Edited by world-renowned cardiologist Kenneth Ellenbogen, MD, and collaboratively written by five expert physicians and allied health professionals, Essential Concepts of Electrophysiology and Pacing Through Case Studies guides the reader in developing and refining the key skill of analyzing tracings – one of the most essential proficiencies in electrophysiology.
With 60 cases comprising more than 120 tracings, figures, and tables and accompanied by multiple-choice questions, this scholarly yet eminently practical text delineates the core concepts and brings the reader directly into each case, offering EP physicians and fellows, device representatives and engineers, and other allied health professionals a fundamental understanding of the most important concepts on which the practice of EP is based.
Appropriate for professionals with different levels of proficiency, Essential Concepts of Electrophysiology and Pacing includes a wide array of basic to advanced tracings that range from surface ECGs to pacemaker and ICD recordings to complex intracardiac tracings that will prove vital in strengthening and sharpening practical skills. Relevant references included with each case allow the reader to delve even deeper into the principles presented and will be invaluable in preparing for IBHRE, ABIM, and other EP certification exams.
The prevalence of obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes – three links of the same ‘atherothrombotic chain’ – has reached pandemic proportions worldwide. As a result, our civilization is at war against a threatening enemy: cardio-diabetes.
It goes without saying that a correct arrhythmia diagnosis is a prerequisite to catheter ablation regardless of the presence of sophisticated mapping and imaging technologies. Electrophysiological maneuvers are fundamental to this process, and proper selection and interpretation of maneuvers constitute a core skill of the electrophysiologist. In this volume, we make the case that most maneuvers are fundamentally similar in principle and can be understood by appreciating a few basic physiological and anatomical principles.
This popular and practical text presents all the information clinicians need to use the EKG in everyday practice and interpret hypertrophy and enlargement, arrhythmias, conduction blocks, pre-excitation syndromes, and myocardial infarction. It is an ideal reference for medical students in ICM courses, house officers, or anyone directly involved in patient care, whether student, teacher, or practitioner. This title features: four-color design to make models, illustrations and tracings clearer; more questions for faculty test generator; numerous new tracings; expanded sections on subjects where new developments have made deeper understanding possible including atrial fibrillation, long QT syndrome, apical ballooning syndrome and more 200 facsimiles of EKG strips; clinical examples to help students get a sense of the clinical use of EKG; numerous case studies; and, online companion site with fully searchable text and image bank; plus, an interactive question bank for students, EKG Image with explanation test bank and test generator for faculty.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in developed countries, but is quickly becoming an epidemic in such well-populated countries as China, India, and other developing nations. Cardiovascular research is the key to the prevention, diagnosis, and management of cardiovascular disease.
This fully updated, new edition of ABC of Interventional Cardiology is an easy-to-read, practical guide for the non-specialist. It presents the complex aspects of interventional cardiology in a clear and concise manner, and explains the different interventions for coronary artery disease, valvular and structural heart disease, and electrophysiology, ordered by clinical setting.The ABC of Interventional Cardiology covers the core knowledge on techniques and management, and highlights the evidence base.

An essential reference for students and practitioners working with exercise electrocardiograms (ECGs), Practical ECG for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine guides readers from theory to applied interpretation of normal and abnormal ECG traces. The text is based on the authors’ clinical experience, published research, and over a decade of dedicated study on the interpretation of ECGs from clinical patients to elite athletes both at rest and during exercise.This resource offers clear protocols for ECGs with an emphasis on athletes.
Sunao Tawara’s work on the excitation conduction system of the mammalian heart paved the way for the advancement of modern cardiology in the 20th century. This is an English translation of his account of the conduction system from the atrioventricular node through the His-Purkinje system to the ordinary ventricular muscle fibres.
With the advent of 64-slice CT scanners and other hi-tech imaging devices that allow clinicians to diagnose CV disease noninvasively, cardiologists are clamoring for the ability – and the knowledge required – to image their patients and are moving into formerly radiology-restricted territory – similar to their move into the cath-lab several years ago. Currently, all cardiology trainees have several months learning the different noninvasive modalities, primarily echo. But, because CT allows the clinician to view the coronary arteries, and MR offers excellent ‘viewing, some of the CV leaders are suggesting a 4th year fellowship – a cardiovascular imaging fellowship to provide the trainee with enough experience to perform various noninvasive tests, diagnose his or her patient and manage his or her patient’s care because the general cardiologist now has a wide variety of imaging options, he or she needs both general and specific information: what to order, when; which modality offers the ‘best bang for the patient’s buck’; and anticipated patient outcomes.
