This book provides a comprehensive and clinically based approach to the diagnosis and management of arrhythmia disorders for the cardiology fellow and practicing general cardiologist. The clinical approach encompasses evidence-based medicine as well as practical pearls for the diagnosis and management of arrhythmia disorders. Chapters provide a comprehensive discussion of arrhythmia disorders, from noninvasive diagnostic strategies through pharmacologic and invasive therapeutic strategies. The level of sophistication ranges from the most basic to more sophisticated topics, and provides an excellent complement to Josephson's more advanced text.

Organized by therapeutic goals, the Third Edition of this comprehensive textbook on electrotherapies provides a fundamental understanding of contemporary, evidence-based intervention and assessment procedures. The text takes a problem-oriented approach and recommends interventions consistent with both theory and the clinical efficacy of the intervention for specific, clearly identified clinical disorders. This edition has a new chapter on electrical stimulation and biofeedback for genitourinary dysfunction, including incontinence management in both women and men. All the intervention-based chapters have a new format that emphasizes evidence-based practice and practical application. Additional self-study questions are included in each chapter. NEW TO THIS EDITION: New chapter on Electrical Stimulation and Biofeedback for Genitourinary Dysfunction (Chapter 9) includes topics such as incontinence management in both women and men, and gives solid evidence to support or refute specific procedures. New organization Chapter on mechanisms of pain transmission and pain control with electrotherapy will be moved up to chapter 4 to make the first four chapters the theoretical basis for the clinical application chapters that follow. Chapter on electrophysiologic evaluation will become the last chapter (chapter 12) in order to enable students to meet core educational competencies. New chapter format for the intervention chapters (chapters 5-11) adds consistency and clarity to emphasize evidenced-based practice and practical application. Additional self-study questions are included in each chapter to enhance understanding of key concepts. New emphasis on evidence-based preferential practice patterns.

Bridging the clinical electrophysiological investigation with the neurological consultation Acutely ill patients present with symptoms that don’t immediately yield a diagnosis. Electrophysiological testing can support diagnosis but only if the appropriate tests are ordered. They must be properly interpreted in conjunction with the actual symptoms. Clinical Electrophysiology presents a wide range of symptoms with specific electrophysiological results. The handbook shows how the complete picture leads to better diagnostic, prognostic or therapeutic conclusions. The book is organized by the presenting neurological problem in a clinical setting. For each case the authors provide a possible electrophysiological result. This is interpreted and tied to the patient’s symptoms to yield a clinical solution. The handbook avoids theoretical discussion to provide a direct practical guide that: Begins with the patient’s symptoms Uses a range of electrophysiological modalities Shows different test results for similar symptoms Relates clinical observation to electrophysiological testing A final casebook section presents readers with rarer clinical challenges for self-testing. Providing practical, to-the-point guidance on electrophysiological investigations, Clinical Electrophysiology will guide all neurologists attending acutely ill patients.

The clinical electrophysiology of the human somatosensory cortex was investigated with a combined approach using cortical stimulations and somatosensory evoked responses on electrocorticography, scalp-EEG, and magnetoencephalography, a new neurophysiological technique. The spatiotemporal structure of the evoked response was studied with novel biophysical modeling techniques which allowed identification of the three-dimensional intracerebral location, time activity, and interaction of the neuronal sources in human somatosensory cortex. Thus, new aspects on the functional anatomy of the human somatosensory cortex could be elicited. Furthermore, the somatotopy of the hand somatosensory cortex was investigated. Clinically, the results of comparison of the different techniques can improve the non-invasive localization criteria for primary motor and somatosensory cortex which is important in patients undergoing neurosurgical procedures adjacent to central fissure.

​Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) is a highly specialized, complex and growing field of cardiology. As understanding of the evaluation of treatment of arrhythmias continues to advance, learning and understanding the principles of EP in order to provide the best possible treatments for patients can be a daunting task. The Manual of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology is a guide to the clinical diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias that meets this need. With a scientific, practical, and multi-disciplinary approach, the book establishes the foundation of the cardiac electrophysiology and provides multimedia illustrations to facilitate and enhance understanding. These illustrations will come directly from real case studies, to provide an authentic look at each principle of EP. Since the world of EP moves so fast, and arrhythmias are diagnosed and treated in real time, it is often difficult to learn EP from static texts, images and diagrams. This book is designed to be accessible enough to serve as an introduction to EP, but advanced enough to serve as a guide for experienced practitioners. EP students of all levels, including medical students, residents, fellows, mid-level providers, nurses, technologist, primary care providers, cardiologists and electrophysiologists will find value in the Manual of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.​

Clinical cardiac electrophysiology is one of the most rapidly expanding fields in cardiology. There are currently no comprehensive case based books in this field. A Case Review of Cardiac Electrophysiology is a case based review of cardiac electrophysiology. The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive case based review of cardiac electrophysiology. It will include implantable device cases as well as ablation cases and difficult clinical cases and may be used as a useful review in cardiac electrophysiology for those taking board examinations. There will also be cases that will be useful for associate professionals working in the field of cardiac electrophysiology including those individuals working for industry.

Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of mortality and morbidity in the Western Hemisphere. While significant progress has been made in treating a major sub-category of cardiac disease, arrhythmias, significant unmet needs remain. In particular, every day, thousands of patients die because of arrhythmias in the US alone, and atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia affecting millions of patients in the US alone at a given time. Therefore, there is a public need to continue to develop new and better therapies for arrhythmias. Accordingly, an ever increasing number of biomedical, pharmaceutical, and medical personnel is interested in studying various aspects of arrhythmias at a basic, translational, and applied level, both in industry (ie Biotech, Pharmaceutical and device), and in academia. Not only has our overall understanding of molecular bases of disease dramatically increased, but so has the number of available and emerging molecular, pharmacological or device treatment based therapies. This practical, state-of-the art handbook will summarize and review key research methods and protocols, their advantages and pitfalls, with a focus on practical implementation, and collaborative cross-functional research. The volume will include visual and easy-to-use graphics, bulleted summaries, boxed summary paragraphs, links to reference websites, equipment manufacturers where appropriate, photographs of typical experimental setups and so forth, to keep this book very focused on practical methods and implementation, and yet, provide enough theory that the principles are clearly understood and can be easily applied.
