Evidence-Based Cardiology, 3rd Edition
Salim Yusuf (Editor), John Cairns (Editor), John Camm (Editor), Ernest L. Fallen (Editor), Bernard J. Gersh (Editor)
Pub Date:2010, BMJ Books
Evidence based Cardiology was first published in 1998 to universal acclaim. Now, with the move towards more patient focused health care and at the same time increased emphasis on health economics, evidence-based practice is a more important force in health care delivery than ever.
This new third edition, written by the world’s leading cardiologists, provides graded evidence-based reviews of the major trials together with recommendations for optimum management, and now includes new grading and recommendation methodology.
This is a unique book in the field of cardiology, and the largest evidence based clinical cardiology text
