Cardiac Pacing: An Illustrated Introduction will provide an introduction to all those who have or who are developing an interest in cardiac pacing. At a time in the UK when pacing is being devolved from specialist tertiary cardiac centres to smaller district general hospitals and in the USA where pacemaker implantation is no longer the responsibility of the surgeon and in the domain of cardiologists, there is a need for a text which offers a guide to pacing issues to be used alongside a comprehensive practical training programme in an experienced pacing centre

Different artificial tools, such as heart-pacing devices, wearable and implantable monitors, engineered heart valves and stents, and many other cardiac devices, are in use in medical practice. Recent developments in the methods of cardiac pacing along with appropriate selection of equipment are the purpose of this book. Implantable heart rate management devices and wearable cardiac monitors are discussed. Indications for using specific types of cardiac pacemakers, cardiac resynchronization therapy devices, and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are of interest and their contraindications are considered. Special attention is paid to using leadless devices. The subcutaneous ICD obviates the need for transvenous leads and leadless pacemakers are entirely implantable into the right ventricle. Finally, applications of user-friendly wearable devices for the detection of atrial arrhythmia are debated.

There are millions of pacemaker patients in the world and this number is increasing. It is not unusual for these patients to be cared for by clinicians with no formal training in cardiac rhythm management devices. While there are many excellent pacing and defibrillation books, they are nearly all written by physicians for physicians. The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Pacing is written specifically for non-cardiologists in a lively, intelligent and easy to follow style. It emphasizes real-life clinical practice and practical tips, including illustrations from actual clinical settings. Each chapter concludes with a checklist of key points from each subject (“Nuts and Bolts”). Building layer by layer on the fundamental principles and concluding with advanced concepts, The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Pacing is intended for a novice to appreciate overall concepts and for a seasoned veteran to turn to answer a specific question. This book offers practical, reliable and objective information on cardiac devices – it’s easy to pick up, find what you need, and put down.

The final decades of this century have been a period of expansive growth for the electrophysiological management of cardiac arrhythmias. Subsequently, the rapid and widespread clinical application of so many technological advances has made the exchange of ideas in this field an urgent necessity. Cardiac Arrhythmias and Device Therapy: Results and Perspectives for the New Century addresses the issue by gathering current, relevant information in a clear, user-friendly format. This book covers a broad spectrum of subjects, including basic electrophysiology (impulse propagation, subthreshold stimulation, genetics and the molecular base of arrhythmias), invasive and noninvasive clinical electrophysiology, and the clinical aspects of cardiac pacing and defibrillation. It provides a comprehensive review of various methods of treatment of atrial fibrillation, and of the role of pacing in prevention of atrial fibrillation and in treatment of congestive heart failure, dilated, hypertrophic, and restrictive cardiomyopathies. The results of recent clinical trials in cardiac pacing and in the prevention and treatment of malignant venticular arrhythmias are also presented. Special sections have been dedicated to the various aspects of preventing sudden death, including the use of internal and external defibrillation. Finally, the book offers a current review of "hot" topics, with personal experiences and critical evaluations by the world-renowned authors. This book will be of interest to all cardiologists, EP technicians, and health care personnel involved in the diagnosis and management of arrhythmias, who wish to gain a complete perspective on modern pacing and electrophysiology.

The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy By Tom Kenny, RN Vice President, Clinical Education and Training, St. Jude Medical, Austin, TX, USA Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an exciting new option for a growing number of heart failure patients, but CRT systems present special challenges to clinicians, even those accustomed to working with pacemakers. Now, Tom Kenny demystifies the field in this timely, easy-to-understand paperback. The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy concentrates on the practical aspects of how these devices work and how to follow the growing number of patients who are using them to fight heart failure. Designed specifically for the non-specialist, the book explains how the device works, how and why CRT-paced ECGs look different, and how to test for proper function of a CRT system. It also includes a systematic (numbered sequence) guide to follow-up that you can use in the clinic. This practical reference offers: clear, straightforward explanations that require no prior training in device therapy many CRT ECGs to familiarize you with what you will encounter in practice a generous illustration program that includes diagrams, charts, and anatomy pictures to reinforce the text sensible advice on daily issues and troubleshooting systems current references to the latest clinical studies and device technology accessible information, organized for ease of navigation a helpful glossary at the end of the book Both practicing and prospective clinicians will find CRT much less daunting when The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy is close at hand.

Developments in the electrical treatment of arrhythmias have been so fast over the last few years that access to available, state-of-the-art knowledge has become a major challenge. The proceedings of scientific meetings are therefore most helpful in this regard. This volume provides highlights of many of the recent and most important technological advances and concepts in cardiac electrotherapy, written by the most prominent figures in the field, for the internists, clinical cardiologists and cardiologists who are practising in arrhythmias and antiarrhythmic therapy. The book is divided into five parts, each focusing on an exciting group of topics. Part One is a highlight of some of the hit points in arrhythmology. Part Two is a quick reference to the current concepts in non-invasive electrocardiology. Part Three, cardiac pacing, is enhanced by the introductory chapter of S. Furman, which gives the state-of-the-art in electrical cardiac stimulation for 1995. This part also reviews the technical advances, new perspectives in the indications of cardiac pacing, as well as the management of complications. Radiofrequency ablation as a challenging antiarrhythmic therapeutic strategy is thoroughly reviewed and the hottest topics are highlighted in Part Four. Part Five is dedicated to implantable cardioverter-defibrillators with several exciting topics, including driving with implantable devices.

In 1992, clinical cardiac electrophysiology became a recognized sub-speciality of the American Board of Internal Medicine. The formal recognition of this highly specialized and technical field of medicine represents the culmination of thirty years of remarkable scientific and intellectual discovery. Beginning in the 1950s, cardiologists realized that cardiac arrhythmias were the cause of significant morbidity and the sudden death of at least 350,000 patients every year in the United States alone. At that time the only tools available for analyzing abnormal heart rhythms were the standard EKG machine and careful deductive reasoning. During the early 1960s, cardiac pacemakers reflected the first foray in the electrical therapy of cardiac arrhythmias. Pacemakers were first implanted in order to control syncopal episodes related to bradycardic heart rhythms. Although crude and bulky devices, their utility was immediately obvious to physicians and patients alike. The recognition that electrical signals could be recorded from inside the heart and that the heart's rhythm could be controlled by the application of electrical energy began the era of clinical cardiac electrophysiology which was to follow. In the late 1960s and early 1970s and at the peak of the Vietnam conflict. a group of cardiologists with special training in cardiac electrophysiology were sequestered at the US Public Health Service Hospital at Staten Island.
