This is book number 15 in the Evidence-Based Clinical Chinese Medicine series.


The fifteenth volume of the Evidence-based Clinical Chinese Medicine series examines the management of chronic heart failure with Chinese medicine using a 'whole evidence' approach. Readers are provided with an overview of the current management of chronic heart failure with both conventional medicine and contemporary Chinese medicine. This is followed by a detailed analysis of how chronic heart failure was viewed and managed in past eras.Evidence from clinical studies is systematically reviewed and analysed to evaluate the potential benefits of Chinese herbal medicines and other Chinese medicine treatments for people with chronic heart failure. A review of experimental studies highlights some of the mechanisms of actions of a selection of the most frequently used Chinese herbs. The outcomes of analyses are presented and discussed in the final chapter and we identify implications for contemporary practice and promising areas for future research.This book provides clinicians and students in the fields of Chinese and integrative medicine with a comprehensive synthesis of traditional and contemporary knowledge that can inform clinical decision-making.
