Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The Facts:
* 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 Good:
* The basic science section covers a wide range of useful topics e.g.
o Adult anatomy
o Foetal anatomy
o Physiology
o Arrhythmias
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.

The Bad:
* There is significant lack of colour and images after the Basic Sciences section

The Verdict:
* 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.

This book is quite different to any other! Suitable for cardiology trainees, general practitioners and nurse practitioners with an interest in cardiology, this book takes a `real world' approach to cardiovascular medicine. In 26 case scenarios the authors cover the common (and less common) cardiac diagnoses. Each case focuses on the history, interpretation of physical signs and appropriate use of non-invasive and invasive tests whilst discussing differential diagnoses on the way. At the end of each case treatment options are discussed including lifestyle changes, and prognosis. Each case concludes with a summary and key take home messages. At the back of the book is a self-assessment section with MCQ's, EMQ's and SAQ's.
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!

I received this title whilst a medical student to review for the publisher and complete this review now as a junior doctor.

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.
