Cardiac Pacement has undergone a rapid development in technique and application in the last years. Methods of cardiac pacement have become more successful but also more complicated. This book is written for internists in their practice and also for the specialists in cardiology to improve their therapeutic measures being informed about specific problems in cardiac pacement. Apart from the basics of cardiac pacement also indications, selection of pacers, implantation methods and complications are described. A special focus is on postoperative monitoring of the patient. A vast amount of illustrations is combined with very instructive text. This book is for daily practice and desk reference for practicioners and clinicians.
