The field's foremost authorities offer guidance on the use of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and pacemakers for the management of congestive heart failure. They explain how these devices work; examine the patient-and device-selection process; review implant techniques, and outline aftercare. This concise resource makes this complex subject easy to understand. Discusses patient selection as well as aftercare. Features practice guidelines and techniques for implanting all new devices. Offers an outstanding review of cardiovascular anatomy. Provides an overview on the prognosis for congestive heart failure, and clinical rationales for the selection of device therapy. Reviews the results of clinical trials.
