Description

Sex and Cardiac Electrophysiology: Differences in Cardiac Electrical Disorders Between Men and Women is a comprehensive investigation into all aspects of sex differences in cardiac electrophysiology. As there are substantial differences between female and male patients in physiology, pathology triggering factors, disease progression, clinical approaches and treatment outcome, this book provides a comprehensive examination. In cardiology, the differences between women and men are more recognized, hence this title summarizes these important differences, providing the essential information needed for clinical specialists and researchers involved in the design and implementation of clinical studies.

Key Features

  • Explores topics ranging from the physiologic differences between women and men to the differences in clinical handling of arrhythmic disorders between female and male patients
  • Provides sex differences in cardiac electrophysiology in separate chapters
  • Covers the sex differences of cardiac electrical disorders, providing insights beyond cardiac metabolic syndrome, hypertension, atherogenesis and heart failure

Readership

Research specialists (in both academia and medical industry) involved in setting up clinical studies and trials in cardiac electrophysiology; physicians specialising in cardiac electrophysiology; general cardiologists and other medical specialists and general practitioners who treat patients with cardiac problems
