Manual of Electrophysiology is a comprehensive guide to cardiac electrophysiology, brought together by a team of US based experts in this field. The book focuses on current understanding and the most recent advances in electrophysiology.
Consisting of 16 chapters, the book begins with basic understanding of the mechanisms of arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), the pharmacology of antiarrhythmic drugs, and an introduction to electrophysiology studies. Various arrhythmias are discussed in detail, from tachycardia and bradycardia to cardiomyopathy and Brugada Syndrome.
The latter part of the book provides a number of therapeutic guidelines for heart conditions, including surgical and catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac resynchronisation therapy and ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring.
With 350 full colour images and illustrations enhancing practical advice on the diagnosis and therapy of cardiac diseases, Manual of Electrophysiology provides indispensable guidance for physicians, clinicians and cardiologists.
