Cardiac pacing has evolved into a discipline that encompasses elements of electrophysiology, surgery, and biomedical engineering. This book is intended to be "a fundamental and practical guide to provide physicians, technicians, and nurses with a thorough understanding of pacing in all its aspects."
Chapters on basic and clinical electrophysiology do a credible job of summarizing these topics, with discussion of rhythm disturbances and diagnostic procedures in the electrophysiology laboratory. The chapter, "What is a Pacemaker" includes discussions of pacemaker and lead construction, pacemaker function, pacemaker follow-up, and principles of electrical engineering. The presentation of pacemaker sensing is excellent, as are
