Cardiac Pacing in Clinical Practice

Ideal for daily practice and desk reference, this book is written for internists as well as specialists in cardiology to inform and improve therapeutic measures being used in cardiac pacement. In addition, indications, pacer selection, implantation, and complications are described. A discussion of the postoperative monitoring of the patient is also included. Over 300 illustrations are combined with instructive text.
