Keeping up with the use of new technologies in cardiology is becoming increasingly challenging. Case Studies in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology helps to bridge the gap between knowledge and application with 28 cases spanning both common and uncommon arrhythmias and ablation scenarios, each of which includes the clinical presentation, baseline ECG, ECG during arrhythmia, stepwise electrophysiologic diagnostic maneuvers and some of their pitfalls, and optimal therapy. Includes 28 cases spanning the spectrum of what an electrophysiologist is likely to see in practice. Shows the correct way of conducting procedures, as well as "detours" that an unwary practitioner may take: misdiagnoses and why they are wrong; incorrect therapeutic choices and why these may be not only unsuccessful but even harmful. Encourages you to read and interpret the ECGs, mapping diagrams, and other diagnostic information before revealing the expert opinion or actual results of each case. Summarizes the key learning points in each case. Discusses potential procedural complications, including anticipation, avoidance, recognition, and response and resolution. Covers complex ablations (atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia) as well as prior failed ablations.
This book focuses on the practical aspects of clinical electrophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias in the young. It represents a compilation of the clinical course, electrophysiologic studies, pharmacological management, and transcatheter ablation therapy in patients from infancy through young adulthood. Topics include the mechanism, ECG characteristics, electrophysiologic findings, treatment, and prognosis of tachyarrhythmias and bradyarrhythmias; specialized subjects including syncope, cardiac pacemakers, and implantable cardiac defibrillators; pharmacology of antiarrhythmic agents; and the roles of allied healthcare professionals in the management of arrhythmias in the young. This revised edition includes new or expanded chapters on the molecular biology mechanisms that underlie the structure and function of the cardiac conduction system; new navigation technologies for detecting cardiac arrhythmias while minimizing radiation exposure; genetic disorders of the cardiac impulse; and sudden cardiac death in the young, particularly athletes. Featuring contributions from practicing clinical cardiac electrophysiologists affiliated with the Michigan Congenital Heart Center at the University of Michigan, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology in the Young, Second Edition, is a premier reference for cardiologists, residents, and medical students.

Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) is a highly specialized, complex and growing field of cardiology. As understanding of the evaluation of treatment of arrhythmias continues to advance, learning and understanding the principles of EP in order to provide the best possible treatments for patients can be a daunting task. The Manual of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology is a guide to the clinical diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias that meets this need. With a scientific, practical, and multi-disciplinary approach, the book establishes the foundation of the cardiac electrophysiology and provides multimedia illustrations to facilitate and enhance understanding. These illustrations will come directly from real case studies, to provide an authentic look at each principle of EP. Since the world of EP moves so fast, and arrhythmias are diagnosed and treated in real time, it is often difficult to learn EP from static texts, images and diagrams. This book is designed to be accessible enough to serve as an introduction to EP, but advanced enough to serve as a guide for experienced practitioners. EP students of all levels, including medical students, residents, fellows, mid-level providers, nurses, technologist, primary care providers, cardiologists and electrophysiologists will find value in the Manual of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.
In the fast paced world of clinical training, students are often inundated with the what of electrophysiology without the why. This new text is designed to tell the story of electrophysiology so that the seemingly disparate myriad observations of clinical practice come into focus as a cohesive and predictable whole. Presents a unique, conceptually-guided approach to understanding the movement of electrical current through the heart, the impact of various disease states and the positive effect of treatment Reviews electrophysiologic principles and the analytic tools which, when combined with a firm grasp of EP mechanisms, allow the reader to think through any situation Presents the mathematics necessary for the practice of cardiac electrophysiology in an accessible and understandable manner Contains accompanying video clips, including computer simulations showing the flow of electrical current through the heart, which help explain and visualise concepts discussed in the text Includes helpful chapter summaries and full color illustrations aid comprehension

The world of clinical cardiac electrophysiology continues to evolve with newer and more advanced technologies to better serve our patients. In this book, titled The Role of the Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiologist in the Management of Congestive Heart Failure, authors from around the world have contributed their thoughts. Various chapters describing the use of biventricular pacing devices (CRT) in the management of patients suffering from systolic heart failure are included, with a chapter dedicated to management of CRT. A chapter describing the role of CRT in patients with Chagas disease is included. Authors describe the newer pharmaceuticals in the management of this disease and the role of catheter ablation in the management of atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias. These topics are of great interest to clinicians at the various levels of training, and I believe this textbook gives a flavor of the expanding role of the electrophysiologist in the management of an ever-expanding patient population.
Clinical cardiac electrophysiology is one of the most rapidly expanding fields in cardiology. There are currently no comprehensive case based books in this field. A Case Review of Cardiac Electrophysiology is a case based review of cardiac electrophysiology. The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive case based review of cardiac electrophysiology. It will include implantable device cases as well as ablation cases and difficult clinical cases and may be used as a useful review in cardiac electrophysiology for those taking board examinations. There will also be cases that will be useful for associate professionals working in the field of cardiac electrophysiology including those individuals working for industry.
This book provides a detailed summary of all aspects of cardiac electrophysiology, presented in an easy to use handbook. For each arrhythmia the aetiology, classification, clinical presentation, mechanism, and electrophysiology is set up (including precise set up and ablation parameters) and trouble-shooting are presented and demonstrated using interesting images, fluoroscopy images, ECG’s and electrograms. The overall aim of this book is to provide a logical and practical approach to cardiac arrhythmia management. It acts as a useful resource and, importantly, helps to promote this sub-specialty. This book is aimed at cardiac electrophysiologist’s, fellows, cardiologists, physicians, family practitioners, cardiology trainees, students, allied professionals and nurses. Given its succinct summary of electrophysiology is a useful reference guide for the electrophysiology laboratory. It is aimed at an international audience and provides an important guide for those studying for all heart rhythm exams.
