Cardiac pacing has evolved over the past 25 years from a relatively simple procedure to one of high electronic sophistication. Our understanding of the physiology of cardiac pacing has grown along with the technology. Barold has assembled a comprehensive text that explores this technology and directions of future development. The 44 chapters are grouped in ten sections covering basic concepts (stimulation, sensing, and the ventricular electrogram); implantation techniques and complications; electrocardiography; pacing for tachyarrhythmias; myopotential and external interference; and pacemaker follow-up. Also included are chapters on specialized techniques such as electrophysiologic testing using implanted pacemakers, cardiac pacing in children, and
