5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for Cardiology March 13 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is an excellent choice for medical student studying the cardiovascular system. I highly recommend using this (even as a sole source) because it includes basic normal physiology prior to going into pathology. It also has a nice pharmacology chapter which is a good resource to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book July 2 2012
By Roxy Zimmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am an electrical engineer with experience in heart related medical device systems, with no biology background. I have tried many books over the years to help understand the ideas presented by the clinical staff. They are all too complicated to follow. This book very systematically moves through basic ideas with concise, yet elaborate descriptions of main ideas that would help one follow more sophisticated topics about various reasons for different heart problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars No online access for book Dec 11 2010
By Zsuzsanna Pearson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The book is great but beware, even though the book says "Resources for students: fully searchable online eBook" - there is NO online ebook access - I e-mailed them about it 2 days ago but they didn't bother answering yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only can be described as AWESOME. Jan. 18 2011
By ECHOShaun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a totally awesome book. I am a cardiovascular technology student doing my echocardiography module, and this book has everything! It explains pathophysiology in a easy way; and in addition, gives the signs and symptoms and treatments for each disorder. This is a must read for anyone learning cardiology! It is my favorite book and has a special place on my bookshelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Cardio Text Nov. 5 2011
By MedStudent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This "text book" is an excellent, concise, and understandable text for first or second year medial students learning about cardiology. Each chapter clearly explains pathology, pathophysiology, patient presentation, physical exam findings, and treatment of a wide variety of cardiac pathologies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for cardio Nov. 7 2011
By Adiba Azad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I felt like I didn't really understand what exactly the different heart diseases were about (how they they arise, how they can be determined clinically and how they can be managed) from lectures and class notes. And I was very impressed with how this book filled in those gaps and much more. In general, a chapter is broken down to the physiology, pathophysiology and finally treatment/management of a particular disease process such as Hypertension or Heart Failure. It does an EXCELLENT job of explaining heart sounds and ECGs particularly because each of these topics have an introductory chapter discussing the fundamental concepts and an additional chapter or two on the various disease processes. For instance, there's a chapter on the basics of ECGs, a second chapter devoted to how arrhythmias form, and another on the clinically important arrhythmias.
This book however, isn't going to help with pathology but it I don't think it's meant to.
Bottom line: if you aren't satisfied with the way cardiovascular physiology is taught in school get this!
