Electrophysiological Disorders of the Heart book cover

Electrophysiological Disorders of the Heart

This brand-new resource focuses on the common clinical features, diagnosis, and management of the full range of rhythm disorders, highlighting basic science only where necessary. To-the-point and practical, this text discusses everything from cardiac rhythms and arrhythmias...to disease states associated with cardiac arrhythmias...to the latest pharmacologic and interventional therapies.
