Description

Here's today's most authoritative and up-to-date information on basic and clinical electrophysiology. The 4th Edition covers everything from fundamental explanations of currents and channels, through the theoretical and experimental bases of cardiac electrical activity and arrhythmias, to current clinical understandings of arrhythmias and their treatment—and features the most comprehensive updating and revision to date.
