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.

A dense but very well written and clear read. Super helpful in cardiology block. I never buy/read text books but this is one I don't regret in the slightest.

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.

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.

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.

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.

You're making a huge mistake if you haven't read this book as a medical student June 12 2014
By Clive Revill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If there is one book you should read cover-to-cover as a preclinical medical student, it's this book. I don't care how your curriculum is set up, but when you are studying heart disease, this is the book you should have and it should be your chief source. Hopefully your school knows how awesome this book is and has it listed as the required reading for your cardio block.

This is, hands-down, the best textbook I have read in medical school. It goes into just enough depth with the concepts without diving too deeply into physiology that isn't important or practical. It is comprehensive enough that you don't need any other source, really, when studying cardiovascular pathophysiology. The chapter on EKGs is probably the only exception, because Dubin's book is superior and more idiot-proof. But overall, you will be a rock star if you read this thing cover-to-cover. It also sets up a tremendously strong foundation of knowledge for when you later hunker down to study for Step 1. A good understanding of the principles laid out in this book virtually ensures a strong performance on cardiology that will appear on Step 1.

Aside from the terrific content, the layout is nice, and it is very readable. So many useful diagrams and pictures.

So, in summation, if you are a preclinical med student, buy this book and read it. It's amazing.
