  • "As a professional in the field of cardiovascular diseases, I highly recommend this to all professionals as a pocket reference. Every aspect of cardiac function is included, and presented in a clear and concise manner. It's very impressive that such a large amount of cardiac knowledge can be right at your fingertips, and still easily fit in your pocket. This is a fantastic tool for everyday clinical use."

  • "I'm a hospitalist and this little book packs a punch! A LOT of info in less than 400 pages. Much of the book is over my head; ie, intended for cardiologists but it is worth it.  And finally! A book with 2010 AHA ACLS Guidelines.  Recommend highly."
