A Case-Based Approach to Pacemakers, ICDs, and Cardiac Resynchronization: Questions for Examination Review and Clinical Practice – Volume 1


By (author): Paul A. Friedman

Full Online Text Free with Purchase of a Print Book

Many caregivers working in the field of medicine find that one of the best ways to learn is by working through clinical cases, and for many individuals it’s even more helpful to work through the examples as “unknowns.” This is especially true in the arena of implantable cardiac devices.

In an effort to provide this experience, experts from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, have produced two volumes of case studies that encompass variations of normal and abnormal function of pacemakers, ICDs, and CRT devices.

The texts have been written collaboratively by five clinicians with differing backgrounds in an effort to present the cases in such a way that they are applicable to a variety of caregivers. Cases for this book were selected based on clinical relevance and their usefulness for illustrating general principles, practical tips, or interesting findings in device practice, with the goal of advancing general concepts in device management.

The first volume includes introductory and intermediate cases. The second volume includes additional intermediate cases as well as advanced/multipart cases.

A Case-Based Approach to Pacemakers, ICDs, and Cardiac Resynchronization: Volume 3


By (author): Paul A. Friedman, Nathan Tempel, RN, Siva K. Mulpuru, MD, FACC, FHRS, Yong-Mei Cha, Samuel J. Asirvatham, David L. Hayes

This book is for any individual who sees patients with implantable devices, or who will be taking an examination related to device management.

Many caregivers working in the field of medicine find that one of the best ways to learn is by working through clinical cases, and for many people it s even more helpful to work through the examples as unknowns. This is especially true in the arena of implantable cardiac devices.

In an effort to provide this experience, experts from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, have produced three volumes of case studies that encompass variations of normal and abnormal function of pacemakers, ICDs, and CRT devices.

The texts have been written collaboratively by six clinicians with dif¬fering backgrounds in an effort to present the cases in such a way that they are applicable to a variety of caregivers. Cases for this book were selected because of their clinical relevance and their usefulness for illustrating gen¬eral principles, practical tips, or interesting findings in device practice, with the goal of advancing general concepts in device management.

A new accompaniment to this third volume is a multimedia component that includes narrated slides, additional content, and verbal discussion highlighting key clinical pearls.

The Breathless Heart: Apneas in Heart Failure


This book systematically focuses on central sleep apneas, analyzing their relationship especially with heart failure and discussing recent research results and emerging treatment strategies based on feedback modulation. The opening chapters present historical background information on Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR), clarify terminology, and explain the mechanics and chemistry of respiration. Following a description of the physiology of respiration, the pathophysiology underlying central apneas in different disorders and particularly in heart failure is discussed. The similarities and differences of obstructive and central apneas are then considered. The book looks beyond the concept of sleep apnea to daytime CSR and periodic breathing during effort and contrasts the opposing views of CSR as a compensatory phenomenon or as detrimental to the failing heart. The diagnostic tools currently in use for the detection of CSR are thoroughly reviewed, with guidance on interpretation of findings. The book concludes by describing the various forms of treatment that are available for CSR and by explaining how to select patients for treatment.
