The Foundations of Cardiac Pacing, Pt. II: An Illustrated Practical Guide to Rate Variable Pacing

Overview

Since the first clinical application of an atrial triggered ventricular pacemaker by Nathan, progress in technology has allowed the development of new pacing modes such as rate variable pulse generators, that adjust their basic rate according to physiological needs. In recent years, these new concepts have been used ever more widely, offering significant benefits to a large number of suitable patients and also to those patients who could not previously benefit from pacing.

Overview

Since the first clinical application of an atrial triggered ventricular pacemaker by Nathan, progress in technology has allowed the development of new pacing modes such as rate variable pulse generators, that adjust their basic rate according to physiological needs. In recent years, these new concepts have been used ever more widely, offering significant benefits to a large number of suitable patients and also to those patients who could not previously benefit from pacing.

The second part of The Foundations of Cardiac Pacing, An Illustrated Guide to Rate Variable Pacing, continues the spirit of the Bakken Research Center Series and offers a contemporary overview of advanced cardiac pacing. The editors assume the reader is familiar with The Foundations of Cardiac Pacing, Part I.

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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert J. Hariman, MD, FACC (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This is the second part of a multiauthored textbook by Dr. Richard Sutton et al. The topics span from very basic concepts like the hemodynamics of various modes of pacing, to more clinical and practical aspects, like pacemaker trouble shooting, follow up, and cost. The authors are pacemaker experts from both sides of the Atlantic.
Purpose: The purpose is to give an advance overview of pacing an area not previously dealt with by previous textbooks.
Audience: This is an esoteric book on pacing that is best reserved for cardiologists and cardiac electrophysiologists dealing with pacemaker patients.
Features: Various basic and clinical aspects of pacing are dealt with. The diagrams and illustrations are highly explanatory to the topics discussed. The chapter on trouble shooting contains educational cases.
Assessment: This is an excellent book on various basic and clinical aspects of cardiac pacing written by world experts in this field. This book is highly recommended to physicians caring for pacemaker patients.

Overviews basics of advanced pacing, covering areas including cardiodynamics, workings of dual chamber and sensor controlled pacemakers, and implantation and clinical results of rate variable pacemakers. Discusses single lead VDD pacing, clinical experience with DDI pacing, pacing in carotid sinus and vasovagal syndrome, and cardiac pacing in children. Other subjects are indications for pacing, programming of rate variable devices and complications, troubleshooting, and pacing in the health-care system. Includes b&w and color photos. Annotation c.
