Product Description:

Senior citizens currently account for over eighty percent of all cardiovascular disease related deaths. With advances and breakthrough in modern medicine that are allowing people to live longer, the amount of senior citizens in this country will grow exponentially over the next decade. Physicians, gerontologists, cardiologists, and all clinicians caring for the elderly will require – at the very least – a basic understanding of cardiovascular disease and disorders (hypertension, heart failure, etc.), found specifically in the aging patient. In a new updated fourth edition, each chapter is thoroughly updated by recognized experts to provide an up-to-date and in-depth overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, evaluation, and treatment of cardiovascular disorders in older adults published in a single-source text.
