Interpretation of Cardiac Arrhythmias presupposes no prior knowledge of arrhythmias, and progresses from basic to the complex. The didactic sections focus extensively on the mechanism of arrhythmia, using laddergrams and other diagramatic devices to help the student visualize what is happening with the cardiac conduction system. What is an arrhythmia? The American Heart Association has information about Atrial Fibrillation, quivering heart, Bradycardia, slow heart rate, Premature contraction, Tachycardia, fast beat, Ventricular Fibrillation, fluttering heart, Rhythm Disorders, treatment of arrhythmia, symptoms of arrhythmia, diagnosis of arrhythmia, monitoring the heart, and much more.

Study of a patient's cardiac rhythms using an EKG may indicate normal or abnormal conditions. Abnormal rhythms are called arrhythmia or sometimes, dysrhythmia.

From the reviews: “This book encompasses the progress in the field of cardiac arrhythmias over the past decades. Designed for a broad audience from trainees to seasoned electrophysiologists, the book is able to educate such an audience through comprehensive information from basic anatomy of arrhythmias and diagnostic methods to advanced, up-to-date options of treatment. .   A normal heart rhythm contains a P wave, a QRS, and a T wave.³ Knowing the normal amplitude, deflection, and duration of each component is essential to accurate rhythm and EKG interpretation. Amplitude: This measures the voltage of the beat and is determined by how high the wave reaches, as measured by each square vertically on the chart.   For 25 years, Cardiac Arrhythmias has been the go-to guide for non-specialists seeking a solid foundation in electrophysiology and its relationship to treating arrhythmias. Now, the pioneer and father of modern clinical electrophysiology, Eric Prystowsky, teams up with globally renowned experts to bring this landmark guide fully up to : Eric Prystowsky.   This book is primarily a sourcebook of cardiac EKG tracings; visually, as much as seventy percent of the content consists of these tracings. The book is designed to assist a wide variety of medical professionals (e.g., anesthesiologists, internists, surgeons, doctors in training, nurses, and cardiac technicians) to identify arrhythmias using tracings/5(32).
