Description

Written by noted experts with day-to-day experience in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), this comprehensive, practical reference gives physicians a thorough knowledge of the indications, techniques for implantation, complications, programming, and follow-up of CRT devices in patients with heart failure and intra- and interventricular conduction delays. Each chapter has how-to and troubleshooting sections to help readers avoid or navigate the pitfalls encountered in day-to-day clinical practice. Each chapter also has a summary box capturing the key clinical pearls. This book will be a valuable aid in preparing for the Heart Rhythm Exam/International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE) exam.show more
