About this medical ebook pdf
Cardiovascular problems are always priorities for clinical examination. However, today, with the support of many subclinical examination methods such as ultrasound, electrocardiography, magnetic resonance has made the training and practice of cardiovascular clinical examination worsened.
Therefore, this book is published with the aim of helping clinicians gain more knowledge and enhance cardiovascular examination skills.
The medical book guides and explains the clinical heart examination techniques with Heart Sounds and Pulse Wave Forms that suggest physical symptoms as well as explain possible diseases cause those abnormalities.
The authors are clinicians, lecturers with dozens of years of experience presented the book with integrated knowledge including anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology to explain the mechanism of abnormal symptoms, detailed heart and heart rhythms help learners to better understand and be more confident in clinical cardiac practice.
The authors also made clearer on-the-spot and whole-body expressions related to heart diagnosis with specific illustrations.

From the Back Cover
Despite the fact that more than half the patients seeking care from an internal medicine specialist or a family physician will have either a primary or secondary cardiac problem, the teaching of cardiac auscultation, the physical examination of the heart, has been deteriorating since the advent of such modern diagnostic tools as 2D echocardiology and nuclear imaging.
This medicals books free veteran academic clinicians bring the art and science of cardiac physical examination to the bedside with a tour de force tutorial on techniques needed to elicit various physical signs and to interpret them in relation to the patient’s symptoms and underlying cardiac condition.
Drawing on twenty-five years of teaching and training physicians and physicians-to-be, the authors integrate the physiology, pathophysiology, and mechanisms behind the various physical signs with a thorough and easy-to-use practical approach that makes a physician feel more comfortable and competent performing the cardiac physical examination.
The authors pay particular attention to the interpretation of the jugular venous pulsations and contour and make the physiology and pathophysiology of the normal and abnormal arterial pulse interesting and relevant. They also clarify the apical impulse and its importance. Local and systemic manifestations relevant to cardiac diagnosis are also emphasized and illustrated.
Comprehensive and instructive, The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination provides the student of cardiology with the proper techniques and understanding of the art and science of the cardiac physical examination to develop the skills required of any astute clinician.
