Using the Handbook

This case-based handbook will help clinicians assess their patients' cardiovascular risk, and gives step-by-step advice how to bring patients' lipids to guideline-recommended levels.

Case examples of patients with different backgrounds are discussed, to illustrate how the 2019 ESC/EAS Guidelines for Management of Dyslipidaemias should be applied in real-life settings.

Here, Prof Olov Wiklund, Editor of the Handbook, gives a short introduction to how it may be used.
