This volume reviews current pathophysiologic concepts and describes state-of-the-art techniques for management of cardiac arrhythmias in children and young adults with congenital heart disease. The book provides a thorough understanding of cardiac electrophysiology and detailed technical information on catheter ablation, pacemakers, and implantable defibrillators. Coverage includes a "how-to" chapter on three-dimensional mapping techniques for localizing arrhythmias. A chapter by world-renowned experts examines current treatment options for postoperative atrial tachycardia. The book also includes a review of the anatomy of the

Park's Pediatric Cardiology for Practitioners is the essential medical reference book for the ever-changing field of pediatric cardiology. Comprehensive in its content, it provides the practical guidance you need to diagnose and manage children with congenital and acquired heart disease. From history and physical examination through preventative treatment and the management of special problems, the fully revised 6th edition incorporates all of the latest concepts in cardiology, distilled in a way that is understandable to pediatricians, family practitioners, NPs, and
Pediatric intensivists, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and anesthesiologists from the leading centers around the world present the collaborative perspectives, concepts, and state-of-the-art knowledge required to care for children with congenital and acquired heart disease in the ICU. Their multidisciplinary approach encompasses every aspect of the relevant basic scientific principles, medical and pharmacologic treatments, and surgical techniques and equipment. From the extracardiac Fontan procedure, and the Ross procedure through new pharmacologic agents and the treatment of pulmonary hypertension to mechanical assist devices,
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
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.
This book focuses on how to induce clinical arrhythmias in the electrophysiology (EP) laboratory, a procedure that is indispensable for analyzing the underlying mechanisms, and identifying the most effective treatment of the arrhythmia. In the main part of the book, the authors share their own experiences with 13 different medications that can be injected or infused for arrhythmia induction – ranging from isoprenaline and atropine to ephedrine – all of which can be easily found in any cardiology department. Each chapter begins with

The care of the patient forms the core of this text, which provides perspectives on epidemiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis that every pediatrician, cardiologist, family physician, and pediatric nurse needs to know. Pediatric Practice: Cardiology includes concise yet detailed overviews of
A step-by-step guide to mastering recognition and interpretation of pediatric EKGs for pediatric nurses at all levels, physician assistants, residents, paramedics, medical students, and technicians. This time-tested publication has successfully trained numerous pediatric nurses from a leading children’s hospital. Pediatric advanced practice registered nurses and clinical nurse specialists working in acute or critical care settings, as well as physician assistants and medical residents, need to understand the principles of accurate pediatric EKG interpretation and the appropriate follow-up steps necessary
Reviews of previous editions: "...a well conceived practical guide to the interpretation andtreatment of the main cardiac rhythm disturbances." —Lancet "This book presents a concise and simplified approach to thediagnosis and management of abnormalities in cardiac rhythm.... Oneof the book's strengths is the number and quality ofelectrocardiographic tracings" —New England Journal of Medicine "...this book provides an excellent foundation for all thoseinvolved in the care of arrhythmia patients" —British Journal of Hospital Medicine "…would recommend it unreservedly to anaesthetists whowish
The breadth and range of the topics covered, and the consistent organization of each chapter, give you simple but detailed access to information on anatomy, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, mapping, and ablation. the book includes a unique section on troubleshooting difficult cases for each arrhythmia, and the use of tables, illustrations, and high-quality figures is unmatched among publications in the field.
