The indications for pacemaker insertion, however, have become more strict. Dr. Chung and his distinguished coauthors present extensive information in 30 chapters on the anatomy and histology of the conduction system, electrophysiologic testing, cardiac pacemaker radiology, indications for pacemakers, techniques of temporary pacing, pacing in acute myocardial infarction and in children, techniques of permanent pacing, modes of pacing, automatic implantable defibrillators, follow-up of the
