Synopsis

Clinical Aspects of Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator Therapy by Martin Fromer

Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator therapy has now become a standard antiarrhythmic treatment, with the consequence that ICD technology is advancing apace. The ICD comes in increasingly smaller sizes, performs a greater range of pacing and defibrillation therapies, is supported by a range of diagnostics and telemetry, and very significantly, the ICD is now generally recognised as a more effective therapy for cardiac arrest patients than antiarrhythmic drugs such as amiodarone. The aim of the Clinical Approaches to Tachyarryhthmias series is to update the physician, cardiologist, and all those responsible for the the care of patients with cardiac arrhythmias. In this volume, Martin Fromer reviews the current status of the implantable defibrillator, recent technical developments, and indications for its use.

Reviews

This text provides a short but good review of the subject of intracardiac defibrillator implantation and the clinical data that support its use....This monograph on intracardiac defibrillator therapy is a worthy addition to the series on clinical approaches to tachyarrhythmias. Doody's Review Service For those looking for a relatively brief, up-to-date overview, Clinical Aspects of Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator Therapy is a nice addition to the bookshelf or briefcase. Canadian Journal of Cardiology The book is certainly a resource for fellows and faculty in electrophysiology and also for the cardiology fellow in clinical training, provided that he/she already has some knowledge of the subject.
