MEDIA REVIEWS
Rich with example ECGs and designed for ease of access to information, Bennett s Cardiac Arrhythmias is the reference you can trust to help you master arrhythmia diagnosis and provide optimal treatment of any patient under your care. (Kingbook73's Medical Ebook and Video Collection, 7 October 2014) "Bennett s cardiac arrhythmias offers a comprehensive overview of the mechanisms and management of the most commonly encountered types of arrhythmia in clinical practice. A large variety of good quality examples are provided appended with concise explanatory notes...not only does the author outline and exemplify mechanisms and types of arrhythmia, but he also provides an introduction to electrophysiological principles and catheter ablation for arrhythmias. The basic principles of device functioning and programming are beautifully and clearly outlined in their respective chapters . Chapters focusing on anti-arrhythmic agents, with details on mechanisms, indications, and recently introduced anti-arrhythmic drugs, including those allowed to be used in pregnancy, as well as arrhythmic problems encountered in athletes, add more to the comprehensive nature of this book. This all makes this book a reference for a large variety of health care professionals and a good foundation for those needing a broad and thorough approach to the diagnosis and the most appropriate management of cardiac arrhythmias. (British Journal of Cardiology, 1 March 2014) contains detailed ECG tracings of almost every variation of arrhythmias, and combines with detailed descriptions and clear explanations. It then goes further, with in-depth explanations of aspects such as antiarrhythmic drugs, cardiac pacing, implantable defibrillators, and catheter ablation. Every step of the way, this book concentrates on the practical aspects of arrhythmias by giving advice on identification and treatment, as well as what not to do. This book will be of use to all grades from trainee up to consultant. All in all, I found this book a pleasure to read. It is very practical, it is very clear, and best of all, it is extremely well illustrated. (British Journal of Anaesthesia, 1 March 2014) This is an excellent book for clinicians at various levels of comfort with electrocardiograms and telemetry, given that it starts with basic overviews of broad categories followed by detailed descriptions of individual arrhythmiasence.
