The second edition of this bestseller provides a practical, user-friendly manual guiding the theory and practice of cardiac electrophysiology. The handbook provides the specialist in training with a thorough grounding procedures, and clinical findings for clinicians. It provides a review of the main kinds of arrhythmia with illustrations of typical ECG findings supported where appropriate by correlative imaging. It also details the principal diagnostic and therapeutic procedures include implantation of pacemakers, resynchronization therapy, and ablation techniques.
Provides concise, user friendly guide to the equipment, procedures and clinical findings with which EPs need to be familiar
Delivers alternatives resource to the flagship titles available in this field - idea for those beginning training or seeking an update
Presents extensively updated material to enhance comprehension
Includes new treatments and devices for electrophysiologists trained to perform interventional cardiac electrophysiology studies (EPS) as well as surgical device implantations
