Cardiovascular disease is one of the most common causes of premature death throughout the developed world and it is also rapidly increasing in the developing world. The condition significantly impacts on every aspect of the patient's life. Additionally many patients who have concurrent health problems may require cardiac management whilst undergoing other specialist treatments. Patients with cardiac disease are managed across a variety of settings, from acute tertiary specialist centres, to general medical wards and in primary care. The Oxford Handbook of Cardiac Nursing provides a systematic account of the main areas of cardiac nursing including assessment, investigation, treatment, rehabilitation, and pharmacological interventions. Although a large part of the handbook focuses on caring for patients with coronary heart disease, many other cardiovascular problems such as valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, and cardiomyopathies are covered. The book is clearly laid out with one topic per page, and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages for writing notes, observations and local protocols allow the handbook to be customised to meet local needs.All this is available in a handy, pocket-sized book with hard-wearing plastic covers. Written by practising nurses and subject experts, the Oxford Handbook of Cardiac Nursing is a unique and invaluable companion for novice and experienced practitioners, and for all health care professionals who are involved in the care of cardiac patients in all settings.

About the Author:

Kate Johnson has worked in cardiac nursing since 1989, working in a variety of cardiac settings such as coronary care, cardiac intensive care, cardiac surgery and cardiac rehabilitation. She moved into higher education in 1998 and has been running cardiac courses for qualified nurses since then. In 2005 she was asked to help set up a national cardiac nursing journal which commenced in January 2006. She is now the Editor in Chief of the journal. Karen Rawlings-Anderson qualified as a registered nurse in 1982 and has worked in cardiac surgical, intensive care, coronary care and interventional cardiology units. She has many years experience in nurse education and has been responsible for developing and managing post registration cardiac courses during this time. She is currently the Programme Director for MSc Nursing at City University and is particularly interested in ensuring that nurses who work in clinical areas have access to relevant, readable and up to date information relating to their practice. She is also a member of the Editorial Board of the British Journal of Cardiac Nursing.

Review:

...an excellent resource for clinical nursing staff involved in the wide spectrum of cardiac medicine and surgery practice. This is a handbook covering basic but pertinent information in a handy pocket-sized format. I would welcome such an adjunct to my own practice and would recommend it to clinical nursing staff. Anne-Marie Ingle, Cardiology News
