Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Saima Karim, D.O.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
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.
From the Publisher
"An indispensable reference source for anyone interested in having a better understanding of cardiac electrophysiology." - Circulation, review of Cardiac Electrophysiology, 4th Edition

"A remarkable book that lives up to the promise of its title. It is an encyclopedic review of all areas of adult and pediatric cardiac electrophysiology ... A necessary addition to the library of every cardiology training program and every electrophysiologist, as well as all physicians with a special interest in arrhythmias." - NEJM, review of Cardiac Electrophysiology, 4th Edition

Brian Olshansky
This second edition, edited by two internationally recognized experts and written by many contributors, purports to be a comprehensive, definitive text covering all of cardiac electrophysiology. A smaller first edition was published five years ago. The authors hope to provide a complete and authoritative book on cardiac electrophysiology. They include basic and clinical aspects of electrophysiology in this 14-section, 138-chapter book. The objectives are worthy and the book is needed. Generally, the authors meet their stated objectives. The authors do not indicate the intended audience. A small audience of cardiac electrophysiology fellows and clinical and basic electrophysiologists (MDs and PhDs) will benefit. General cardiologists, surgeons, internists, and medical residents are not the target audience. The editors and 173 contributors are credible authorities, among the best known in their field. The contributors generously illustrate this book with black-and-white graphs, tables, figures, and charts. Most are of excellent quality, but some are too small. The color illustrations will benefit only a few. Most chapters contain pertinent references (in large numbers) but most references are over two to three years old. The table of contents is adequate. Some subjects are included in more than one section. Some chapters are narrow in scope with abstruse titles. The index is difficult to use. The book is large and heavy, but impressive and highly attractive. This book is one of the most comprehensive texts ever written in cardiac electrophysiology. The new information is enough to justify replacement of the previous edition. It is a monumental, multiauthored, book with numerous chapters.The content and presentation of most chapters are simply excellent, but the quality, format, and references vary. Although this will be a definitive text in cardiac electrophysiology, the editors underemphasize important (often, clinically based) subjects at the expense of more narrow topics. The large number of chapters (many of them short) makes the work disjointed and significant overlap exists. Some chapters are not complete and provide biased information. Despite these shortcomings, this edition is needed and welcomed. I highly recommended it for cardiac electrophysiologists, libraries, and bookstores.
