The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine has become the definitive reference work for every cardiology trainee, general cardiologist and specialist cardiologist as they develop their core knowledge of their subject. Based on the Core Curriculum of the European Society of Cardiology, this online resource contains much of the evidence base, and reflects ESC guidelines, Task Force reports and Scientific statements, which guide current practice. Now totally revised and updated, with significant new chapters on specific context-based heart disease, The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine Online is the must-have must-use resource for everyone currently working in the field.

The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine contains 38 sections flowing from the clinical presentation of the patient and initial investigations, through to comprehensive descriptions of disease processes and pathophysiological states, and finally to the complex interrelationship between the heart and the mind. Each section begins with a summary of the chapter featuring key learning points, and is completed with personal reflections from the authors about the standing of their subject and its likely development during the next half decade.

Multiple choice questions - unique to the online version - provide comprehensive coverage of all of the material, and can be completed to gain European Board of Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC)-accredited CME points. Abstracts and full texts recommended as 'further reading' can be accessed, searched and downloaded via PubMed.

Finding the information you need is easy with a clear on-screen layout, straight-forward search functionality, and intuitive navigation. Full-colour diagrams and simple tables are interspersed throughout, and can be downloaded to PowerPoint for individuals' personal use. Sections relating to cardiac imaging are further enhanced by the inclusion of original video footage.

The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine represents the core knowledge expected of all cardiologists - from those in training to those seeking professional reaccreditation. Although created principally for those practising in European countries, it will also provide up-to-date and comprehensive information for others who seek this information, wherever in the world they may be based.
