The breadth and range of the topics covered, and the consistent organization of each chapter, give you simple but detailed access to information on anatomy, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, mapping, and ablation. The book includes a unique section on troubleshooting difficult cases for each arrhythmia, and the use of tables, illustrations, and high-quality figures is unmatched among publications in the field.
- Includes comprehensive and detailed coverage of all arrhytmias and ablation technologies.
- Uses consistent chapter format to make accessing information easy.
- Outlines a systematic approach to specific problems encountered in the laboratory along with solutions.
- Utilizes extensive tables to summarize key information in each chapter.
- Presents specific "hard to remember" numerical information used in diagnosis and mapping.
