Paper Bound, 400 pages The cardiovascular principles guidebook represents three years of classroom registry examination presentations at the School of Cardiac Ultrasound. The strength of this guide is that it takes the cardiovascular principles examination outline and breaks it down into its smallest components, thoroughly discusses each component, and then concludes each section with practice review and board review examination questions. Units of study include anatomy of the heart, basic embryology, congenital defects, cardiac physiology, cardiac evaluation methods, and principles of cardiac hemodynamics. The Cardiovascular Principles “At a Glance” section provides a condensation of the pertinent material, and the Cardiovascular Principles 500 section provides a challenging final test.
