The Jefferson Heart Institute Handbook of Cardiology offers a comprehensive, easily navigable guide to cardiac disorders and their treatment for residents, general internists and practicing cardiologists.  This important compendium covers everything from arrhythmias to hemodynamics, fully preparing physicians to assess their cardiac patients at the point of care.
