From my UG times. I always had difficulty in finding all the components of clinical cardiology, like valvular heart disease, congenital heard disease, cardiac examination, ECG, chest X-ray, 2-D ECHO in one place. As I studied further, I still noticed unmet need from that perspective. This book is primarily written for the above mentioned reason and while writing this book I kept in mind UGs, PGs, those preparing for DM cardiology entrance, those who are facing cardiology exams and those who practice cardiology. The beauty of this book is that it will be a one stop book for anything related to clinical cardiology and cardiac examination. This book is divided into 2 sections, the first part is on bed side examination, technique of examination, bed side investigations, while the other part focuses on particular clinical conditions and what to look in them.

As in harmony with my previous books, Cardiology Made Easy, MCQs in Cardiology, A Quick Review of Clinical Trials in Cardiology, this book, “Essentials of Clinical Cardiology” tries to solve the problem of different materials in clinical cardiology by covering everything, from A to Z in clinical cardiology. I hope that like my other three books, this book also helps to practice cardiology in a better way.
