Abstract

This new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Cardiac Nursing includes expanded information on prevention of cardiovascular disease and heart disease in pregnancy, as well as the latest resuscitation guidelines, protocols, and clinical information. It covers assessment, investigation, treatment, rehabilitation, and pharmacological interventions, and new illustrations and diagrams have been added throughout to aid clarity of information. Although a large part of it focuses on caring for patients with coronary heart disease, many other cardiovascular problems, such as valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, and cardiomyopathies are covered. Designed to be used on the ward, in the community, and for studying and revision, it contains expert guidance, written by experienced nurses and teachers. This resource is specifically laid out to enable quick access to precise, targeted information, and covers the vast majority of clinical scenarios.
