Description

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.

Key Features

  • Outlines the common clinical features of rhythm disorders and how to treat and manage them.
  • Features a mini-textbook of mechanisms, identification, analysis, and prognosis for most common arrhythmia types in the section on rhythms and arrhythmias.
  • Provides management strategies for complex patient problems.
  • Discusses hot topics such as genetics and cardiac arrhythmias, Brugada syndrome, and devices for the management of atrial fibrillation.
