Cardiac care is set in context through examination of the impact of political and social influences, coupled with the development of healthcare technology. Fundamentals of cardiology and cardiac care such as health promotion, anatomy, physiology, and the assessment of patients are discussed. Pathophysiology, presentation and treatment of specific conditions are also explored.

The editors and contributors all have years of experience caring for patients with cardiac disorders.  They have all witnessed the terrible impact of cardiac disease on patients and their families and believe passionately that the provision of holistic, evidence-based care can ease that burden.

This book provides healthcare professionals who have little or no knowledge of cardiac disorders, a basic grounding in the underlying pathophysiology of the disease, and an understanding of available treatments.  For more experienced practitioners this book provides an accessible and interesting update on the latest research trends in the fast-moving speciality of cardiac care. Readers are able to ‘dip in’ at any point to access information easily to find out about a particular aspect about cardiac care.

The layout and content of Cardiac Care: An Introduction for Healthcare Professionals makes the information easily accessible and applicable to practice, whilst also being informing and educating about this fascinating specialty.
