Mayo Clinic Electrophysiology Manual is the first comprehensive guide to the electrical activity of biological cells and tissues and the techniques of electrophysiology. Through a case-based discussion of patients with arrhythmias, the book illustrates the various contemporary techniques fordiagnosis, imaging, and physiology-based therapeutic ablation. Section one addresses the basics of electrophysiology, including device placement, recording, measurement, diagnosis, imaging, amperometry, and physiology-based therapeutic ablation, helping the reader appreciate and more fully understand the complexity and lessons of the emergent specialty. Thesecond section is a case-based discussion of adult and pediatric arrhythmias broken down into twenty patient case studies, intended to help the student and clinician apply their understanding of electrophysiology to real presentations and think about how to plan and execute invasive study andablation. Each of the twenty case chapters features a question and answer section in order to aid study and retention of material.Replete with full-page color images of intracardiac electrograms, fluoroscopic images, ultrasound images, advanced mapping, and correlated anatomic dissection, Mayo Clinic Electrophysiology Manual is the first focused exploration of the topic and is specifically designed to help both students andpractitioners understand and integrate techniques into their daily practice. At present, clinicians have had to piece together information on electrophysiology from a variety of sources, often leaving gaps in knowledge. Mayo Clinic Electrophysiology Manual provides the clinician with a single authoritative guide and quick reference. Through in-depth analysis of electrophysiological techniques and an understanding of the anatomic and physiological basis for present day mapping, image integration, and ablation, thisvolume is an indispensable resource for students, practicing physicians, researchers, and experts in electrophysiology.
