'Heart Disease and Rehabilitation' is the most complete and up-to-date reference available on the state of knowledge in heart disease and cardiac rehabilitation. The third edition of this classic text has been stream-lined and reorganized to include 28 completely new chapters and 37 new contributors - all of whom are preeminent researchers and practitioners in their respective fields. The result is a compact volume that provides complete, in-depth coverage of important issues in cardiac rehabilitation such as: how exercise affects morbidity, mortality, and health risk; medical versus surgical management of the coronary patient; how exercise should be prescribed, monitored, and supervised; procedures for performing and evaluating graded exercise testing; and future directions in cardiac rehabilitation.
