About this Book

The advances in technology surrounding pacemakers has led to an inevitable increase in the complexity of ECG interpretation of pacemaker-generated rhythms. Simplified Interpretation of Pacemaker ECGs offers a step-by-step description of pacemaker ECG interpretations. An invaluable resource for cardiologists, residents, house officers, general clinicians, and nurse practitioners, this text includes:


  • a step-by-step description of pacemaker ECG interpretations
  • a brief refresher course on basic ECG interpretation with an overview of the conduction system of the heart
  • a review of the hardware associated with pacing
  • an explanation and discussion of the sensing and pacing function
  • coverage of the most common pacing modalities and unusual pacing situations
  • a series of case studies that bring together all of the information
  • learned and provide the reader with a self-assessment of topics to review
  • ECGs, charts, and illustrations
