ASPC Manual of Preventive Cardiology 2nd edition PDF free download – This new edition of the American Society for Preventive Cardiology (ASPC) Manual of Preventive Cardiology features signifcant updates from newer guidelines of the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association, and other societies for cardiovascular risk assessment and risk factor management. In just the last 5 years, we have witnessed perhaps a generation of advances in the feld of preventive cardiology that have been incorporated into this new edition. The advent of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors has brought low density lipoprotein cholesterol to lower levels than ever before, in many cases below 20 mg/dL, further addressing the problem of “residual risk” in our high-risk patients. This occurred simultaneously with release of key trials of sodiumglucose transport protein 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP1) receptor agonists, the frst diabetes therapies to show cardiovascular risk reduction benefts. Moreover, the frst two trials to prove the link between infammation and atherosclerosis and its clinical sequelae have leveraged novel mechanisms to reduce cardiovascular disease risk. The end of the last decade was then topped off by the frst fsh oil therapy, icosapent ethyl, to further reduce risk for cardiovascular events beyond statin therapy in high-risk patients.
The contributors of the 29 chapters in this new edition are experts in their respective felds of preventive cardiology and, along with the editors, have dedicated their careers to advancing this feld. While each chapter includes much relevant scientifc discussion of the latest clinical trials and other research, the goal of the ASPC Manual of Preventive Cardiology is to address contemporary, practical therapeutic approaches that enhance the practice of preventive cardiology by the wide range of providers essential for its practice—ranging from lifestyle interventionists, such as dietitians and exercise physiologists, to nurses and nurse practitioners, pharmacists, primary care providers, and specialists including endocrinologists and cardiologists. Guidance is also provided for development of a preventive cardiology center that encompasses this range of healthcare providers essential for optimizing cardiovascular disease prevention in our communities.
