Coronary heart disease is the most common type of cardiovascular disease. An individual is about three times more likely to die from a cardiovascular disease than from any form of cancer. Addressing one of the fastest-advancing medical research areas, The ABC's of Coronary Heart Disease succinctly explains the dramatic changes that have occurred in recent years and describes the latest discoveries and breakthrough treatments. However, many patients, medical students, and physicians as well continue to have misconceptions about this complex and insidious disease. Unlike any other current heart disease book, The ABC's of Coronary Heart Disease discusses major misconceptions of the disease such as the perception of coronary heart disease as a predominantly male disease, the belief that heart bypass surgery and angioplasty completely cure the patient, and the notion that the severity of a blockage is a good indicator of the likelihood of a heart attack. Patients must take an active role in their understanding and treatment of this widespread and deadly disease. The ABC's of Coronary Heart Disease provides you with uncomplicated, thorough information and guidance, making it the ideal book toward broadening your knowledge.

The second edition of the ABC of COPD provides the entire multidisciplinary team with a reliable, up-to-date and accessible account of COPD. Extensively updated by experienced clinicians - including new chapters on spirometry, inhalers, oxygen, death, dying and end of life issues - this ABC is an authoritative and practical guide for general practitioners, practice nurses, specialist nurses, medical students, paramedical staff, junior doctors, non-specialist doctors and all other health professionals working in both primary and secondary care.
