Although the incidence of coronary heart disease is falling, its major complication, heart failure, is increasing in frequency. All health care practitioners will encounter patients with heart failure, presenting either acutely or in need of chronic heart failure management. However with recent advances in medical therapy, the prognosis of the condition has improved dramatically so that whereas once heart failure was a pre-terminal diagnosis, now for many it is treatable. Taking the reader from an understanding of the basic mechanisms of heart failure through to an appreciation of the complexities of heart failure management and the remarkable improvements possible with good treatment, this definitive textbook is written by internationally renowned leaders in their field and comprehensively covers all aspects necessary to manage a patient with heart failure. In full colour throughout, containing over 300 illustrations, and supported by detailed referencing from the huge evidence base that has developed over the last two decades, Oxford Textbook of Heart Failure also includes extensive chapters on common co-morbidities, and will be essential reading for consultant cardiologists and those in training, general physicians and those caring of the elderly, cardiothoracic surgeons, primary care doctors, pharmacists, and specialist nurses. The printed edition is complemented by 6 months free access to an online version (also available for separate purchase on subscription basis), allowing users to search the text, and download the figures for use in PowerPoint presentations.

Overall, the book is solid and up to date, written by recognized experts. I recommend it as a textbook to anyone who works with heart failure, primarily cardiologists, internists, nephrologists, geriatricians, heart surgeons, general practitioners and specialist nurses. * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association *
The text is comprehensive with detaied physiology but is delivered in a clear and understandable way amd is well supported by an international evidence base. This would be a very useful reference text for anyone involved in the management of complex clinical syndrome. * British Journal of Cardiac Nursing *
For the general cardiologist, this textbook provides an important and thorough overview of many aspects of heart failure, and could be a valuable addition to any library. This textook provides a timely, complete, and easy to read reference work for a clinical syndrome that needs a specialized cardiac care. * European Journal of Heart Failure *
With the transformation of this field over the past three decades, this book serves as a valuable resource with its wealth of information on topics such as pharmacologic agents, device therapy, mechanical support, transplant, and even end-of-life care. The thorough discussion of the comorbidities which accompany heart failure is unique. This book offers a great review of the field of heart failure. * Doody's Review *
I am enthusiastic about this Oxford Textbook of Heart Failure, edited by McDonagh, Gardner, Clark and Dargie, that fills a much-needed gap in the literature. The book at once achieves a ready accessibility and an impressive degree of learning. It will be of interest to both the non heart failure cardiologist and to those cardiologists with particular expertise in the area alike, alongside all other physicians and clinicians involved in delivering heart failure care, across all health care domains. Each will bring their own knowledge to their reading but all have much to learn from this tome. If you buy no other textbook this year this should be the one, and then read it and read it and read it. * Cardiology News, July 2013 *
