This book translates fundamental knowledge in basic cardiac electrophysiology from the bench to the bedside. Revised and updated for its second edition, the text offers new coverage of the molecular mechanisms of ion channel behavior and its regulation, complex arrhythmias, and the broadening roles of devices and ablation. Clear, straightforward explanations are illustrated by plentiful diagrams to make the material accessible to the non-specialist.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Based on a series of lectures for clinicians and advanced medical students. Reviews the basic principles of cardiac electrophysiology and cellular mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias, translating the basic science into practical information. Considers such aspects as bioelectricity, ion channels and their regulation, pacemaker synchronization, and spiral wave activity and the old problem of reentry. Nicely illustrated with line drawings.
