Description

The advances in technology surrounding pacemakers has led to an inevitable increase in the complexity of ECG interpretation of pacemaker-generated rhythms. Simplified Interpretation of Pacemaker ECGs offers a step-by-step description of pacemaker ECG interpretations. An invaluable resource for cardiologists, residents, house officers, general clinicians, and nurse practitioners, this text includes: a step-by-step description of pacemaker ECG interpretations a brief refresher course on basic ECG interpretation with an overview of the conduction system of the heart a review of the hardware associated with pacing an explanation and discussion of the sensing and pacing function coverage of the most common pacing modalities and unusual pacing situations a series of case studies that bring together all of the information learned and provide the reader with a self-assessment of topics to review ECGs, charts, and illustrations
