This “patient-oriented” book was written as a meeting ground for practicing clinicians, allied health professionals, and clinical researchers to provide a practical guide for the contemporary assessment and management of patients with heart failure and cardiomyopathy. It revolves around broad patient scenarios to elegantly (or expertly) guide diagnostic and management strategies. Combining the talents of over one-hundred experts in the field, the book also endeavors to challenge the reader with areas of current controversies and opportunities for clinical investigation with the goals of both orienting clinicians and stimulating their research passions.
