Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John Lee, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This handbook describes the management of patients with commonly encountered arrhythmias.
Purpose: It is intended to provide an understanding of cardiac arrhythmia with additional insight into clinical presentation, diagnosis, and management.
Audience: This is a reference for cardiologists, physicians in training, and students interested in the fundamentals of arrhythmia management.
Features: The 12 chapters cover common arrhythmias or clinical scenarios. Readers are first introduced to basic concepts and then those concepts are applied to clinical situations. The strength of this book lies in the way it helps readers without an extensive background in electrophysiology to understand how arrhythmias are diagnosed and managed in day-to-day clinical cardiology.
Assessment: Overall, this is a well-organized handbook that provides a clearer understanding of arrhythmia diagnosis and management.
