is available as it is a useful title for anyone wishing to swat up on their knowledge of the common cardiology presentations and their management.
