Book Description

Edited by world-renowned cardiologist Kenneth Ellenbogen, MD, and collaboratively written by five expert physicians and allied health professionals, Essential Concepts of Electrophysiology and Pacing Through Case Studies guides the reader in developing and refining the key skill of analyzing tracings – one of the most essential proficiencies in electrophysiology.

With 60 cases comprising more than 140 tracings, figures, and tables and accompanied by multiple-choice questions, this scholarly yet eminently practical text delineates the core concepts and brings the reader directly into each case, offering EP physicians and fellows, device representatives and engineers, and other allied health professionals a fundamental understanding of the most important concepts on which the practice of EP is based.

Appropriate for professionals with different levels of proficiency, Essential Concepts of Electrophysiology and Pacing includes a wide array of basic to advanced tracings that range from surface ECGs to pacemaker and ICD recordings to complex intracardiac tracings that will prove vital in strengthening and sharpening practical skills. Relevant references included with each case allow the reader to delve even deeper into the principles presented and will be invaluable in helping to prepare for IBHRE, ABIM, and other EP certification exams.

5 Star Doody Review


Arthur Menezes,  MD  (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
This book presents a case-based, visual approach to understanding fundamental concepts in electrophysiology. It is divided into four parts that address electrophysiology concepts, electrocardiograms, intracardiac tracings, and device tracings.
The book is designed to focus on essential concepts that underlie electrophysiology and pacing. By covering a wide variety of tracings, the authors aim to provide a broad overview of the field through a case-based approach.
The audience includes anyone directly involved with electrophysiology. While this book probably is most useful for general cardiology and electrophysiology fellows, it is also designed for electrophysiology technicians, electrophysiology and pacing nurses, pacemaker and ablation field representatives and engineers. It can be used by anyone who wants a better understanding of electrophysiology tracings and fundamental concepts.
The book examines and explains essential concepts in the field of electrophysiology through clinical scenarios and sample tracings. Each case begins with a short clinical vignette, multiple-choice questions, and either an electrocardiogram, intracardiac tracing, or device tracing. This is followed by the answer and a detailed explanation of the concept. With 60 cases, the authors do a good job of covering a wide variety of topics. The quality of the pictures and diagrams is outstanding.
This well-illustrated, case-based approach to understanding fundamental concepts in electrophysiology will be useful to anyone directly involved in the field.
