This handbook follows the usual pattern of textbooks for nurses. The symptoms and signs of the usual types of heart disease are described, followed by a discussion of the various forms of treatment, including drugs, surgery, diet, climate, and psychotherapy. The discussion is clear and orderly. The book can be heartily recommended to the nurse who is devoting herself to the care of cardiac patients.
