“This textbook is cohesive, tightly organized, and has no repetition…. It is beautifully illustrated…and is my ‘go to’ source for rapid reference.” Journal of Interventional Cardiology

“I would recommend this ebook, Pulmonary Embolism 3e to all physicians looking after patients with venous thromboembolism … .The single author style has the advantage of a consistent format and lack of repetition, and the ebook is very well written.” Cardiology News

“Paul Stein … has used his vast knowledge and perspective to organize this definitive text … .In this long-awaited second edition he builds on the knowledge base regarding this common and yet often misdiagnosed condition. This text fills a gap in the knowledge-base of the physician, nurse, or therapist who cares for patients with pulmonary embolism. By using a clear and organized format with many graphs and diagrams, Stein provides detailed information beyond the scope of an online review, but in a readily searchable and easily accessible format. Stein does a nice job of explaining the challenges of using intermediate end points in the assessment of efficacy. Stein is clearly one of the world’s experts, and this far-reaching volume is a pleasure to read.” Respiratory Care
