Synopsis: This book is a "reader friendly" resource which will provide a ready reference for diagnosis and management of both simple and complex cardiac rhythm disorders in infants and children. It will be beneficial not only for the specialists in pediatric cardiology but also for those specialists in pediatrics, internal medicine, adult cardiology, critical care and emergency medicine.
The chapters on benign arrhythmias, syncope, long QT syndrome and pharmacological therapy will be of particular interest to the generalist. The specialist will find most helpful, the discussion of the newer managements of cardiac arrhythmias including radiofrequency catheter ablation and device therapy.
Because the book is organized as a self-teaching tool, it is replete with electrocardiographic and electrophysiological tracings and, as such, will be advantageous to the students of this discipline. The chapters are authored by many authorities in the field of cardiac arrhythmias in children. This book provides a consolidated knowledge base with balanced discussion of methods of investigation and treatment from a diverse authorship which enhances objectivity and reduces institutional bias.
This concise, single volume is a convenient, comprehensive resource for physicians and healthcare workers at all levels.
Review: "This text provides a useful update and source of information on childhood arrhythmias from the American point of view. It is a reference that trainees and practicioners of pediatric cardiology should be aware of and perhaps consider for their personal library."
--Canadian Journal of Cardiology
"In summary, Current Concepts in Diagnosis and Management of Arrhythmias in Infants and Children is an excellent book for the general pediatric (or adult) cardiologist wanting to know more about electrophysiology."
"This textbook provides detailed, clear, and up-to-date information and guidance in the field of pediatric cardiac arrhythmias. It is a valuable reference for the Pediatric Cardiologist, and an important textbook for students in this field."
"The book is generously illustrated throughout, and covers all the essential areas of diagnosis and treatment of childhood arrhythmias. Although concerned with the management of arrhythmias in children, many of the principles apply to adults, and this will provide a useful reference text to the adult as well as paediatric cardiologist."
