Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Written in a straightforward style that is consistent throughout the book, Caring for the Heart Failure Patient provides a solid background in heart failure, from its pathophysiology to treatment to caring for the elderly. Meeting the need for a practical textbook on nursing care for heart failure patients, the three editors have assembled a distinguished team of nurses and clinicians to address that need. This dynamic team of experts writes on those aspects of heart failure care that concern allied professionals. Topics include gender issues in heart failure, the role of exercise and activity, psychosocial aspects and the non-pharmacological management of heart failure.
