Overview

Fully reflecting the evolution of device therapy, the second edition of Drs. Hayes and Friedman’s popular guide continues to provide sensible, matter-of-fact methods for understanding and caring for patients with permanent pacemakers, ICDs, and CRT devices.

Presenting a large amount of current information in an easily digestible form, the book:

  • Proceeds logically from descriptions of device indications to selection of hardware and implementation
  • Helps you understand the technical capabilities of pacemakers, ICDs, and CRT and how to apply this knowledge clinically
  • Facilitates reading and comprehension by limiting the number of authors; Drs. Hayes and Friedman are involved in all of the chapters

With CRT discussions in almost every chapter, this thorough revision also covers:

  • Internet-based remote monitoring
  • Device “recalls”
  • New insights on how device therapy can prolong life and improve its quality

Chapters on Programming and Troubleshooting are revised to keep pace with rapid developments. Clear illustrations and tables help you assess electrocardiographic and technical information. An especially important chapter on follow-up will enhance the care of patients with arrhythmias.

Whether you are new to implantable cardiac device therapy or looking to refresh your knowledge, Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach, 2nd Edition, will help you better manage the care of your cardiac patients.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Robert J. Hariman
This book, written by three experts from Mayo Clinic, describes their approach in managing patients with permanent pacemakers and automatic implantable cardioverter/defibrillator (AICD). The authors would like this book to be used as a practical reference for clinicians dealing with patients who have pacemakers or AICDs. This book is very useful for cardiac electrophysiologists and nurses managing pacemaker and AICD patients. Many important aspects of permanent pacemakers and AICDs are covered, spanning from the basic foundation of pacing and defibrillation, to implantation techniques of these devices, to the follow up. The book contains informative pictures and diagrams that make it easy to understand. This is a well written book by experts in pacing and defibrillation that may serve as a day-to-day reference for clinicians and nurses dealing with patients with permanent pacemakers and AICDs.

The three authors, all affiliated with the Mayo Clinic, provide practical methods for understanding and caring for patients with permanent pacemakers and ICDs. They present a logical progression from descriptions of device indications to their selection, to device implantation and subsequent management, with sections on troubleshooting, complications, and follow-up.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marc N. Saad, B.S., M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book does an excellent job of explaining the basics of managing permanent pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices.
Purpose: It offers the clinical knowledge needed to manage patients with these devices.
Audience: The intended audience includes caregivers (students, nurses, physicians, and midlevel providers) who are getting acquainted with these devices. The book is particularly well suited for those beginning cardiology fellowship training and with further experience.
Features: Chapters cover device and lead selection, potential complications, programming, and troubleshooting. Excellent figures, pictures, and tables throughout the book help readers better understand the material.
Assessment: The authors are experts in the field of electrophysiology device therapy. The second edition is well timed, offering the knowledge needed to make decisions regarding electrophysiology device management.
From the Publisher
“This book does an excellent job of explaining the basics of managing permanent pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices.” (Doody's, April 2009)

    Highly recommended

    I bought this book to prepare for IBHRE boards and can say that it is very well written and to the point. Gives many practical points and upto date with current literature. Must have for learning entry level device therapy.
