This book provides a complete, easy-to-use handbook for nurses who see patients with heart failure. In
recent years heart failure has become a high priority in health care. With more nurses caring for patients
with heart failure and making decisions that are often complex, there is a clear need for those nurses to
have access to good quality clinical information and guidance. This book is designed to be a practical,
'one-stop', handbook for the practitioner, supported by case studies and up-todate references throughout,
providing all the topics the Practitioner or student may need in their work with patients with heart failure.
"This book is easy to read, despite having minimal pictures and diagrams. It would be a helpful tool for
students, newly qualified nurses and any practitioner requiring a refresher or update on heart
failure." (British Journal of Perioperative Nursing, June 2009)
This useful handbook introduces the reader to key issues in enhancing the care of patients with heart
failure. (British Journal of Cardiac Nursing, July 2008)
"An absolute must for any practitioner involved in running a heart failure service and should also be on the
shelf of every university library, coronary care unit, medical unit and GP surgery."
