Explains the mechanisms of all forms of atrial flutter, giving the reader a comprehensive presentation of this important subject matter. Describes in just the right amount of detail the mechanisms, ECG recognition, emergency response, symptoms, and the cure of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. Discusses how to cure idiopathic ventricular tachycardia with transvenous radiofrequency ablation information not found in other references. Offers consistent coverage that includes ECG recognition, pediatrics, mechanism, symptoms, physical assessment, and emergency treatment, giving the reader complete information for each arrhythmia. Presents an easy-to-understand chapter on cellular electrophysiology a traditionally difficult subject allowing readers to better understand arrhythmogenic mechanisms.
