Cardiac Pacemakers Step-by-Step: An Illustrated Guide by S. Serge Barold

By S. Serge Barold

Through the years we now have heard many lawsuits that there's no extremely simple e-book on cardiac pacing for genuine rookies. we now have additionally heard that every one the books on cardiac pacing are too complex and most unlikely to appreciate through newcomers. Many have voiced the desire that at some point somebody might write a ebook within the similar kind as Dubin’s booklet on easy electrocardiography that is an enormous bestseller with good over 1000000 offered in lots of languages. A ‘Dummy’ e-book on cardiac pacing might entice nurses, cardiology technicians, scientific scholars and pacemaker businesses for education their staff.

We all started with the belief that the reader may be aware of the rules of electrocardiography as in Dubin’s publication yet not anything approximately cardiac pacing. We rigorously studied the Dubin publication and think that we have got enhanced his educating strategy. The e-book includes numbered illustrations every one illustrating an idea within the kind of a diagram drawn professionally. now we have been cautious to make the art easy for simple comprehension.

Each representation will occupy a web page and feature a number of strains of textual content less than it. we've got already accomplished almost all these. it truly is crucial that there are all in colour, this can be a distinctive promoting point.

The three authors have had substantial adventure within the box. Dr Barold has released 10 books on cardiac pacing and wrote the part on cardiac pacing within the 4th and fifth version of Braunwald’s publication, warmth Disease."
S. Serge Barold, Roland Stroobandt and Alfons Sinnaeve

Content:

  • The plates depicting an idea with occupy 1 pages. every one plate contains a diagram and a brief text.
  • All diagrams are in colour. In black and white they'd lose their educating value
  • There might be approx two hundred plates.
  • There may be approx a hundred electrocardiograms.
  • There might be a thesaurus, appendices and index
