About this book

Introduction

Here is a practical guide giving you systematic strategies for correctly diagnosing heart disease. The emphasis is on the patient's history and the physical examination, the two cornerstones of medical diagnosis. These are correlated with knowledge of the natural history of disease and the physical findings of subsequent examination techniques. The role of current examination technology - both invasive and noninvasive - is discussed. Important advances in the field, including procedures such as echocardiography, transesophageal probe, exercise electrocardiography, nuclear ventriculography and magnetic resonance imaging, are taken into consideration. The book covers all major heart diseases and is liberally illustrated.
