The number of ICD patients is increasing sharply, yet the number of
electrophysiologists--physicians who specialize in the electrical
system of the heart--is not increasing as dramatically. The result
of this influx is that more and more ICD patients are being treated
by physicians and staff with little or no ICD training.
There are many fine books on device-based therapy for the heart,
but most are written for the experts. Whether you read it from
cover-to-cover or use it for reference (or both), it is written
primarily with you in mind - for people who are actually involved
in the clinical care of these patients.
