Washington Manual of Cardiology Subspecialty Consult 3rd Edition PDF  We, the editors of the third edition of The Washington Manual ™ Cardiology Subspecialty Consult, wish to thank you for choosing our book as worthy of your time to learn about cardiovascular diseases. There are many excellent resources available to learners, but we hope that as you navigate through these pages, you discover the passion that our authors have harnessed to create this up-todate and clinically impactful portable text.

We specifically wish to thank the editor of the first edition, Dr. Peter Crawford, who planted the seeds of high-level intellect and compassionate tutelage from which this edition grows. We are most indebted to the marvelous effort of those who contributed to the current edition: house staff, fellows, and attending physicians alike. While we expected excellence from our authors, we were overwhelmed by the high quality of information and clear passion for teaching found in each chapter.

Every chapter of the third edition has been written by a pair of authors: one cardiovascular fellow and one cardiovascular or pulmonary clinician-educator. This pairing embodies the overriding theme of this edition: front-line, middle-of-the-night synthesis and application of up-to-date guidelines, seasoned with expert clinical experience. As with previous editions, we deliberately stress the most useful information as it relates to the patient’s diagnosis and treatment with mnemonics, bullet-point lists, bold-faced clinical pearls, and easy-to-read figures.

To keep the text thin enough to be portable, guidelines from the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology are emphasized with journal and online references at the end of each chapter. We strongly encourage reading these current practice recommendations as well as peer-reviewed journals, review articles, and primary textbooks to supplement the material in this handbook.

We are particularly proud of the depth of the specialties in this edition. For example, in an effort to restore the lost art of the cardiovascular physical exam, we asked one of our most gifted master clinicians to author a dedicated chapter on this topic. Additionally, the clinical impact of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, or diastolic heart failure, has inspired a new chapter for this edition.

Washington Manual of Cardiology Subspecialty Consult 3rd Edition PDF continued importance of individualization of medicine inspired dedicated chapters on cardiovascular diseases in elderly populations and in women specifically. These new chapters are coupled with a simplified reorganization of the book, grouping chapters together in the most logical ways.

Now more than ever, it is a thrilling time to be interested in cardiovascular disease. Discovery is happening at a rapid pace, and translating these new discoveries to the patient’s bedside happens quickly. More so than decades past, there is a strong interest in providing cost-effective evidence-based cardiology. This process requires a continuous synthesis and evaluation of the most recent clinical trials into daily practice while maintaining diagnostic skills that are at the center of cardiovascular disease management.



It is our hope that both the information and the enthusiasm contained in the chapters that follow provide you with the means to meet these challenges and with it become a better teacher, a better learner, and a better physician.
