Pacemakers and ICDs
Pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators have moved out of the tertiary referral centers and are now routinely implanted in many large general hospitals. This book is designed for the general cardiology trainee at the beginning of their pacing career to act as an aid as they start implanting, whether they are in electrophysiology, devices, or general cardiology. Others who would find this book useful include the cardiac technician, who would be involved in the device implantation and follow-up.
This book is an easy access pocket book to refer to for queries regarding programming, trouble-shooting and patient concerns. The book includes a helpful section on important and helpful tips, and is written in the successful Oxford Handbook format.
