Fast Facts: Cardiac Arrhythmias, 2nd Edition
by Gerry Kaye, Steve Furniss, Robert Lemery
Fast Facts
Paperback Book
The diagnosis and management of heart rhythm abnormalities is often viewed as a complex and inaccessible area of modern cardiology shrouded in technical detail. Fast Facts: Cardiac Arrhythmias demystifies the subject with a straightforward approach to rhythm abnormality, asking how the patient with arrhythmia presents, how the problem should be investigated and how the arrhythmia can be managed. Highlights include:
• A succinct description of normal conduction
• A simple classification of arrhythmias based on 12-lead ECG patterns
• A concise explanation of the mechanisms of arrhythmias with clear well-annotated illustrations
• A comprehensive review of presenting signs and symptoms, with key questions to ask the patient
• A logical approach to investigation: predict it (history and examination), wait for it (monitoring) or provoke it (electrophysiological testing)
• Practical information on management options: pharmacological therapy, direct cardioversion, catheter ablation and cardiac devices
• Specific chapters on the different types of arrhythmia
Conduction within the heart; Classification and mechanisms of arrhythmias; Presenting signs and symptoms; Investigation; Management principles; Supraventricular arrhythmias; Atrial flutter; Atrial fibrillation; Ventricular arrhythmias; Rare and unusual arrhythmias; Cardiac devices: Pacemakers and defibrillators
