Cardiac Electrophysiology and Catheter Ablation is the first handbook-sized practical training guide for medical, technical and industry personnel needing easily accessible, detailed information on the theory and practice of modern invasive investigation and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.Highly illustrated throughout, it both simplifies and clarifies the basic electrophysiological principles of many arrhythmias, as well as providing practical advice on performing catheter ablation in patients with a variety of arrhythmias. The step-by-step guidance provided is designed to facilitatethe use of the book for real-life scenarios in the catheter laboratory and to demystify this traditionally inaccessible field for the wider cardiology community.
Dr Yaver Bashir is a consultant cardiologist with a special interest in all aspects of cardiac arrhythmia management, including diagnostic electrophysiology, catheter ablation and pacing/ICDs. He is active in research and teaching, and has published approximately 60 papers in peer-review journals on all aspects of cardiology, particu...
