Description

Now in its updated sixth edition, this highly popular book provides a practical introduction to the basic principles of cardiac pacing.

The text explains when and how to place temporary and permanent pacemakers, how to set rates and make adjustments, and how to monitor patients to ensure that the pacemaker is functioning properly. The complexities of cardiac electrophysiology are discussed in clinically relevant terms.

This edition includes current AHA/ACC guidelines on indications for pacing. Updated coverage reflects changes in biventricular pacing and telemetry and special concerns for patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillators. A glossary and a conversion chart appendix are included.
