The New York Heart Association's systematic approach to evaluating cardiac disease, set out in this book, has guided generations of physicians in diagnosing disorders of the heart and cardiovascular system and assessing their patients' response to therapy. Now, thoroughly revised for its ninth edition, this portable classic continues to provide the timely and practical information you need to make an accurate determination. The ninth edition restores the Functional Capacity component of the NYHA Functional Classification and introduces a new Objective Assessment category. Reflecting the latest advances in the field, this edition features updated material on the biology of heart disease and a completely new section on laboratory tests
