Clinical management of cardiac arrhythmias
A comprehensive discussion of arrhythmia diagnosis and treatment, focusing on the principles, indications, and applications of electrophysiologic techniques in the treatment of specific arrhythmias, is presented in this excellent text. Topics include programmed electrical stimulation, interventional electrophysiology, temporary and permanent antitachycardia and rate-adaptive pacing techniques, signal averaging, and much more. Patient care and nursing management are integrated throughout the text.
