This new edition provides up-to-date comprehensive coverage of the rapidly evolving field of clinical cardiac electrophysiology. It is designed for physicians, cardiologists, cardiac electrophysiologists, and allied professionals practising or learning the speciality of clinical cardiac electrophysiology. This textbook - written entirely by two practising authorities in the field - offers a cohesive and comprehensive summary of the principles and practice of clinical cardiac electrophysiology. The authors emphasize the clinical approach to the patient and provide a fundamental, yet thorough, discussion of the primary therapeutic modalities used today in a state-of-the-art electrophysiology laboratory, including the latest pharmacotherapy options, catheter ablation treatment, and the newest implantable devices. The authors provide the reader with a concise, organized discussion of the management of patients with benign to life-threatening arrhythmias using the newest concepts, equipment, and techniques of diagnostic and therapeutic electrophysiology.
