Classic cardiovascular drugs book
By "severum" - April 6, 2000
This is a classic of cardiovascular medicine. In its newest edition Opie's book is excellent in many ways: first, it is a small book, almost a pocket-book, and loaded with concise yet precise infformation. It is the kind of book you can put in your black bag and you can belive it will be valuable anywhere, from the ICU to the ambulatory. There are many excellent chapters on drugs, all of them with an solid pharmacological basis, each chapter is an great review of the subject. But the best of this book is that it is very practical: it goes straight to the problems more commonly found in the cardiology office or in the ICU, with the big advantage of being small and portable. An must-have book for physicians intrested in cardiology and in cardiovascular drugs pharmacology, also excellent for residents. Hope we have an new edition of this great book soon!

I happened to see this book with a cardiology resident..owing to its sleek size he was carrying it in his pocket. Although the edition was 5th, i was so impressed with the chapters on beta blockers, ace inhibitors..Not only every chapter covers the basic pharmacokinetics and dynamics of each group in detail, but each drug has been considered individually as well. Add to it, the references to the clinical trials conducted, the book is indispensable. Especially the last chapter "which therapy for which condition", is a section for quick reviews before grand rounds. I made up my mind that very instant..this book is a MUST have!
