Heart failure is an important and ever expanding sub-speciality of cardiology. Many health care professional bodies are now developing specialist expertise in heart failure. This is true for cardiologists in training, consultant cardiologists, care of the elderly and general physicians, cardiothoracic surgeons, primary care doctors, pharmacists and specialist nurses. With advances in medical therapy, the prognosis of the condition has improved dramatically. Whereas once heart failure was a pre-terminal diagnosis, now for many it is treatable. However, some patients remain symptomatic and at high risk of death despite maximal medical therapy. These patients can benefit from a range of novel device therapies. For those who remain symptomatic despite optimal treatment cardiac transplantation remains an option. This updated book comprehensively covers all aspects necessary to manage a patient with heart failure. It gives simple, clear advice on the diagnosis, investigation and treatment options available highlighting the current evidence-base. The chapters provide concise and objective information to guide all health care professionals involved in the modern day multi-disciplinary management of the syndrome. The book is set out logically to mirror the patient journey in heart failure. An updated edition of the first practical manual of heart failure management.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Writing a book that is accessible to all but maintains the interest of specialists is a tall order. The authors should be congratulated on a concise, balanced and well-pitched offering. * Graham Cole, Clinical Research Fellow, Imperial College London; British Journal of Cardiology, 22 (67), 2015 *
Clinical applicability of the contents and the modern illustrations are the most important reasons why you should choose this book. We recommend the book to cardiology specialists and residents in cardiology, internal medicine, and cardiac surgery, and it can also serve as a useful source of knowledge to nurses with a special interest or specialization in the heart failure. * Cardiologica Croatica *
This is a succinct reference to assist any clinicians in the management of their patients with heart failure. * Doody's Notes *
