Cardiology for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses
The ﬁeld of veterinary cardiology has grown so rapidly that each year approximately 10 veterinarians specialize in cardiology. There are so many boarded cardiologists in the USA that there is shortage of highly trained specialized veterinary technicians. It is the hope of the author that this text will be a launch point for those veterinary technicians and nurses who wish to pursue specialization in veterinary cardiology, as well as for veterinary technical students and veterinary students, to explore this fascinating and expanding world.
It should be stated at the beginning that this textbook is not designed to be an exhaustive tome of all cardiovascular knowledge, but rather a summary of many other outstanding textbooks, formulated into an easily manageable text to give the reader fundamental knowledge that will prepare them for deeper study into the subjects that interest them. The author also hopes that this text will be a quickly accessible resource to aid in answering common clinical questions faced by the cardiology veterinary technician specialist. The interested reader is encouraged to dig deeper into the particular areas of veterinary cardiology that interest them by accessing the textbooks cited in the references and bibliographies.
