The Junior Doctor’s Guide to Cardiology PDF Free Download
These books oft en list countless investigations and areas of management for specifi c medical conditions. However, they lack explanation of the results you should expect to obtain from these investigations, and their interpretation in the clinical context. We have written this book to act as a ‘user’s guide’ for junior doctors for day- to- day clinical cardiology while they are out on the wards. It should provide a logical stepwise guide through the more common problems encountered in cardiology, and support the junior doctor with their clinical practice and decision making. We have all been in the situation where, as a junior, we request an investigation not because we are looking for a highly specifi c answer, but because our consultant has asked us to request it. We believe that this book helps to explain the reasons why an investigation is requested, and provides a basic understanding of how to interpret the result. Furthermore, we have included chapters covering areas such as successful ward rounds and safe prescribing in cardiology, which should further off er support for you as a junior doctor.
