Churchill's Ready Reference
Cardiology by Alexander R. Lyon
Book Description"Cardiology: Churchill's Ready Reference" provides a practical compilation of information to assist in the everyday clinical management of the cardiac patient. In this volume, the authors have included an abundance of diagrams, figures, and tables that they find helpful in understanding some of challenges and conditions frequently encountered in this area of medicine and it is to be hoped that the volume will guide clinicians in the diagnosis and management of common conditions encountered on a daily basis in this area of practice. This book is not meant to replace larger, more complete textbooks, but to complement them and will be useful at the bedside, in the office and for teaching.

He was awarded a MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship in 2005. He completed his PhD in 2008, and spent his first postdoctoral year studying the spatiotemporal patterns of mitochondrial function in the lab of Fadi Akar and Roger Hajjar at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York. He was appointed Walport Clinical Lecturer in Cardiology in October 2008. His main research interests include: 1. Abnormal calcium physiology in heart failure. 2. Mechansims of ventricular arrhythmias in heart failure. 3. Biological therapies for heart failure - these include gene therapy, stem cell therapy and myocardial tissue engineering. 4. Spatio-temporal patterns of mitochondrial dysfunction in the intact heart. 5. Influence of stress and high catecholamine levels on cardiac function. Recent academic awards include the Royal Society of Medicine Cardiology Section President's Medal Winner (2007), Medical Research Society Raftery Prize in Cardiovascular Sciences winner (2008), European Meeting of International Society of Heart Research Best Scientific Poster Prize (2008).
