The book provides a thorough understanding of cardiac electrophysiology and detailed technical information on catheter ablation, pacemakers, and implantable defibrillators. Coverage includes a "how-to" chapter on three-dimensional mapping techniques for localizing arrhythmias. A chapter by world-renowned experts examines current treatment options for postoperative atrial tachycardia. The book also includes a review of the anatomy of the cardiac conduction system and a discussion of new findings in molecular genetics that relate to hereditary arrhythmias.
Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias Written by one of the foremost pediatric cardiologists in the UK, this essential new book is a clear, practical, highly visual guide to the recognition of arrhythmias and their management. This innovative new reference: Covers the full range of arrhythmias encountered in pediatric patients Presents each arrhythmia – from identification to management options – as well as showing how to make a precise non-invasive diagnosis from the ECG Makes use of real ECG strips – not perfect redrawn examples – to show what readers will actually encounter in the clinical setting In addition, the book discusses arrhythmias encountered in various clinical settings – early and late after operation, and in congenital heart disease or cardiomyopathy – as well as brief overview of the use of invasive EP studies, catheter ablation, pacemakers and defibrillators. Whereas other books on this important topic are aimed and tailored for the needs of experts in pediatric cardiology, this book is ideal for pediatricians, pediatric intensivists, trainees in pediatrics, pediatric cardiology and pediatric intensive care, as well as for clinical support staff involved in the cardiac care of children.
This new reference addresses all aspects of arrhythmias in children from the foetus through to the young adult. Topics addressed include common clinical problems, catheter ablation, pacemaker implantation, supraventricular tachycardia, ECG interpretation and intracardiac electrophysiology.

Paediatric cardiologists and paediatricians are now much more aware of, and interested in, understanding paediatric cardiac arrhythmias, due largely to the rapid progress in this field over the last few years - in terms of both investigation (invasive and non-invasive) and the types oftreatment available. New drugs, non-pharmacological techniques, and surgery have assumed a greater role, and the introduction of fetal echocardiography has enabled the benefits of the new diagnostic and treatment techniques to be extended to the unborn child.

Few areas of medicine have evolved as rapidly as cardiac electrophysiology. What were only a short time ago seen to be lethal rhythm disturbances can now be treated with confidence in a diverse spectrum of patients. The first edition of Management of Cardiac Arrhythmias, published over ten years ago, has served clinicians not only as a practical guide to cardiac arrhythmias, but also as a comprehensive reference source. The second edition builds upon the concise style and expert authorship of its predecessor to provide the most up-to-date information on the diagnosis and treatment of this group of diseases. The introductory chapters begin with historical perspectives of the field and move on to discuss the scientific basis of arrhythmogenesis and diagnostic testing. The book then devotes specific chapters to various arrhythmias, including technical innovations in treatment and insights from clinical trials of and current guidelines for permanent pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators. Subsequent chapters focus on arrhythmias in specific populations, including athletes, children, and women during pregnancy. Syndromes such as syncope, long and short QT syndrome, and J wave syndromes are also covered. Presenting complex information in a clearly structured and efficient format, this book is an incomparable asset to cardiologists and other physicians and health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with cardiac arrhythmias.

This book focuses on how to induce clinical arrhythmias in the electrophysiology (EP) laboratory, a procedure that is indispensable for analyzing the underlying mechanisms, and identifying the most effective treatment of the arrhythmia. In the main part of the book, the authors share their own experiences with 13 different medications that can be injected or infused for arrhythmia induction – ranging from isoprenaline and atropine to ephedrine – all of which can be easily found in any cardiology department. Each chapter begins with a description of the drug’s chemical structure and mechanism of actions, then illustrates the infusion preparation, dosage and side effects and lastly analyzes its electrophysiological properties and highlights the most important clinical studies on it. For each drug the authors list – in dedicated tables – administration protocols from their own hospital. This book is of interest to postgraduate students, cardiology residents, cardiologists and pediatric cardiologists with special interest in arrhythmias, as well as to trainees, technicians and nurses involved in the EP lab.

Pattern recognition is an important learning tool in the interpretation of ECGs. Unfortunately, until faced with a patient with an arrhythmia or structural heart disease, pediatric practitioners generally receive limited exposure to ECGs. The ability to clearly distinguish an abnormal ECG pattern from a normal variant in an emergency situation is an essential skill, but one that many pediatricians feel ill-prepared to utilize confidently. In Pediatric ECG Interpretation: An Illustrative Guide, Drs. Deal, Johnsrude and Buck aim to address this issue by illustrating many of the ECG patterns a pediatric practitioner is likely to encounter. ECG illustrations with interpretations are presented in several categories: normal children of all ages, acquired abnormalities such as hypertrophy or electrolyte disorders, and common congenital heart disease lesions. Later sections cover bradycardia, supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, and a basic section on pacemaker ECGs. Simple techniques used to interpret mechanisms of arrhythmias are described as a resource for practitioners in cardiology, adult electrophysiology, or pediatrics who may not have a readily accessible resource for these ECG examples.
