Since the publication of the first edition of Cardiac Pacing for
the Clinician, the use of implantable cardiac devices has expanded
rapidly. Certain classes of devices such as implantable loop
recorders and cardiac resynchronization pacing systems were not
commonly used when the first edition was published, and recent
studies have shown that implantable cardioverter defibrillators are
beneficial in large, previously unrecognized patient populations at
risk for sudden death. In order to meet this demand, cardiologists
without special training in electrophysiology or pacing are
implanting an increasing number of cardiac devices. It is in this
rapidly evolving setting that Cardiac Pacing for the Clinician,
Second Edition is being undertaken.
The main focus of this volume will be to provide a practical
discussion of the a oenuts and boltsa of implantable cardiac
devices. The target audience will be cardiologists in practice and
in training as well as nurses, technologists and industry. In
addition, it will benefit physicians preparing for
Additions to the new edition will include: Chapters discussing
new cardiac devices; Implantation of Left Ventricular Leads for
Cardiac Resynchronization Pacing Systems; Identification of
Candidates for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy; Follow-Up Issues
in Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy; Implantable Loop
Updates to the existing chapters will include: New Trial
Information & Follow-Up of the Newest Generation of
Defibrillators; Use of Defibrillators in Patients at Increased Risk
for Sudden Cardiac Death due to Long QT Syndrome, Brugada Syndrome
and Congenital Heart Disease; Updates to Lead Extraction a"
NewTechniques and Tools; Cardiac Pacing chapter will shift focus to
This new edition of Cardiac Pacing for the Clinician, Second
Edition will become a valuable resource to the general cardiologist
and cardiology fellow by providing practical information for
managing patients with complex cardiac devices.
