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.

ECG Rounds (Paperback)

By (author): Jr., Thomas S. Metkus

NEARLY 200 TRACINGS AND 150 CASES TEACH YOU THE ART AND SCIENCE OF ECG INTERPRETATION

Written to be the go-to resource for residents and students on cardiology rotation, ECG Rounds replicates the experience of having a master clinician rounding with you--skillfully linking ECG abnormalities to a particular case.

The author presents a set of tracings, which when taken together, demonstrate most of the abnormalities that a generalist physician trainee should be familiar with. Each tracing is followed by clinical questions and fully explained answers designed to reinforce important electrocardiographic concepts.

192 TRACINGS DETAIL:

  • Normals, Normal Variants, and Artifacts
  • Narrow Complex Tachycardias
  • Wide Complex Tachycardias
  • Bradycardias and Blocks
  • Chamber Enlargement and Hypertrophy
  • Ischemia
  • Myocardium, Pericardium, and Pulmonary Artery
  • Ingestions, Electrolyte Abnormalities, and Exposures
  • Syndromes, Riddles, and Miscellaneous Arrhythmia

    Rather than encouraging you to memorize endless facts, ECG Rounds focuses on practical interpretation based on reasoning and process. The design allows you to choose tracings by level of difficulty, teaching topic, or sequentially as presented in the book.
