Description: This is a fully revised and updated fifth edition of a comprehensive guide to cardiac pacing and implantable cardiac defibrillators by recognized leaders in this field.
Purpose: The purpose is to familiarize readers with the basics of cardiac pacing including indications, hemodynamics, complications, and patient follow-up and trouble shooting. By integrating new developments in this field, the book also aims to provide an in-depth overview of intracardiac defibrillator and cardiac resynchronization therapy.
Audience: This will be of interest to practicing cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and cardiology and electrophysiology fellows in training. Internal medicine and primary care physicians who seek to gain further insight into electrophysiological device therapy may want to refer to this book.
Features: The book is well organized with concise chapters, numerous illustrations, tables with excellent review of ACC/AHA guidelines for device-based therapy for cardiac rhythm disturbances. It begins with an introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the conduction system and not only provides an in-depth review of indications for cardiac pacing, hemodynamics of pacing, implantation of the device, and subsequent patient follow-up, but also offers information on the implantable cardiac defibrillator and cardiac resynchronization therapy.
Assessment: As more and more patients are diagnosed with rhythm disturbances and heart failure, there is bound to be an increased need for devices to manage these conditions. Thus, this book is essential in providing up-to-date and concise information for physicians who want the knowledge and skills to manage patients in need of cardiac pacing, defibrillation, and resynchronization therapy.
