Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Rohit R Amin, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book introduces readers to a novel and interesting perspective on emerging wireless cardiovascular monitoring.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide insights into telemedicine, including a specific cardiovascular monitoring device, and hopefully inspire others to continue medical research and development in the field of diagnostic medical products.
Audience: The book provides a common language among cardiologists, biomedical engineers, and researchers to help develop future products in the area of telemedicine intended for everyday cardiology use.
Features: A broad array of topics is explored, from basic principles of cardiac arrhythmias and the importance of ECG monitoring to the development and philosophy of proposed, cost-effective monitoring devices. The information is succinct and accompanied by well-organized algorithms and illustrations. It is an easy read even for the naive prospective reader.
Assessment: This book provides a unique perspective of and insight into the development of cardiology-related telemedicine. The authors should be congratulated on their efforts to develop a one-of-kind wireless cardiovascular monitor which, if accepted, will no doubt change the practice of cardiology and the definition of modern medicine.
