Book Description

February 2002 1901346374 978-1901346374 1
This text is a comprehensive introductory level guide to invasive cardiac EP studies. Its focus is to enable the reader to understand and interpret the recording and stimulation techniques used during an EP study. The primary emphasis is on tachyarrhythmia diagnosis, but the book also includes bradycadias, the principles of catheter ablation and new mapping techniques. The main concepts are explained diagrammatically in 4 colour original diagrams with clinical multichannel intracardiac recordings used to illustrate the concepts discussed. The book provides sufficient practical information to enable the reader to plan an EP study and interpret the intracardiac recordings of most common tachycardias. The work gives a practical guide to cardiac electrophysiology, achieved by combining original electrophysiology tracings and line diagrams with a concise text.

The Handbook of Cardiac Electrophysiology is aimed for the cardiology of EP fellow, engineers, technicians, nurses, and others working in field. The book begins with an excellent review of the basic concepts of the electrophysiology procedure as well as the instruments used. This review is very concise and clear. The book progresses to explain the induction and interpretation of supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. Each section provides a very organized, clear description of the arrhythmia. In addition, the text is accompanied with excellent illustrations of arrhythmia circuits and EP tracings. The methodology used allows for a clear understanding that can be applied immediately to the EP laboratory experience. The organization of the chapters also allows for quick review. The book concludes with a section on mapping techniques and new technologies that may be encountered in current or upcoming practice. This book is an excellent resource to provide a fundamental understanding of the electrophysiology laboratory. Furthermore, it is organized in a manner to be a constant reference for ongoing learning and review. It is also a valuable resource for those teaching the science; as it presents a very effective manner in which to teach both basic and complex ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent self study tool! May 12, 2007
This is a great book to jump-start your EP education. Nice photos, it is easy to read and it should be purchased by all new EP Lab staff members. At TCA Institute, we recomended this book to all the "Fundamentals of EP Course" attendees. Maha Rinaudo, Ph.D.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great basic book January 15, 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I can't say enough good things about this book. It's an easy to read book with many helpful diagrams. It's not a comprehensive EP text (like Zipes or Josephson), but it's excellent for the basics. I have found the diagrams to be extremely helpful in explaining EP topics to other cardiology fellows. I'd recommend this book to all EP trainees.
