1 - 2 weeks availability


Cardiac Electrophysiology and Catheter Ablation is the first handbook-sized practical training guide for medical, technical and industry personnel needing easily accessible, detailed information on the theory and practice of modern invasive investigation and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Highly illustrated throughout, it both simplifies and clarifies the basic electrophysiological principles of many arrhythmias, as well as providing practical advice on performing catheter ablation in patients with a variety of arrhythmias. The step-by-step guidance provided is designed to facilitate the use of the book for real-life scenarios in the catheter laboratory and to demystify this traditionally inaccessible field for the wider cardiology community.

About Author

Dr Kim Rajappan is a consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. He completed his general cardiology training and subspecialty training in cardiac electrophysiology and device therapy in London, predominantly at the Hammersmith Hospital and St. Bartholomew's Hospital. His research and clinical interests include all aspects of arrhythmia patient management, particularly catheter ablation of complex cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.
