Essential Cardiac Electrophysiology: The Self-Assessment Approach, 2nd Edition
April 2013, Wiley-Blackwell
This new edition of Essential Cardiac Electrophysiology: The Self-Assessment Approach continues the successful formula of the first edition, providing a concise and thorough overview of Electrophysiology supplemented by challenging questions readers can use to test their knowledge and prepare for examinations.
Comprehensively updated and significantly expanded to include the latest recommendations, findings from leading-edge research, emergent diagnostic tools, and new therapeutic options, Essential Cardiac Electrophysiology: The Self-Assessment Approach now offers coverage of some of hottest topics in EP, including:
HCN channels; Congenital, and paroxysmal AV blocks; Left atrial flutter; Electrophysiologic assessment of AVNRT and AVRT; VT ablation; Short QT syndrome; Early repolarization and ventricular fibrillation; Aortic cusp VT; Commotio Cordis, and more.
Fact-based and clinically-focused, Essential Cardiac Electrophysiology: The Self-Assessment Approach is an ideal reference for all members of the EP care team, from cardiac care nurses and technicians to EP and cardiology fellows to practicing electrophysiologists. Packed with questions designed to aid readers’ understanding of key concepts and retention of essential facts, it is an excellent study aid for those preparing for board examination or other EP certifications.
