The Coronary Care Manual has been designed as a practical manual for the management of the acute coronary patient, and aims to achieve a balance between the large and rapidly changing evidence base and practical application in the CCU, ICU, ED and ambulance.

The book has been written by a group of Australian and international experts for medical, nursing and paramedic staff working in these areas. This edition covers a broad range of coronary care medicine in enough detail to eliminate the need to refer to a larger reference book, providing a portable companion for a night "on call".

Completely redesigned with new artwork, the manual is organized to suit academics and practitioners alike.
