Clinical Approaches to Tachyarrhythmias, Mechanisms of Arrythmias
Without knowledge of the target of arrhythmia treatment, the therapy cannot be aimed in the right direction. The key to successful treatment is an understanding of the mechanism of the arrhythmia. Knowing, for example, that conduction through the right bundle branch block is a critical component of bundle branch reentrant tachycardia identifies an easy target for ablation therapy.
The aim of the Clinical Approaches to Tachyarryhthmias series is to update the physician, cardiologist, and all those responsible for the the care of patients with cardiac arrhythmias. Mechanisms of Arrhythmias provides the information the physician needs to recognize the mechanisms of a particular clinical arrhythmia. In a clear, readable manner, the author explores the complicated circumstances of transmembrane ion flux, impaired conduction, disturbed repolarization, and the generation of abnormal cardiac impulses.
