As our population ages and multiple factors contribute to an increased prevalence of cardiovascular disease, more patients than ever before will be candidates for implantable devices as part of their treatment for heart rhythm abnormalities. Electrophysiologists have a widening array of sophisticated devices from which to choose, and important new data about efficacy, long-term outcomes and possible complications has emerged, impacting how devices are chosen and utilized. Overall, the management of patients with pacemakers and ICDs and other devices remains a complex topic and the need for clear-headed, expert guidance has never been greater. 

Now in its 3rd edition, Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach is a clinically focused guide to Pacing and ICDs that caregivers can rely on for answers to common but challenging questions on all aspects of device preparation, from selection and programming to proper implantation and long-term patient management.

This new edition of Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach:

• Provides answers to the most common clinical questions
• Presents a logical progression from descriptions of devices and indications to hardware selection and proper implementation
• Includes important updates in all covered areas, especially in chapters on CRT and ICD therapies, where significant advances have been made recently
• Features over 750 illustrations, most in full color

With it’s focus on essential clinical information, and sensible, matter-of-fact approach, Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach is the ideal guide for busy providers. Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest knowledge and with a wealth of visual content to illustrate processes and reinforce key concepts, it is also an invaluable resource for those preparing to take the Electrophysiology boards or other certification examinations.

Clinical Cardiology: Current Practice Guidelines (Paperback)

By (author): Demosthenes Katritsis, Bernard J. Gersh

Clinical Cardiology: Current Practice Guidelines is an essential tool for the busy clinician, providing succinct yet detailed access to the most recent trial and guideline data supporting practice and patient management in cardiology. ESC and ACC/AHA guidelines are continually being updated and often overlap in their advice, making it difficult for the cardiologist to obtain a clear picture of the right way to diagnose and treat disease according to the latest evidence base. Written by leading authorities in the field, this book, together with its twice yearly-updated online version, provides a solution. The authors have scrutinized all available guidelines and research, collating the results into over 600 easily-accessible tables which provide the most recent recommendation by both ACC/AHA and the ESC on every clinical issue. These recommendations are considered in the context of the latest research and evolving evidence most relevant to the clinician, to give detailed insights into how best to proceed with treatment. This is discussed as part of 84 comprehensive chapters on pathophysiology, diagnosis and management. Each chapter offers concise information on definition, epidemiology, and pathophysiology of the disease, reflecting the latest published research. Following this is clear and instructive discussion of possible presentations and all clinical investigations that may be necessary. The authors have rigorously examined the implications of published guidance, and where appropriate considered new evidence that questions the validity of specific recommendations, as well as the opinion of established experts and other data such as FDA alerts. This guidance is supported by over 140 full-colour images, which reinforce key points and clarify difficult concepts. The online version is updated twice a year to ensure a continuously up-to-date reference source over time, which will establish itself as an essential part of everyday practice. Accompanied by a year's free access to the online version and providing at-a-glance access to the best guidance in cardiology, Clinical Cardiology: Current Practice Guidelines offers a diagnosis and management toolkit which no cardiologist can afford to be without.

The Mechanics of the Circulation (Paperback)

By (author): C. G. Caro, T. J. Pedley, R. C. Schroter, W. A. Seed

Continuing demand for this book confirms that it remains relevant over 30 years after its first publication. The fundamental explanations are largely unchanged, but in the new introduction to this second edition the authors are on hand to guide the reader through major advances of the last three decades. With an emphasis on physical explanation rather than equations, Part I clearly presents the background mechanics. The second part applies mechanical reasoning to the component parts of the circulation: blood, the heart, the systemic arteries, microcirculation, veins and the pulmonary circulation. Each section demonstrates how an understanding of basic mechanics enhances our understanding of the function of the circulation as a whole. This classic book is of value to students, researchers and practitioners in bioengineering, physiology and human and veterinary medicine, particularly those working in the cardiovascular field, and to engineers and physical scientists with multidisciplinary interests.
