Handbook of Ambulatory Cardiology Editorial Review: This practical, concise guide concentrates on common conditions, rather than on rare diseases or unusual presentations of common diseases. The basic methods of patient evaluation are also stressed. The first chapter introduces the ADVIsE approach that is used throughout the book. Following the step wise approach, the second chapter covers the medical history and the physical exam. Chapter three outlines the ECG and the chest X-ray and chapter four covers the other tests. Chapter five presents the diagnosis and management of specific disorders grouped under the five key features. The addendum includes extensive charts on differential diagnosis of basic symptom presentations associated with the key features. The handbook employs an organized approach that can be applied to every patient and catalogues every drug, with its dosage and associated risk factors. It is aimed specifically at the non-specialist.
