Electrical Disease of the Heart, 2nd Edition, volume 1, provides a valuable insight to the latest developments in the field of cardiac electrophysiology and clinical electrocardiology. Each chapter includes up-to-date results of studies aimed at providing an understanding of the electrical function of the heart in health and disease, established and evidence-based knowledge of clinical outcomes, areas of controversy, and future trends. This book is highly relevant to a broad audience, ranging from medical and graduate students, to clinicians and scientists.
Provides a perspective on primary (heritable) electrical disease of the heart and sudden cardiac death in cardiology, neurology, nephrology, endocrinology by emphasizing the clinical and basic aspects of the physiology and pathophysiology in conjunction with new clinical findings and research discoveries
Thought-provoking and enlightening emphases on the latest research and clinical accomplishments
Structure of chapters: exposure to the experimental background of each electrical disease, syndrome, and ECG phenomenon stressing the relationship with clinical practice
