Compiled by a team of students and practising doctors and consultants from the University of Edinburgh Medical School, Cardiology in a Heartbeat provides practical advice to enable the reader to get to grips with the subject quickly and easily. This unique author team brings the reader the best of both worlds: the student authors focus on what students need to know whilst the contributions from senior medics ensure the book is accurate and covers the subject completely.

The attractive full-colour layout and short, consistent chapters mean the book is easy to navigate through; this is especially useful when the reader wants to quickly brush up on a particular topic or find an answer to a specific question.

The book boasts an array of design features specifically for students (such as pro-tips, exam essentials, mnemonics, ‘in a nutshell’ sections) to really help the reader understand the subject and, just as importantly, to pass their exams.

A proportion of the proceeds from sales of this book will be donated to the British Heart Foundation
