Synopsis

This book covers the complete history of heart failure, from the earliest references in Ancient Egypt right up to the latest clinical trials, concluding with a look into the future and the likely impact of new drugs and the role of targeted therapy in clinical practice. The authors, a well known cardiologist and respected medical writer present a concise account of the 'Landmarks' in research and clinical practice that have led to our current understanding of the disease. Divided into ten main chapters, the text follows a chronological format, beginning with early clinical observation, the discovery of circulation, developments in our understanding of physiology and a detailed review of the watershed discoveries of the 50s and 60s that have provided the platform for the major developments in the modern treatment of heart failure. Later chapters look at the groundbreaking ideas put forward by such modern pioneers as Jay Cohn, Paul Wood and F.Waagestein. The text is published in full colour and complemented by many historical documents and illustrations and is exhaustively referenced.

This book will be essential reading for anybody working in cardiac care and heart failure in particular.
