Includes bibliographical references and index



The New Edition of this definitive text offers comprehensive guidance on both cardiac pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators. It examines the clinical, engineering, and practical aspects of patient and device management from before implantation through follow-up. Readers will find a wealth of new advances in this revised and updated reference.
