Editorial Reviews

Review



“The
book is mainly addressed to electrophysiologists, but is certainly useful also
for students, general  cardiologists or
other clinical specialists. It can be interesting also for physicists, nurses
and biomedical engineers. We suggest this publication to nuclear physicians and
residents interested in nuclear cardiology regarding growing interest connected
with old and new radionuclide procedures, including receptor imaging, in diagnosing
and evaluating patients with cardiac diseases affecting rhythm and in assessing
conduction of the signal.”  (Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging,
1 December 2012)

"This book is essential in providing up-to-date and concise information for physicians who want the knowledge and skills to manage patients." (Doody's, November 2008)

This fifth edition of Cardiac Pacing and ICDs continues to be an invaluable and accessible clinical reference guide for cardiologists, electrophysiologists, surgeons, fellows, residents, nurses, PAs, and technicians.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to assist me in cardiovascular schooling and found it to be a great book for gaining an understanding of the principles of pacemaker therapy. At times though, the text is a bit wordy and dry. However, I find it very useful for reading up on anything from the indications for both temporary and permament devices to post-implantation evaluation, complications, and interventions. Unfortunately, with the rapidly changing world of pacemaker therapy, this book may soon find itself obsolete. Hope for an updated edition.

I'm a nurse anesthetist and work in the electrophysiology lab a lot. I was challenged to take the IBHRE exam for device certification. I was advised to purchase a textbook and read it, so I picked this one. It is dry at some points yet remains readable. It was my only resource I purchased (besides a really helpful app for my iPad) and with it and work in the EP lab, in few months I went from basically no formally obtained knowledge about cardiac pacing and ICDs to passing my IBHRE.

This book was written by one of the best in the cardiac pacing field. The only problem is his dry and wordy compilation of cardiac pacing.
