Cardiology An Illustrated Textbook PDF Free Download
Cardiology—An Illustrated Textbook is a revived but really a new textbook in cardiology. “Cardiology” was initially published as a loose-leaf referenced textbook. In 1993, it was published as a hard copy illustrated and referenced textbook. Since its publication, almost two decades ago, there have been enormous advances in every aspect of cardiology. Substantial progress has occurred in the understanding of coronary circulation, the molecular mechanisms of myocyte function and in the assessment of regional and global ventricular functions in physiologic and pathologic conditions. In this textbook, these advances have been emphasized. The advances in cardiovascular pharmacology have also been considerable. The advantages and disadvantages of diuretic therapy, vasodilators, neurohormone modulators, positive inotropic agents, antilipid, antithrombotic and antiplatelet agents have been discussed. The clinical pharmacology of these agents in the management of various cardiovascular disorders has been emphasized.
