Now in its updated Fifth Edition, this highly popular book provides a practical introduction to the basic principles of cardiac pacing. It explains when and how to place temporary and permanent pacemakers, how to set rates and make adjustments, and how to monitor patients to ensure that the pacemaker is functioning properly. The complexities of cardiac electrophysiology are discussed in clinically relevant terms. This edition features an extensively revised chapter on implantable cardioverter defibrillators and antitachycardia pacing and expanded coverage of MRI in patient follow-up. The book includes a glossary of terms and two appendices--a conversion chart and pacing paradigms.
