Doody Review


Ahmet Oktay,  MD  (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
This book provides comprehensive, evidence-based, and clinically oriented insights into cardiac electrophysiology. The lead editors, Jasbir S. Sra and Masood Akhtar, from Aurora St. Luke's Medical Centers, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, are internationally recognized electrophysiologists with multiple publications on heart rhythm disorders
The book fulfills its purpose of providing a broad knowledge base and practical insight into the current state of the field of cardiac electrophysiology.
It will be useful for electrophysiologists, general cardiologists, cardiology or electrophysiology fellows, and any physicians and researchers who are interested in heart rhythm disorders.
The book begins by exploring the cellular and physiological basis of cardiac electrophysiology and regional anatomy for invasive electrophysiologists. Then it covers every aspect, including but not limited to pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of heart rhythm disorders. Different from classic textbooks, each topic is covered with a sample case study, and the book presents 77 case studies in eight different sections.
Within the past few decades, extensive research has broadened our understanding of the pathophysiological basis of heart disorders. This has led to the implementation of numerous novel diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in the management of heart rhythm disorders. The unique feature of this book is that each topic is discussed based on case studies, an approach that will help readers translate scientific information into clinical practice more readily. Each case discussion is supported by several multiple-choice questions, which not only highlight the most important clinical aspects, but also provide an opportunity to practice for board examinations.
