The Essential Visual Guide to Basic Cardiac Electrophysiology Cardiac Electrophysiology: A Visual Guide for Nurses, Techs, and Fellows fulfills the need of allied health personnel and new fellows for a practical, hands-on pictorial guide that clearly illustrates the essential concepts of clinical cardiac electrophysiology. More than 70 high-quality tracings, diagrams, fluoroscopic images, and electroanatomic maps accompanied by detailed discussions of each image offer a fundamental understanding of cardiac electrophysiology equipment, principles, and procedures: • Catheter placement, hardware connections, and intracardiac signals • Normal electrogram sequences associated with sinus rhythm • Methodologies used to uncover the mechanisms of common clinical tachycardias In addition, commentaries provided throughout the book introduce more advanced principles for readers who want to delve further into the EP study. Authored by a team of experts, Cardiac Electrophysiology: A Visual Guide for Nurses, Techs, and Fellows is an invaluable resource for a complex technology, providing superb guidance in acclimating new trainees and personnel to the EP laboratory and empowering them with the knowledge and skills needed to practice clinical electrophysiology.

George J. Klein MD
From senior electrophysiologist and world-class educator George
Klein, a fully illustrated guide with over 100 intracardiac tracings and
figures that allow the physician to approach electrophysiologic
problems effectively and systematically.The book is especially
focused on electrophysiological maneuvers and provides a clear and
understandable guide to their proper selection and interpretation using
abundant clinical examples.Defines the integral role for "traditional" electrogram (EGM) analysis in order to understand the mechanism of a tachycardia.

It
goes without saying that a correct arrhythmia diagnosis is a
prerequisite to catheter ablation regardless of the presence of
sophisticated mapping and imaging technologies. Electrophysiological
maneuvers are fundamental to this process, and proper selection and
interpretation of maneuvers constitute a core skill of the
electrophysiologist. In this volume, we make the case that most
maneuvers are fundamentally similar in principle and can be understood
by appreciating a few basic physiological and anatomical principles. The
art lies not in a comprehensive knowledge by rote of every maneuver or
its application, but rather a systematic approach using common
principles. We illustrate this by showing abundant examples and
emphasizing the "game plan," including checklists that can be applied to
virtually any maneuver.

—George J. Klein

In my
opinion, this book should be on the shelf of every electrophysiologist
trainee as well as every clinical cardiac electrophysiologist. It is a
classic, like its editor. Dr. Klein deserves high praise for organizing
his and his colleagues’ clinical experiences and thought processes into a
concise, practical text that should be part of all training programs in
electrophysiology.

Barbara J Aehlert
Now it’s easier than ever to understand and interpret basic dysrhythmias! Barbara J. Aehlert’s ECGs Made Easy, 5th Edition uses a clear, conversational approach and plenty of practice exercises to help you learn ECG recognition. Add the practice rhythm strips in the book with those on the Evolve companion website, and you have more than 500 practice strips for ECG interpretation. Each ECG rhythm includes a sample rhythm strip and a discussion of possible patient symptoms and general treatment guidelines. Also included are ECG Pearls with insights based on real-world experience, Drug Pearls highlighting medications used to treat dysrhythmias, and a handy plastic heart rate calculator ruler for fast interpretation of rhythms.Clear ECG discussions highlight what you need to know about ECG mechanisms, rhythms, and heart blocks, such as: How Do I Recognize It? What Causes It? What Do I Do About It?ECG Pearl boxes offer useful hints for interpreting ECGs, such as the importance of the escape pacemaker.Drug Pearl boxes highlight various medications used to treat dysrhythmias.Introduction to the 12-Lead ECG chapter provides all the basics for this advanced skill, including determining electrical axis, ECG changes associated with myocardial ischemia and infarction, bundle branch block, and other conditions.A comprehensive post-test at the end of the book measures your understanding.A heart rate calculator ruler is included with each textbook, so you can measure heart rates while practicing ECG recognition. Chapter objectives and key terms focus your attention on the most important information. Updated content includes 25 new photos and drawings, for a total of almost 500 illustrations — all in full color.NEW! 10 practice rhythm strips and 65 replacement rhythms are added to the Stop and Review chapter quizzes for a total of 215 practice strips in the book. NEW Animation boxes indicate when you can view animations of key material on the Evolve companion website. NEW! 20 replacement rhythm strips are added to the Evolve site for a total of 100 practice strips online — together with the book, there are now 315 workable practice strips available.
