The first practical, user-friendly guide to the theory and practice of a routinely used technique, this new manual provides the specialist in training with a thorough grounding in the equipment, procedures, and clinical findings with which clinicians need to be familiar.
Conceived as an alternative to the large and expensive texts aimed at specialists, the handbook is divided into two sections, which present:
Providing practical guidance on clinical applications, and illustrated with numerous graphics, checklists and flowcharts to enable readers to locate information quickly and easily, Handbook of Cardiac Electrophysiology is an accessible resource covering a widespread, but complex technology.
