The Cardiovascular System At A Glance combines the concise style of the 'At A Glance' series with a systemic approach in line with the new teaching programs now in place at most medical schools around the world.
The text progresses from basic science to clinical application: a general introduction to the cardiovascular system is followed by anatomy and histology; blood and body fluids; biochemistry and excitation-contraction coupling; form and function; integration and regulation; pathology and therapeutics; and case studies.
The five authors, from St Thomas' and Guy's (London) and John Hopkins (Baltimore), have between them more than 40 years' experience in teaching the cardiovascular system, and have all been instrumental in the move from subject-based to system-based learning at their medical schools.
This book will be of interest to medical students at all levels and to students of other health professions needing an introduction to the cardiovascular system.

Summary: The fourth edition of this highly popular book has been extensively revised. The first chapter, a revision of the immune system, has been updated to provide the 'nitty-gritty'a student or trainee needs to know in order to understand diseases that have an immunological basis. The rest of the book's focus is clinical but covers the underlying pathophysiology of disease so that the reader is left with a lasting grasp of the basis of symptoms, signs, special investigations and management of the patient. It will be of great value to medical students and postgraduate trainees who require a thorough knowledge of the rapidly expanding number of diseases that have an immunological basis.".
