Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Douglas Kopp(Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This book, now in its fourth edition, covers the main features of cardiac rhythm disturbances. The first edition was published in 1981. This edition has been updated to provide an overview of the many new developments in the understanding and management of arrhythmias.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a practical guide to the diagnosis, investigation, and management of the main cardiac arrhythmias.
Audience: It is intended to fill the gap between those textbooks that cover only the basics of arrhythmias and those that are written for the cardiac electrophysiologist. It has been written with junior hospital doctors in mind. The book is best suited for medical students and interns.
Features: The quality and reproduction of most rhythm strips are good. The quantity of illustrations is adequate. The chapters are well organized and outlined. A summary of main points conclude each chapter. The book is quite readable and has a self-test of 58 rhythm strips at the end. There are no references.
Assessment: This book provides a useful overview for beginners in medicine and is best suited for medical students and interns. There is insufficient detail for it to be of much use to more advanced students of medicine. Because of the multitude of advances in cardiac electrophysiology in recent years, this edition is much more up-to-date than the third edition published just 5 years ago.

All arrhythmias commonly encountered are discussed. Emphasis is on those areas where problems of interpretation and mismanagement frequently occur. No bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
