Cardiovascular Biomarkers: Pathophysiology and Disease Management (PDF)
David A. MorrowDavid A. Morrow
Cardiovascular Biomarkers: Pathophysiology and Disease Management is aimed at meeting the needs not only of the practicing clinician but also the interests of clinician-scientists, medical trainees and laboratorians. The book is divided into seven sections, each of which covers a major class of biomarkers (e.g. biomarkers of necrosis, biomarkers of inflammation, and biomarkers of hemodynamic stress). Each section begins with an overview of the biology and development of each major class, followed by a concise review of analytic issues important to the clinician, and then by a series of chapters written by internationally recognized experts who discuss clinical applications of the biomarkers. These later chapters focus on the incorporation of biomarkers into the contemporary management of patients with cardiovascular disease, emphasizing clinical studies, evidence-based diagnostic algorithms, and critical pathways for triage and therapy.
