"The purpose is to remind readers of the strengths and weaknesses inherent in the specific markers in commonly used cardiac laboratory tests. ... The book accomplishes this by reminding providers of the nuances specific to each test and incorporating these in real clinical cases. This book is intended for any provider -- resident, attending, or midlevel -- who orders or interprets cardiac biomarkers. ... book would be of most benefit to those working in cardiology as opposed to broader fields."
