Main Description
This volume addresses the combined approach of patient history, physical examination, and echocardiography in the diagnostic workup of patients with heart disease. Coverage begins with basic principles of the physical and echocardiographic examination and proceeds to specific cardiovascular conditions. Each disease-oriented chapter includes a discussion of the diagnostic accuracy and limitations of both the physical examination and echocardiography, with the goal of assisting readers to better understand how to establish need for further referral either for catheterization or surgery. Numerous tables and illustrations appear throughout the book.
