The classic primer for treating arrhythmias safely and effectively—updated with new technologies, approaches, and guidelines
For 25 years, Cardiac Arrhythmias has been the go-to guide for non-specialists seeking a solid foundation in electrophysiology and its relationship to treating arrhythmias. Now, the pioneer and father of modern clinical electrophysiology, Eric Prystowsky, teams up with globally renowned experts to bring this landmark guide fully up to date.
In clear, engaging language, Cardiac Arrhythmias delivers everything you need to know about the practical application of electrophysiological principles. It covers basic electrocardiographic observations and clinical electrophysiologic correlates, including in-depth discussions of cardiac conduction, and provides a close look at specific arrhythmias, with diagnostic information from patient history, physical examination, lab tests, and therapy approaches. Subsequent chapters explore common clinical presentations of arrhythmias, diagnostic techniques, and therapeutic modalities.
Whether you’re an internist, family practitioner, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner, the integrated approach of Cardiac Arrhythmias will help you deliver the highest-quality care to every patient.
