Today’s patients have unique cardiologic needs before, during, and after cancer treatment. Chemotherapies, radiation therapy, and targeted therapies can produce acute side effects or lasting adverse consequences on the heart and circulatory system, making the field of cardio-oncology increasingly important in effective patient care. Cardio-Oncology Practice Manual is a comprehensive, portable guide that provides practical approaches to assessment and management of cardiovascular diseases due to the effects of cardiotoxic agents and treatments. Part of the Braunwald family of renowned cardiology references, it clearly presents clinically relevant aspects of this growing field in one quick, practical reference for a wide range of cardio-oncology providers.
