Description

The Essential Visual Guide to Basic Cardiac Electrophysiology

Cardiac Electrophysiology: A Visual Guide for Nurses, Techs, and Fellows fulfills the need of electrophysiology students, allied health personnel and new fellows for a practical, hands-on pictorial guide that clearly illustrates the essential concepts of clinical cardiac electrophysiology.

One of the first medical texts to include "live" video examples in QuickTime and animations using Keynote, this attractive landscape-oriented eBook has more than 70 high-quality tracings, diagrams, fluoroscopic images, and electroanatomic maps accompanied by detailed discussions of each image that offer a fundamental understanding of cardiac electrophysiology equipment, principles, and procedures:

•Catheter placement, hardware connections, and intracardiac signals
•Normal electrogram sequences associated with sinus rhythm
•Methodologies used to uncover the mechanisms of common clinical tachycardias

In addition, commentaries provided throughout the book introduce more advanced principles for readers who want to delve further into the EP study.

Authored by a team of experts from the London Health Sciences Centre in London, Ontario, Canada. Cardiac Electrophysiology: A Visual Guide for Nurses, Techs, and Fellows is an invaluable resource for a complex technology, providing superb guidance in acclimating new trainees and personnel to the EP laboratory and empowering them with the knowledge and skills needed to practice clinical electrophysiology.

From the Foreword by George J. Klein, MD, FRCP(C) “This reader-friendly and unique visual guide to performing and understanding the arr hythmia study surpasses the needs of a simple introduction and will be useful to all levels of trainee who want to move to the next level.”
