Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias in Children and Patients with Congenital Heart Disease Book Review:

This authoritative book explores electrophysiologic testing and therapeutic catheter ablation for cardiac arrhythmias in children, and in patients of all ages with congenital heart disease. It reviews the anatomic and physiologic background to these procedures, emphasizing the tools for mapping and tissue ablation that continue to improve patient outcomes. Additionally, individual chapters are dedicated to specific congenital heart defects (for instance, tetralogy of Fallot, Ebstein’s anomaly, univentricular heart) guiding the reader to anticipate the type of arrhythmia, the most likely location for effective ablation, and the technical challenges that may be encountered in each condition. Key Features Provides a detailed review of the unique challenges presented by young patients with small heart size, and patients of any age with distorted anatomy due to congenital heart disease, in this long overdue, updated text Intends to guide all cardiologists engaged in invasive electrophysiology at both the training level and established practice who are exposed to such exceptional cases Includes an internationally recognized group of experts who discuss the technical approaches, success rates, complication rates, and special precautions needed to achieve optimal outcomes

Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias Book Review:

Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias Written by one of the foremost pediatric cardiologists in the UK, this essential new book is a clear, practical, highly visual guide to the recognition of arrhythmias and their management. This innovative new reference: Covers the full range of arrhythmias encountered in pediatric patients Presents each arrhythmia – from identification to management options – as well as showing how to make a precise non-invasive diagnosis from the ECG Makes use of real ECG strips – not perfect redrawn examples – to show what readers will actually encounter in the clinical setting In addition, the book discusses arrhythmias encountered in various clinical settings – early and late after operation, and in congenital heart disease or cardiomyopathy – as well as brief overview of the use of invasive EP studies, catheter ablation, pacemakers and defibrillators. Whereas other books on this important topic are aimed and tailored for the needs of experts in pediatric cardiology, this book is ideal for pediatricians, pediatric intensivists, trainees in pediatrics, pediatric cardiology and pediatric intensive care, as well as for clinical support staff involved in the cardiac care of children.

Paediatric Cardiac Arrhythmias Book Review:

Paediatric cardiologists and paediatricians are now much more aware of, and interested in, understanding paediatric cardiac arrhythmias, due largely to the rapid progress in this field over the last few years - in terms of both investigation (invasive and non-invasive) and the types oftreatment available. New drugs, non-pharmacological techniques, and surgery have assumed a greater role, and the introduction of fetal echocardiography has enabled the benefits of the new diagnostic and treatment techniques to be extended to the unborn child.

Pediatric ECG Interpretation Book Review:

Pattern recognition is an important learning tool in the interpretation of ECGs. Unfortunately, until faced with a patient with an arrhythmia or structural heart disease, pediatric practitioners generally receive limited exposure to ECGs. The ability to clearly distinguish an abnormal ECG pattern from a normal variant in an emergency situation is an essential skill, but one that many pediatricians feel ill-prepared to utilize confidently. In Pediatric ECG Interpretation: An Illustrative Guide, Drs. Deal, Johnsrude and Buck aim to address this issue by illustrating many of the ECG patterns a pediatric practitioner is likely to encounter. ECG illustrations with interpretations are presented in several categories: normal children of all ages, acquired abnormalities such as hypertrophy or electrolyte disorders, and common congenital heart disease lesions. Later sections cover bradycardia, supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, and a basic section on pacemaker ECGs. Simple techniques used to interpret mechanisms of arrhythmias are described as a resource for practitioners in cardiology, adult electrophysiology, or pediatrics who may not have a readily accessible resource for these ECG examples. Material hosted at http://wiley.mpstechnologies.com/wiley/BOBContent/searchLPBobContent.do can be used: 1 as a self-evaluation tool for interpretation of ECGs 2 as a teaching reference for Cardiology fellows, residents, and house staff 3 as an invaluable resource for the Emergency Room physician or pediatrician who might obtain an ECG on a pediatric patient

Heart Rate and Rhythm Book Review:

Pathological heart rhythms are a major health issue. In this book experts from various fields provide an important context for understanding the complicated molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie normal and pathophysiological cardiac rhythms. Individual chapters cover a full range of topics, including the ionic basis of pacemaking, the role of specific channels and transporters in sinoatrial node pacemaking, altered intracellular Ca2+ handling in response to disease, computer modeling of the action potentials of pacemaker and working cardiomyocytes, genetic and molecular basis of inherited arrhythmias and a review of established and novel antiarrhythmic agents. Due to the key importance of the specialized pacemaker cells and tissue (sinoatrial and atrioventricular nodes) in maintaining heart rate and rhythm, special emphasis is placed on the peculiar electrophysiology of these cells.

Management of Cardiac Arrhythmias Book Review:

A significantly expanded third edition, this book provides a comprehensive and concise overview of cardiac arrhythmias and their ECG/telemetry manifestations, including the principles of cardiac electrophysiology, current concepts of pharmacology, clinical features, diagnoses, and state-of-the-art treatments. Additionally, the book emphasizes decision-making strategies in approaching each individual patient and the application of technical innovations in specific clinical situations. Organized into eight parts, beginning chapters introduce the concepts and principles of cardiac electrophysiology, unique rhythms, and ECG waves/signs. These chapters are designed to integrate emerging knowledge in basic science and clinical medicine. Subsequent chapters focus on the diagnosis of a variety of cardiac arrhythmias using non-invasive methodology. Throughout the book, chapters continue to analyze pharmacological and other approaches to therapy of specific arrhythmias, including supraventricular tachycardias, atrial fibrillation and flutter, ventricular arrhythmias, and bradyarrhythmias. Finally, the book closes with coverage on inherited cardiac arrhythmia syndromes including the long, short QT, and J-wave syndromes, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. The third edition of Management of Cardiac Arrhythmias, is an essential resource for physicians, residents, fellows, and medical students in cardiology, cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, cardiac electrophysiology, and cardiac radiology.
