Klappentext

Aim of the volume is to give an overview of the state of the art on the emerging cardiac pathologies such as acute coronary syndromes, atrial fibrillation, sudden death, heart failure, global cardiovascular prevention and syncope.

The volume chapters, written by leading experts in these fields, offer the latest information about epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and novel treatments of these pathologies.

Addressed to cardiologists, internists, first aid clinicians, practitioners, it will be very helpful also for residents, nurses and all health professionals involved in the management of cardiac pathologies.
