Essential Cardiac Electrophysiology, Third Edition
The Self-Assessment Approach
Fact-based and clinically-focused, this new third edition of Essential Cardiac Electrophysiology: The Self-Assessment Approach is an ideal reference in a bullet-point format that provides a concise and essential overview of electrophysiology. Packed with ABIM-style 200 multiple-choice questions designed to aid readers' understanding of key concepts and retention of essential facts, it is an excellent study aid for electrophysiology fellows, cardiology fellows, and electrophysiologists preparing for board examination or other EP certifications. Comprehensively updated with the latest recommendations and findings, it includes multiple tables, electrophysiology tracings and illustrations, and a treasury of electrophysiology pearls. This expanded Third Edition includes new chapters on AV blocks, channelopathies, and ventricular arrhythmias in a structurally normal heart, along with enhanced coverage of: · Electrophysiologic aspects of AVNRT and AVRT · Long and short RP tachycardia · Parahisian pacing · Bystander activation of accessory pathways · Brugada syndrome · Long QT syndrome and pregnancy A note on the questions: All the questions are ABIM style. Some of the questions have a tangential approach, i.e., not only one has to know the correct diagnosis but also has to know the correct management approach. Some questions are "concept" questions; i.e., it is to evaluate a basic concept to verify understanding.
