Paediatric Cardiology for Practitioners

Reviewed by RISHI K GUPTA

Myung K Park Paediatric Cardiology for Practitioners 3rd edition 1996 Published by Mosby Year Book Inc. 0 8151 6632 X 540 Price Rs 1070/-.

This excellent book is written by Dr Park keeping in mind the need of non-cardiologist like pediatricians, physicians and general practitioners for improving their skills in arriving at clinical diagnosis of cardiac problems in children, using basic tools available in their office and general hospitals. This book also serves as a reference book in paediatric cardiology.

With newer developments in cardiology in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities the basics have been sidelined. The major emphasis in this book has been on utilization of basic tools like history taking, physical examination, ECG, chest radiography and echocardiography. There are plenty of line diagrams, flow charts and indication and timing for surgery.

The third edition has been updated which retains the old format. Chapters on echocardiography, exercise tests, ambulatory electrocardiography and cardiac catheterization have been substantially expanded.

This book is strongly recommended for all postgraduates and clinicians who care for children with heart diseases.
