The ESC Textbook of Heart Failure
Edited by Petar Seferovic, Andrew Coats, Gerasimos Filippatos, Johann Bauersachs, and Giuseppe Rosano
The ESC Textbook of Heart Failure is the latest addition to the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) publications portfolio and is fully supported by the Heart Failure Association of the ESC.
The textbook brings together internationally renowned experts in the field of heart failure to present an up-to-date understanding of all aspects of this chronic condition that worsens with time. It is estimated that the worldwide population of patients suffering from heart failure is approximately 26 million. This clinically oriented work reflects contemporary European guidelines from the ESC and the Heart Failure Association of the ESC and summarises the latest evidence from clinical trials.
Made up of eighteen different sections the textbook covers the epidemiology, etiology, prevention, pathophysiology, and clinical phenotypes of heart failure. The assessment and management of chronic, acute, and advance heart failure are all discussed in detail. As well as chapters dedicated to self-care and patient education, the multidisciplinary approach to heart failure management, and clinical trial design and interpretation. The future direction of the field is discussed throughout with separate chapters on digital health, big data, and telemedicine/remote monitoring in heart failure also included.
A must read for cardiovascular healthcare specialists in Europe and across the world it should also appeal to those in training, general physicians and those caring of the elderly, cardiothoracic surgeons, primary care doctors, and specialist nurses too.
