The aim of the book is to serve as a practical guide for junior doctors, primary care physicians and cardiology trainees. This book is a quick reference in everyday clinical practice and also as reminder of the necessary clinical steps for diagnosis, referral and management. Cardiovascular conditions have been described that clinicians are likely to encounter on a regular basis in their practice. Chapters have been written by trainees under the supervision of a senior author with expertise in that particular area, thus addressing most everyday practical diagnostic and management issues and the potential questions that a non-specialist or junior doctor may have. The handbook is practical in nature and its chapters incorporate practical subheadings such as “Must do’s” and “Red flags”, placing the emphasis on therapeutics and pharmacological treatment. The inclusion of flowcharts, diagrams and images are a feature allowing easy understanding of key learning objectives.
