Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias 1st Edition
Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias
Written by one of the foremost pediatric cardiologists in the UK, this essential new book is a clear, practical, highly visual guide to the recognition of arrhythmias and their management. This innovative new reference:
Covers the full range of arrhythmias encountered in pediatric patients
Presents each arrhythmia – from identification to management options – as well as showing how to make a precise non-invasive diagnosis from the ECG
Makes use of real ECG strips – not perfect redrawn examples – to show what readers will actually encounter in the clinical setting
In addition, the book discusses arrhythmias encountered in various clinical settings – early and late after operation, and in congenital heart disease or cardiomyopathy – as well as brief overview of the use of invasive EP studies, catheter ablation, pacemakers and defibrillators.
Whereas other books on this important topic are aimed and tailored for the needs of experts in pediatric cardiology, this book is ideal for pediatricians, pediatric intensivists, trainees in pediatrics, pediatric cardiology and pediatric intensive care, as well as for clinical support staff involved in the cardiac care of children.
“Pediatric cardiologists may also wish to have a copy of Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias at hand because, although there may not be as much detail for them to sink their teeth into, the substance which is retained makes for an excellent distillation of what is commonly seen on pediatric arrhythmia reviews.” (MedicalScienceBooks.com, 2012)
