Description: This book reviews the basic cellular biology, biophysics, physiology, and pharmacogenomics of electrophysiology before moving on to the clinical aspects such as mechanisms, clinical features, pharmacogenomics, pharmacology, electrical therapy, and surgical treatment of arrhythmias.
Purpose: The objective is to educate scientists and clinicians interested in electrophysiology in the basic science and the clinical mechanisms, features, and management of arrhythmias.
Audience: This book appeals to a broad audience of basic scientists and clinicians in various stages of training and practice.
Features: It begins with a meticulous description of the cellular, molecular, biophysical, and genetic basis of normal and pathological impulse generation and propagation. After these basic science concepts, the book introduces clinical aspects of larger electrophysiological concepts before delving into pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of arrhythmias. This book uniquely merges basic science concepts with practical clinical pearls. The illustrations are very helpful in understanding the physiology, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of arrhythmias.
Assessment: This book uniquely provides a comprehensive review of basic science concepts of electrophysiology that are later translated into practical clinical terms. This edition includes the latest information on evolving concepts in the field.
