  • Description
  • Details

This handbook provides a systematic account of the main areas of cardiac nursing including assessment, investigation, treatment, rehabilitation, and pharmacological interventions. Cardiac nurses in all settings will find this a practical and evidence-based summary of the relevant issues related to the appropriate care of their patients.

Although a large part of the handbook 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. The book is clearly laid out with one topic per page, and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages for writing notes, observations and local protocols allow the handbook to be customised to meet local needs. All this is available in a handy, pocket-sized book with hard-wearing plastic covers. Written by practising nurses and subject experts, the "Oxford Handbook of Cardiac Nursing" is a unique and invaluable companion for novice and experienced practitioners, and for all health care professionals who are involved in the care of cardiac patients in all settings.
