Overview

Cardiac Arrhythmias is a long-established and widely respected guide to the interpretation and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders. Acting as a practical handbook to dip into when required, and also as a comprehensive textbook, it covers the basics and detail of cardiac arrhythmias at a realistic level without overwhelming the reader with unnecessary technical details and references.
For this seventh edition, the content has been brought up to date throughout, incorporating results from recent major clinical trials, developments in the treatment of atrial fibrillation, greater sophistication in pacemaker technology and the increased availability of defibrillators.
The book will provide invaluable advice to junior hospital doctors, coronary care nurses, cardiac technicians, higher level medical students and practising physicians requiring a ready reference to this important subject.

Highly Commended at the 2002 BMA Medical Book Competition Awards (Sixth edition): 'A thoroughly usable handbook to dip into and practical textbook covering the area of the basics and detail of cardiac arrhythmias for trainee cardiologists, technicians, GPSI cardiology and cardiologists but without unnecessary technical detail and references'

From the reviews of previous editions:
I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it unreservedly to anaesthetists who wish to improve their knowledge of cardiac arrhythmias. My advice is to buy the book and read it. British Journal of Anaesthesia a well conceived practical guide to the interpretation and treatment of the main cardiac rhythm disturbances. Many a medical registrar will be grateful for this clear, concise, up-to-date manual Lancet
This book presents a concise and simplified approach to the diagnosis and management of abnormalities in cardiac rhythmOne of the books strengths is the number and quality of electrocardiographic tracings that are juxtaposed with the text to highlight important points New England Journal of Medicine
This book about cardiac arrhythmias is of much educational value and is written and edited simply and clearly European Heart Journal
My choice would be Bennetts Cardiac Arrhythmias which is rather more advanced and therefore suitable for junior hospital staff. This includes a list of key learning points at the end of each section and ends with a challenging ECG quiz British Medical Journal

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John F. Moran, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This book covers cardiac arrhythmias in a well focused format.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a reasonable and practical guide to the diagnosis and, in part, the management of all cardiac arrhythmias. There is also an update of some current thinking on arrhythmias that includes radio frequency ablation.
Audience: The book is designed for medical residents and medical students, but nurses would also see some value here.
Features: The book covers the diagnosis of common cardiac arrhythmias and presents many well done illustrations with a pink grid with black tracings. All illustrations are clear and good. The book starts with chapters on premature beats and escape beats and then proceeds into tachycardias and bradycardias. Each chapter has a table at the end containing the main points of the respective arrhythmia considered there. This book is considered a manual and there is a practical description of arrhythmias, but it is extensive enough to present some information on right ventricular outflow tachycardias and the signal averaged electrocardiogram, overdrive pacing for ventricular tachycardia, the Brugado syndrome and retrograde concealed conduction. There is a pointed chapter on neurogenic syncope and a good chapter on the controversies of antiarrhythmic drugs. There are some differences in American practice; for instance, for acute drug conversion of atrial fibrillation — the author does not mention intravenous Ibutilide which may not be available in the United Kingdom. The chapter on arrhythmias, post myocardial infarction, suggests that ventricular tachycardia might well be treated by Amiodarone or Sotolol. Nowadays, in the United States, intracardiac defibrillators would get a consideration. In the chapter on temporary pacing, the author suggests that the subclavian vein is the best approach. In the United States, the jugular venous approach is more popular.
Assessment: The book meets expectations and is planned to cover a gap between the very basics of electrocardiography and the many detailed electrophysiologic books available. It is designed for house officers. The material is easily accessible, it is well written and the illustrations are good. In addition, there are 94 practice electrocardiograms. The index is good. The book contains no references, which is in keeping with the goals. Overall, it is a good addition to the literature.
