Descriptif détaillé : Cardiac Arrhythmias, 7th ed
Cardiac Arrhythmias is a long-established and widely respected guide to the interpretation and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders. Acting as a practical handbook to dip into when required, and also as a comprehensive textbook, it covers the basics and detail of cardiac arrhythmias at a realistic level without overwhelming the reader with unnecessary technical details and references.
For this seventh edition, the content has been brought up to date throughout, incorporating results from recent major clinical trials, developments in the treatment of atrial fibrillation, greater sophistication in pacemaker technology and the increased availability of defibrillators.
The book will provide invaluable advice to junior hospital doctors, coronary care nurses, cardiac technicians, higher level medical students and practising physicians requiring a ready reference to this important subject.
Highly Commended at the 2002 BMA Medical Book Competition Awards (Sixth edition): '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'
From the reviews of previous editions:
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 read it. British Journal of Anaesthesia
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 Lancet
This book presents a concise and simplified approach to the diagnosis and management of abnormalities in cardiac rhythmOne of the books 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 Bennetts 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
