Overview

International authorities discuss virtually every aspect of cardiac pacing and pacemakers in the Second Edition of this comprehensive reference, including temporary cardiac pacing, antitachycardia pacing, new indications for cardiac pacing, complications of cardiac pacing, and interference with cardiac pacing. Clinically focused and practical, it contains essential information for anyone with patients with pacemakers and offers valuable information not available in any other text! This edition is completely revised and updated to reflect the latest information.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Hanna Konarzewska, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This textbook is a comprehensive review of scientific principles, technology, and clinical aspects of cardiac pacing and defibrillation. Since the first edition in 1995, this field has expanded significantly and new technologies afford impressive expansion of device therapy.
Purpose: The purpose is to present complete information on the current state of knowledge pertaining to pacemakers and defibrillators. As the application of cardiac devices continues to grow, familiarity with available technologies becomes necessary not only to the specialist, but also to all in the medical field and device industry.
Audience: A wide audience includes physicians taking care of patients with rhythm problems, those implanting pacemakers and defibrillators, nurses and technical professionals involved in device follow-up, as well as engineers and sales representatives who also interact with physicians and patients. The editors have assembled an impressive group of collaborators, all well known and regarded for their expertise in the field.
Features: The book is organized in four sections, the first is devoted to the basic science of device technology, the second is a discussion of sensor mechanisms used in pacing and defibrillation, and the last two sections are devoted to clinical aspects of therapy and monitoring of the patients with pacemakers and defibrillators. Electrocardiography, radiology, indications, troubleshooting, and complication management are all discussed completely in separate chapters. An extensive bibliography is presented in support of opinions expressed in the textbook, with frequent references to personal experiences and practice among those regarded as experts in the field — this latter is quite a unique feature. As often is the case in multi-authored textbooks, the editors do not escape repetitions leading to close to a thousand pages of text; however, this is still a smooth read and can serve as a quick reference thanks to good organization and a clear index.
Assessment: In such a rapidly growing and evolving field as pacing and defibrillation, frequent updates are necessary. This second edition is needed and timely. By tapping into the expertise of many well-known and well-regarded authorities in implantable devices, the editors meet their objective of presenting interdisciplinary knowledge in this sophisticated field.

Booknews
New edition of a text that offers guidance on both cardiac pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators. It examines the clinical, engineering, and practical aspects of patient and device management from before implantation through follow-up. With an emphasis on the interdisciplinary nature of the field, Ellenbogen (electrophysiology at the Medical College of Virginia, McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Virginia Commonwealth U.), G. Neal Kay (cardiology, U. of Alabama) and Bruce L. Wilkoff (cardiac pacing and cardiovascular computing services, The Cleveland Clinic Foundation) present 36 contributions that discuss basic and clinical concepts; artificial sensors for pacing, defibrillators, and hemodynamics; and pacemaker and defibrillator electrocardiography. Contains about 745 x-rays and figures. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
