Dr. Hein Wellens, considered the founding father of clinical arrhythmology, studied medicine at the University of Leiden. From 1973 to 1977, he was Professor of Cardiology at the University of Amsterdam. From 1977 to 2001, he served as Professor of Cardiology and Chairman of the Department of Cardiology at the Academic Hospital of Maastricht University, creating a school of arrhythmology that educated more than 130 cardiologists from around the world during his tenure. Dr. Wellens also directed the Interuniversity Cardiological Institute of the Netherlands (ICIN) from 1993 to 2003 and was Associate Editor of Circulation from 1993 to 2004.

Case studies.- Conclusion.
As arrhythmias may be transient in nature and not seen during the shorter recording times of the standard ECG, ECG Holter monitoring allows the physician to make better informed decisions for the cardiac patient. The devices are worn by patients on an outpatient basis for days or weeks and can also be implanted subcutaneously. ECG Holter recordings are especially useful since they can be programmed individually for activation and specific tracing analysis.
Designed for rapid study, this book contains 100 illustrative cases in ECG Holter monitoring. Each case consists of a tracing followed by a brief explanation of the findings. 100 Cases in ECG Holter is the perfect resource for busy physicians looking to optimize their skills at interpreting ECG Holter readings.
