Discusses diagnosis and treatment of all abnormalities in cardiac rhythm, following a practical approach. Although comprehensive, the author also focuses upon particular problem areas, aiming to prevent misinterpretation and subsequent mismanagement. The fourth edition, thoroughly updated, incorporates the many developments since the last edition and takes a fresh look at diagnosis and treatment. It tackles the subjects of arrhythmias in myocardial infarction, antiarrhythmic drugs and cardiac pacing, amongst others. The self-test section has also been revised.

'A thoroughly usable handbook to dip into and practical textbook covering the area of the basics and detail of cardiac arrhythmias for trainee cardiologists, technicians, GPSI cardiology and cardiologists but without unnecessary technical detail and references'
2002 BMA Medical Book Competition Awards
...a well conceived practical guide to the interpretation and treatment of the main cardiac rhythm disturbances. Many a medical registrar will be grateful for this clear, concise, up-to-date manual.
This book presents a concise and simplified approach to the diagnosis and management of abnormalities in cardiac rhythm... One of the book's strengths is the number and quality of electrocardiographic tracings that are juxtaposed with the text to highlight important points.
New England Journal of Medicine
This book about cardiac arrhythmias is of much educational value and is written and edited simply and clearly.
European Heart Journal
My choice...would be Bennett's Cardiac Arrhythmias which is rather more advanced and therefore suitable for junior hospital staff. This includes a list of key learning points at the end of each section and ends with a challenging ECG quiz.
British Medical Journal
I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it unreservedly to anaesthetists who wish to improve their knowledge of cardiac arrhythmias. My advice is to buy the book and to read it.
