There are millions of pacemaker patients in the world and this number is increasing. It is not unusual for these patients to be cared for by clinicians with no formal training in cardiac rhythm management devices. While there are many excellent pacing and defibrillation books, they are nearly all written by physicians for physicians. The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Pacing is written specifically for non-cardiologists in a lively, intelligent and easy to follow style. It emphasizes real-life clinical practice and practical tips, including illustrations from actual clinical settings. Each chapter concludes with a checklist of key points from each subject (“Nuts and Bolts”). Building layer by layer on the fundamental principles and concluding with advanced concepts, The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Pacing is intended for a novice to appreciate overall concepts and for a seasoned veteran to turn to answer a specific question. This book offers practical, reliable and objective information on cardiac devices – it’s easy to pick up, find what you need, and put down.

The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy By Tom Kenny, RN Vice President, Clinical Education and Training, St. Jude Medical, Austin, TX, USA Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an exciting new option for a growing number of heart failure patients, but CRT systems present special challenges to clinicians, even those accustomed to working with pacemakers. Now, Tom Kenny demystifies the field in this timely, easy-to-understand paperback. The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy concentrates on the practical aspects of how these devices work and how to follow the growing number of patients who are using them to fight heart failure. Designed specifically for the non-specialist, the book explains how the device works, how and why CRT-paced ECGs look different, and how to test for proper function of a CRT system. It also includes a systematic (numbered sequence) guide to follow-up that you can use in the clinic. This practical reference offers: clear, straightforward explanations that require no prior training in device therapy many CRT ECGs to familiarize you with what you will encounter in practice a generous illustration program that includes diagrams, charts, and anatomy pictures to reinforce the text sensible advice on daily issues and troubleshooting systems current references to the latest clinical studies and device technology accessible information, organized for ease of navigation a helpful glossary at the end of the book Both practicing and prospective clinicians will find CRT much less daunting when The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy is close at hand.

Nothing is more perplexing to the clinician new to device therapy than having to deal with cardiac electrocardiograms from a device patient. Pacemakers and other implantable cardiac rhythm management devices leave their “imprint” on ECGs and can significantly change what clinicians see - or expect to see. Evaluating paced ECGs can be challenging, yet nowhere is it taught in any sort of comprehensive manner. Designed specifically for clinicians new to device therapy, The Nuts and Bolts of Interpreting Paced ECGs and EGMs offers practical, reliable and objective information on paced cardiac electrograms. Written in a lively, intelligent and easy to navigate style, emphasizing real-life clinical practice and practical tips, this book includes illustrated paced ECGs by skilled artists to help minimize “fuzzy” lines and emphasize key points. Each chapter concludes with a checklist of key points from each subject (“Nuts and Bolts”).

As our population ages and multiple factors contribute to an increased prevalence of cardiovascular disease, more patients than ever before will be candidates for implantable devices as part of their treatment for heart rhythm abnormalities. Electrophysiologists have a widening array of sophisticated devices from which to choose, and important new data about efficacy, long-term outcomes and possible complications has emerged, impacting how devices are chosen and utilized. Overall, the management of patients with pacemakers and ICDs and other devices remains a complex topic and the need for clear-headed, expert guidance has never been greater. Now in its 3rd edition, Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach is a clinically focused guide to Pacing and ICDs that caregivers can rely on for answers to common but challenging questions on all aspects of device preparation, from selection and programming to proper implantation and long-term patient management. This new edition of Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach: • Provides answers to the most common clinical questions • Presents a logical progression from descriptions of devices and indications to hardware selection and proper implementation • Includes important updates in all covered areas, especially in chapters on CRT and ICD therapies, where significant advances have been made recently • Features over 750 illustrations, most in full color With it’s focus on essential clinical information, and sensible, matter-of-fact approach, Cardiac Pacing, Defibrillation and Resynchronization: A Clinical Approach is the ideal guide for busy providers. Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest knowledge and with a wealth of visual content to illustrate processes and reinforce key concepts, it is also an invaluable resource for those preparing to take the Electrophysiology boards or other certification examinations.

The number of ICD patients is increasing sharply, yet the number of electrophysiologists—physicians who specialize in the electrical system of the heart—is not increasing as dramatically. The result of this influx is that more and more ICD patients are being treated by physicians and staff with little or no ICD training. There are many fine books on device-based therapy for the heart, but most are written for the experts. Whether you read it from cover-to-cover or use it for reference (or both), it is written primarily with you in mind – for people who are actually involved in the clinical care of these patients. The Nuts and Bolts of ICD Therapy is specifically written for non-cardiologists. This book is written in a lively intelligent and easy to navigate style. It emphasizes real-life clinical practice and practical tips, including illustrations from actual clinical settings. Each chapter concludes with a checklist of key points from each subject (“Nuts and Bolts”).
