About this Book

While bringing into focus the major advances in cardiac pacing over the last 5-6 years this book places particular emphasis on new techniques for the treatment of congestive heart failure. Other topics include new and unusual indications for pacemakers, the clinical aspects of expanding pacemaker memory and stored electrograms in the diagnosis of arrhythmias, automatic mode switching, the pacemaker/ICD interface, complex pacemaker electrocardiography and advances in pacemaker follow-up. This book will be a valuable resource for those involved in the care of patients with implanted devices.
