Reviews

This is a much needed and timely revision of an important text on coronary care. Jointly written by a nurse and a doctor, it provides up to date coverage of this rapidly changing speciality and offers a multi-disciplinary approach to coronary care and treatment. Its language is clear and easy to understand. Management of a cardiac patient is a complex task, and this book offers clear and concise research-based information. The content has been updated in line with the latest guidelines, including specific guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. Sabina Ahmed, freelance health writerNursing Standard:: July 25:: vol 21 no 46:: 2007 This book stands out for its clarity and broad scope.
