Product Description: This important textbook successfully tackles the lack of evidence for practice in caring for patients with acute heart failure, and provides the reader with practical advice on how to diagnose and treat their patients effectively. Bringing a major public health problem into the era of evidence-based medical practice, this important textbook successfully tackles the lack of evidence for practice in caring for patients with acute heart failure. Providing the reader with practical advice on how to diagnose and treat their patients effectively, key elements of the text include: - a definition of the problem, including its scope and epidemiology - common complications and comorbid conditions - an in-depth review of the pharmacological therapy for acute heart failure. With an interesting focus on the integrative care of the patient, the book includes chapters on psychosocial aspects, nursing care, and disease management, which clarify many issues about the total care of the patient and family that are often ignored in medical textbooks. Comprehensive and easy to use, this is an essential companion to practitioners caring for patients with this increasingly common, difficult, and fatal disease.
