Description

Society-sanctioned guidelines on care are valuable tools, but accessing key information from the often complicated statements has been a daunting task. Now, practitioners and their institutions have a clear path to successful application of guidelines from the American Heart Association. This book outlines the key AHA guidelines, Statements, and Performance Measures and includes comparisons with the associated European guidelines. This book also has a strong online component, which will alert users who sign up to new updates to the guidelines and other relevant information. It will also have links through to the full guidelines and statements.
