Index

""Cardiac Pacing and ICDs is a book to be passionate about. The only comparable passion would be shoes and if this book were to be a pair of shoes then they would definitely be my favourite pair...Overall this book is a superb text on pacing, with additional chapters on ICD therapy. It is essential reading for cardiac practitioners with, or hoping to develop, specialist knowledge in pacemakers."" British Journal of Cardiac Pacing
