Eureka: Cardiovascular Medicine is an innovative book for medical students that fully integrates core science, clinical medicine and surgery.

The book benefits from an engaging and authoritative text, written by specialists in the field, and has several key features to help you really understand the subject:

  • Chapter starter questions – to get you thinking about the topic before you start reading
  • Break out boxes which contain essential key knowledge
  • Clinical cases to help you understand the material in a clinical context
  • Unique graphic narratives which are especially useful for visual learners
  • End of chapter answers to the starter questions
  • A final self-assessment chapter of Single Best Answers to really help test and reinforce your knowledge

The book starts with the First Principles chapter which clearly explains the key concepts, processes and structures of the cardiovascular system.

This is followed by a Clinical Essentials chapter which provides an overview of the symptoms and signs of cardiovascular disease, relevant history and examination techniques, investigations and management options.

The Disease-based chapters give concise descriptions of all major disorders, e.g. ischaemic heart disease, hypertension and heart failure, each chapter introduced by engaging clinical cases that feature unique graphic narratives.

The Emergencies chapter covers the principles of immediate care in situations such as cardiac arrest and acute MI.

An Integrated care chapter discusses strategies for the management of chronic conditions across primary and other care settings

Finally, the Self-Assessment chapter comprises 80 multiple choice questions in clinical Single Best Answer format, to thoroughly test your understanding of the subject.

"This is a very well-written book with plenty of helpful illustrations." Amazon reviewer

"As a medical student, I love this series of books! The chapters are concise and mean that you can really focus on the pathology you are interested in. "  Amazon reviewer

"This is an excellent starting point for medical students either in their pre-clinical years or those just starting their cardiology placement. There are case scenarios that guide through each pathology and their subsequent management and sections with integrated patient care pathways such as the DVLA etc which really put the medicine into context."
