Cardiac Mapping is the cardiac electrophysiologist’s GPS. It will guide you to new places in the heart and help you find the old places more easily…a valuable addition to your bookshelf

Douglas P. Zipes, from the Foreword.

Over the course of three previous editions, this book has become the acknowledged gold standard reference on the electro-anatomical mapping of the heart. This new edition features greatly expanded coverage—the number of chapters have doubled to 80 with 40 new chapters—on leading edge science, new clinical applications and future frontiers, authored by a who’s-who of global electrophysiology.

This unique text offers truly comprehensive coverage of all areas of cardiac mapping, from core scientific principals to methodological and technical considerations to the latest data that you can put to work caring for patients. In addition, the all new 4th edition adds essential content on:

  • Mapping in experimental models of arrhythmias
  • Mapping supraventricular and ventricular tachyarrhythmias
  • New catheter-based techniques
  • Also featuring a companion website with video clips illustrating essential techniques described in the text

The only state-of-the-art, stand-alone text on this dynamic subject, Cardiac Mapping is an essential resource for basic scientists, clinical electrophysiologists, cardiologists and all physicians who care for patients with cardiac arrhythmias.

This book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sean P. Tierney, M.D.(Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This multiauthored, comprehensive textbook of cardiac electrophysiology encompasses all aspects of heart rhythm mapping. This edition, an update of the 1993 edition, appropriately addresses most of the major advances in the field that have occurred since then.
Purpose: The authors' goal is to provide a much needed update on the technologic advances that have occurred in the field over the past 10 years. This book fulfills this admirable goal quite well with its collection of world-renowned authors. Except for a few chapters which were barely changed, most are completely rewritten and encompass all the new mapping techniques.
Audience: The authors intentionally have written this book for those with some basic knowledge of electrophysiology. This book can be very useful to both basic science researchers studying mechanisms of arrhythmias and to those in the trenches seeing patients every day. It is written at an advanced level and probably is not for the medical student or general practitioner. The authors are well known to those in electrophysiology and, as a collective whole, represent some of the brightest minds in the field.
Features: The book is divided into seven major sections and starts with an interesting review of George Ralph Mines. The book covers in detail all aspects of mapping from the noninvasive to the invasive, from the supraventricular to the ventricular. It provides an excellent overview of the technical considerations of mapping and correlates the clinical applications. It is extremely current and covers most available mapping systems. It is written by the people most published in using these mapping systems. The chapters are well written and accompanied by superb illustrations including a color appendix. The only criticism is that a few chapters appear unchanged from 10 years ago.
Assessment: This concise and well written book would be extremely useful to any practicing clinical electrophysiologist or basic scientist in the field of cardiac arrhythmias. It doesn't replace the need for Josephson's Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology: Techniques and Interpretations, 3rd Edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2002), or Zipes' Cardiac Electrophysiology: From Cell to Bedside (W.B. Saunders, 2000), but it is a welcome addition and more detailed in the science of mapping. It is a long awaited update from the first edition. Let's hope we don't have to wait another 10 years for the third edition.
Robert J. Hariman
This book on cardiac electrophysiological mapping covers various aspects of cardiac mapping from the history to new technological developments. The contributors are experts in the field; many of them, in fact, are world-renowned. The purpose is to provide current information on cardiac electrophysiological mapping. The editorial comments by various experts are meant to give a general state-of-the-art overview and possibly to generate new ideas for future development. The audience is not clearly stated. However, because of the complexities of this field, I believe that the target audience should be basic and clinical cardiac electrophysiologists. The contributors are the biggest strength of this book. The pictures are excellent; some of them are even in color. The references are pertinent and current. This is an excellent book on cardiac mapping. I highly recommend it to basic and clinical cardiac electrophysiologists.
From the Publisher
“Summary: This book belongs on every basic and clinical EP’s desk.” (Pacing And Clinical Electrophysiology, 18 March 2015)
