About this item

Edited by a team of leading clinician-educators this is a practical, go-to reference for trainees and clinical staff who are new to, or less experienced with, the programming and management of implantable devices. It distills device best-practices into a single, quick-reference volume that focuses on essential tasks, common pitfalls, and likely complications. Each chapter follows a hands-on, how-to approach that helps readers quickly master even the most challenging device-related tasks-such as programming and how to respond confidently when complications arise.

Today's pacemakers and other implantable EP devices are to earlier versions what smart phones are to rotary phones. They are not only smaller and more comfortable; they offer complex programming options that allow clinicians to adapt a device to individual patient requirements. As they continue to become smaller, smarter, and more adaptable, these devices also become more challenging for clinicians to set up, manage and monitor. This unique, quick-reference guide dramatically reduces the learning curve for mastering this essential technology by giving doctors and technicians the how-to information they need.

Focuses on tasks clinicians perform, including pre-implementation, planning, programming, management, troubleshooting, and more

Shows how expert clinicians achieve optimal outcomes in their own labs with real-world examples

Features more than numerous images, including ECGs, X-ray and fluoroscopy, images from device interrogation, intracardiac electrograms, and color electoanatomical maps

Provides videos on an accompanying website demonstrating all key tasks and techniques
