About this Book

New Arrhythmia Technologies provides a complete discussion of recent, emerging, and future arrhythmia technologies.

This forward-thinking book details successful trials and investigates areas of research that have not yet reached the trial phase.

The elite panel of authors have explored fresh information on:

  • advances in antiarrhythmic pharmacologis therapy
  • advances in monitoring, risk assessment, and noninvasive mapping
  • advances in pacing therapy
  • advances in implantable defibrillators
  • advances in catheter and surgical ablation
  • advances in antiarrhythmic biological therapy
  • vision for the future of arrhythmia technologies
  • web-based defibrillation monitoring.

New Arrhythmia Technologies presents a unique view of the latest in arrhythmia innovations through the eyes of the experts in the field.
