Description: With the rapid development of the field of cardiac
biomarkers comes a need for updated guidance on how to use them
clinically. Drs. Adams, Jaffe, and Apple meet that need with this
timely reference.

Taking a case-oriented approach for the greatest clinical relevance,
the book bridges the gap between science and practice. If you use – or
want to use – cardiac markers such as BNP and troponin to help your
patients, you will find this clear and comprehensive reference
provides a dependable source of valuable information.

The 19 chapters are divided into three parts:

• Cardiac Troponins
• Natriuretic Peptides
• Contemporary Markers of Risk

The authors cover the technical, clinical, and outcome assessments for
each marker used in clinical practice. After each case scenario, an
extensive discussion explains the clinical decisions and provides
valuable context.

This new publication takes a critical, evidence-based look at the efficacy of new diagnostic tests which are increasingly being used to evaluate organ damage and dysfunction. The use of biomarkers is growing, with a steady stream of new products being brought out by the pharmaceutical industry. However, in many cases the evidence which supports the use of these new methods as opposed to traditional biochemical tests has not yet been demonstrated, and it is intended that this volume will help clarify the strengths and weaknesses of using these biomarkers across a wide range of applications and in the various organs of the body. This approach will provide an invaluable overview of the diverse applications of biomarkers in medicine.
