The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination is the latest edition of this essential guide to identifying the signs and symptoms of heart diseases. The book is divided into 14 chapters, initially covering different types of pulse and the measurement of blood pressure. A chapter on heart sounds is followed by a three-part discussion on heart murmurs, including the use of recordings of heart sounds and video recordings of jugular pulsations. The signs and symptoms of cardiac disease are covered in detail, and the manifestations of cardiovascular disease are described. The book concludes with two chapters on electrocardiography (ECG). Finally, the book provides a self-assessment chapter, with clinical scenarios which use history and clinical findings from actual patients. Enhanced by nearly 100 full colour images and illustrations and edited by a team of cardiology experts based in Toronto and Chicago, The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination is ideal for cardiologists and general physicians wishing to keep their knowledge of examination for heart disease up to date.

I feel privileged to be asked to write a foreword to this book The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination.
The authors are very experienced and senior clinicians, and have more than three decades of rigorous, scientific research into clinical signs and their mechanisms. They have made seminal contributions to the literature in this field, particularly in the area of the jugular venous pulse. Further, they are deeply committed to teaching and communicating the knowledge and insights that they have acquired over the years.
The past few decades have seen considerable changes in the science and practice of cardiology. The plethora of new discoveries, new imaging modalities and newer modes of treatment has tended to overshadow the importance of sound clinical examination. Indeed, there is a widespread feeling that both the time and the importance accorded to the formal teaching of clinical skills in many contemporary cardiology training programs are inadequate. The authors' effort in bringing out this excellent book (and companion CD) serves as an effective and timely step to correct this trend
