This book is a unique compilation of case-records from heart patients, who were diagnosed at the bedside by adopting the conventional clinical approach rather than utilizing modern sophisticated technology. Each case description opens with the medical history, includes the findings on physical examination and concludes with the illustration of an ECG, ECHO or X-ray. Presents a harmonious blend of the time-honored clinical approach with the modern technical approach, towards the diagnosis of heart disease. The book is formatted as clinical cases, giving the reader an opportunity to mentally construct a plausible diagnosis from symptoms and signs. The electrocardiogram (ECG), chest skiagram (X-RAY) and echocardiogram (ECHO) are simple yet informative diagnostic modalities that have withstood the test of time. They elegantly compliment the information gathered from medical history and physical examination and they are cost- effective investigations in resource sensitive settings. Moreover, since the equipment for these tests is portable, the tests can be conveniently performed at the patients bedside and the results interpreted in the light of clinical data. A plausible clinical diagnosis is then mentally constructed based upon these simple pieces of information. This is followed by a practical discussion of the differential diagnosis and some useful take-home clinical pearls. The book provides a wealth of clinical material on the importance of symptoms, physical signs and auscultatory findings, formatted in a concise and readable form. These tips & tricks will be ideal for cardiology students preparing for exams, resident doctors working in cardiac-care units and physicians dealing first-hand with heart patients.
