About this book

Pacing and defibrillation have become the leading therapeutic treatments of heart rhythm disorders, including bradycardia and tachycardia. The history of the successful development of bioelectric therapies includes the development of experimental and theoretical methodologies, novel bioengineering approaches and state-of-the-art clinical implantable device therapies. This volume will present a uniform thematic collection of reviews written by the leading basic and applied scientists working in basic bioengineering research laboratories, who have contributed to the development of current understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of pacing and electrophysiology, and who are at the leading edge of further developments in electrotherapy.

Igor R. Efimov, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri.

Mark W. Kroll, Ph.D., is Adjunct Professor Biomedical Engineering, California Polytechnic University and University of Minnesota..

Patrick J. Tchou, M.D. is  in the Section of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.

 

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book discusses the background of the theory and methodology that drive current pacing and defibrillation strategies. … The most likely readers are electrophysiologists, research scientists in the field of cardiac bioelectric therapy, or physician-scientists with an interest in this field. … This is an extremely thorough book on the mechanisms that drive the current clinical utility of pacemakers and defibrillators. It will be a useful reference for many electrophysiologists and researchers in the field." (Louis A Salvaggio, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2009)
