A basic guide to the concepts and clinical techniques of heart pacing, for physicians, nurses, technicians, and engineers. Information is presented in the same sequence as it becomes relevant during the evaluation of a potential pacemaker patient, illustrated with b&w photos and electrocardiograph tracings. This second edition reflects new pacing technologies, with a chapter on implantable cardioverter defibrillators and new information on rate adaptive pacing, mode switching, and lead extraction.

Reviewer: Anil Verma, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
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.
From the Publisher
“The book is mainly addressed to electrophysiologists, but is certainly useful also for students, general  cardiologists or other clinical specialists. It can be interesting also for physicists, nurses and biomedical engineers. We suggest this publication to nuclear physicians and residents interested in nuclear cardiology regarding growing interest connected with old and new radionuclide procedures, including receptor imaging, in diagnosing and evaluating patients with cardiac diseases affecting rhythm and in assessing conduction of the signal.”  (Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging,

"This book is essential in providing up-to-date and concise information for physicians who want the knowledge and skills to manage patients." (Doody's, November 2008)

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"Cardiac Pacing and ICDs is a book to be passionate about. The only comparable passion would be shoes and if this book were to be a pair of shoes then they would definitely be my favourite pair...Overall this book is a superb text on pacing, with additional chapters on ICD therapy. It is essential reading for cardiac practitioners with, or hoping to develop, specialist knowledge in pacemakers." British Journal of Cardiac Pacing
