From the Back Cover:

Heart failure is a devastating disease of epidemic proportions.Physicians are faced with an increasingly large choice of treatmentoptions and questions including: how different genetic, racial andgender backgrounds can influence a patient’s response; how tomonitor treatment once it has begun; and what side-effects can beexpected from these agents.

Heart Failure: Pharmacologic Management is the essentialguide for physicians working with these issues to optimise theiruse of pharmacologic therapy for patients with heart failure.

This extensively referenced text provides both the biologic andpathologic underpinning for the use of eachpharmacologic agentcurrently recommended, including the clinical investigations thathave led to our understanding of the risks and benefits associatedwith the use of these drugs. In addition, this book reviews severalareas, including vasopressin antagonists, that are under activeinvestigation, but which are expected to prove fruitful in thetherapy of patients with heart failure.

Heart Failure: Pharmacologic Management is written byindividuals with extensive expertise within the field and is theonly text to focus on pharmacologic therapy. It will assist thepractitioner in easily making sense of the extensive number oftreatment agents available and should be considered a vitalcontribution to your bookshelf.
