Preface

Preventive cardiology has made substantial contributions
to reducing the toll of cardiovascular disease
(CVD) during the past 50 years but despite these
advances, CVD remains the leading cause of death in
the United States, and the global burden of the disease
continues to rise. In addition, the epidemic of obesity
and the increase in diabetes threaten to reverse
the downward trend of CVD. Coronary heart disease
(CHD) is the primary etiology of this public health
crisis and claims more than one million victims annually
in the United States, and stroke, heart failure, and
peripheral arterial disease are also major contributors
to the burden of CVD. The crucial personal and economic
benefits of preventing CVD compared to treatment
of advanced atherosclerotic vascular disease
have been convincingly demonstrated but optimal
application of this evidence into daily practice lags, a
deficiency that has gained recognition as the “knowledge–
practice gap.”
This situation necessitates intensification of
efforts to prevent a reversal of past achievements in
the struggle against CVD. It has also provided the
background and incentive for the development of the
American Society for Preventive Cardiology (ASPC)
Manual of Preventive Cardiology. The editors have
devoted their careers to this field in both practice and
research and we are gratified that this Manual is an
official publication of the ASPC.
Although textbooks on preventive cardiology
have detailed its science and application, the goals
of the ASPC Manual of Preventive Cardiology are
to address contemporary practical approaches to the
most vital aspects of preventing cardiac and vascular
disease. Clinical utility for practitioners is foremost
and special efforts have been made by the authors and
editors to ensure that the content of all chapters is as
up to date as possible.
The extent of this field now far exceeds its
traditional designation of “preventive cardiology,”
as reflected by the spectrum of topics in the ASPC
Manual of Preventive Cardiology. In addition to the
time-honored topics of CVD risk factors, we also
include chapters on peripheral artery disease, stroke,
smoking, contemporary cardiovascular imaging, heart
failure, metabolic syndrome, thrombosis, nutrition,
special populations, novel risk factors, and psychosocial
stress. An important feature is inclusion and expert
assessment of the most recent prevention guidelines of
the American College of Cardiology and American
Heart Association, including those on risk assessment,
lifestyle recommendations, blood cholesterol, and
obesity as well as the new guidelines on hypertension.
This volume is the first of its kind since the
publication of the original Primer in Preventive
Cardiology in 1994 by the American Heart Association,
edited by Dr. Thomas Pearson and colleagues.
It is hoped that the expertise and access of current
approaches to prevention in this compact Manual will
promote translation of knowledge into daily practice
to stem the tide of CVD worldwide…
