It is the matter of fact that not only our reading audience has significantly expanded recently, but more important, we note an increasing number of physicians among our readers who successfully apply theory in practice. At the same time it should be stated that a problem of medical education becomes acute. Knowledge obtained by physicians and based mainly on empirical evidence in cardiology hinders their logical way of thinking. That is the reason that our current issue is devoted to the presentation of the key concepts in cardiometry as they can support a practitioner to learn more about capabilities offered by the new science for application in practice.
Cardiometry confirms its status of the new science. Its laws (they are already six now) laid the groundwork for the axiomatic system and furnish a clue to most complicated problems in cardiology one has to face in the research process. Actually, the results obtained from the basic proof and the logical apparatus provide scientists with the unique keys to interpreting new issues occurring in investigations. This makes cardiometry unique in practical use efficacy: a single examination of a patient supported with express diagnostics is quite enough to make a diagnosis, identify the primary cause of changes in the cardiovascular system performance and provide well-defined recommendations how to tackle a problem, if any, by adequate treatment. Moreover, there is a possibility to monitor efficacy of treatment. But at the same time the above advantages conflict with the generally accepted principles of evidence-based diagnostics and therapy in the conventional cardiology. The existing guidelines in the present-day cardiology accompanied by lack of incentives to introduce new educational programs in the system of the medical professional training impede the proper understanding of the cardiac cycle phase analysis logic.
However cardiometry accelerates the rate of its development. It offers more and more new opportunities our journal regularly describes. This release contains not only conceptual papers, but also some practical materials which might be useful for time-saving mastering of innovative diagnostic technologies based on cardiometry.
