Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elaine C Hannigan, RN, MSN (Purdue University School of Nursing)
Description: Practitioners new to the field of electrophysiology need a training manual that illustrates concepts. Using large, easy-to-read diagrams and illustrations, this book helps to meet this need.
Purpose: Initially designed as a workbook with a collection of tracings to illustrate the basic concepts of electrophysiology to students and electrophysiology fellows, this publication has expanded to become a more comprehensive book and training manual. Large, easy-to-read illustrations help explain the topics.
Audience: It is intended to be used by nurses, technologists, students, and electrophysiology fellows performing diagnostic studies used in the treatment of tachycardia. All of the contributing authors work in the division of cardiology at the University of Western Ontario.
Features: The book begins with a discussion of the basic concepts of catheter placement, signal processing, basic conduction intervals, conduction velocity and refractoriness. It then provides more descriptive detail on supraventricular tachycardia diagnostic studies and progresses to more advanced rhythm tracings. The large, colorful, easy-to-read illustrations are the best feature of this book. The supplemental commentaries accompanying each tracing also are very useful for beginning practitioners.
Assessment: This would be very useful as a training manual or reference for beginning practitioners. I anticipate that it would be kept in an electrophysiology lab so that staff could refer to the illustrations and descriptions.
