Although the electrocardiogram (ECG) is accepted as a standard clinical tool, electrograms (EGMs) recorded during electrophysiology studies are considered complex and confusing. In this brief paperback, an award-winning teacher provides the newcomer with an introductory guide to electrophysiology studies and the interpretation of electrograms. Dr. Kusumoto divides the 15 chapters into two main sections, Electrophysiology Concepts and Specific Arrhythmias. First, he reviews the basics of electrophysiology testing and the diagnostic evaluation of general types of arrhythmias. From that foundation, he proceeds to discuss specific arrhythmia types and techniques for evaluation and ablation: • Accessory pathways • AV node reentry • Focal atrial tachycardia • Atrial flutter • Atrial fibrillation • Ventricular tachycardia The final chapter considers implantable cardiac devices as they relate to ECGs and electrograms. Each short chapter includes a bullet-point summary and helpful review questions. Plentiful ECG and EGM tracings illustrate the text. Cardiology and electrophysiology fellows, allied professionals working in the electrophysiology laboratory, and all professionals interested in beginning a study of heart rhythms and electrophysiology will want to keep Understanding Intracardiac EGMs and ECGs close at hand for frequent reference.

From master teacher George J. Klein, MD, this stepwise book is for those with a working knowledge of electrophysiology who have looked at a complicated ECG or intracardiac tracing and drawn a blank, not recognizing a pattern from their personal experience, and without a good idea of how to proceed or venturing a guess with variable confidence. Dr. Klein presents strategies that he has found useful, not just by providing an “answer,” but also exploring how he solved the problem with a systematic approach using “tools” of analysis that applies to both ECGs and EGM tracings.

This is a book for any care provider - from advanced students and nurses to residents and even specialists - who needs to master the interpretation of ECGs, especially while "on the spot" at the point of care. This easy-to-use, visual guide takes a novel approach, foregrounding the visual clues or "keys" that readers can learn to recognize in ECGs and thus make rapid decisions about next steps at the point of care. The comparatively minimal text focuses on "must-know" information about the underlying cause of ECG abnormalities. This title is also available as a mobile App from MedHand Mobile Libraries.

The book presents recent advances in signal processing techniques for modeling, analysis, and understanding of the heart's electrical activity during atrial fibrillation. This arrhythmia is the most commonly encountered in clinical practice and its complex and metamorphic nature represents a challenging problem for clinicians, engineers, and scientists. Research on atrial fibrillation has stimulated the development of a wide range of signal processing tools to better understand the mechanisms ruling its initiation, maintenance, and termination. This book provides undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers and practicing engineers, with an overview of techniques, including time domain techniques for atrial wave extraction, time-frequency analysis for exploring wave dynamics, and nonlinear techniques to characterize the ventricular response and the organization of atrial activity. The book includes an introductory chapter about atrial fibrillation and its mechanisms, treatment, and management. The successive chapters are dedicated to the analysis of atrial signals recorded on the body surface and to the quantification of ventricular response. The rest of the book explores techniques to characterize endo- and epicardial recordings and to model atrial conduction. Under the appearance of being a monothematic book on atrial fibrillation, the reader will not only recognize common problems of biomedical signal processing but also discover that analysis of atrial fibrillation is a unique challenge for developing and testing novel signal processing tools.
