Includes bibliographical references and index




Over the past three decades, the field of cardiac arrhythmias has witnessed rapid technological advances in patient care and treatment. Although physicians primarily direct the management of this process, a clear need exists for well trained, knowledgeable support personnel, such as registered nurses, physician assistants and cardiovascular technicians, whose practices involve different aspects of pacing and electrophysiology. This unique manual fills an information void that has existed in the field of pacing and electrophysiology, as the only guide providing standardized criteria for the certification of associated professionals. To acknowledge the need for different levels of proficiency, the guide includes a core curriculum, and further sections outlining an appropriate body of knowledge for those specialising in pacing and arrhythmia devices, or electrophysiology. Major topics are listed in the label of the chapter, followed by a brief introduction. Objectives, a glossary, and ample references all enable the reader to conduct a self-paced tutorial, and practices to establish competency based on education/orientation programs which comply with JCAHO and other regulatory bodies. Mastery of this book's content should bot only help establish a more reliable professional standard, but, in so doing, enhance the quality of patient care.
