Quickly spot the telltale signs that distinguish a potentially deadly arrhythmia from a benign one. And learn to prevent arrhythmias--or stop them in their tracks. With this video, you'll get practical information on every clinically relevant aspect of arrhythmias. You'll see exactly what's happening inside your patient and know precisely what it means for your nursing care.
-link your patient's assessment findings to changes in the electrical conduction system.
-differentiate between atrial fibrillation and various types of atrioventricular (AV) blocks and ventricular arrhythmias, including their pathophysiologies.
-analyze electrocardiogram tracings and other test results to pinpoint the type and severity of your patient's arrhythmias.
-provide or assist with state-of-the-art treatments, such as implantable defibrillator insertion and drug therapy.
-intervene rapidly and effectively to limit complications.
-teach patients about vital tests, treatments, and follow-up care
...and much, much more.

Cardiac Electrophysiology and Catheter Ablation is the first handbook-sized practical training guide for medical, technical and industry personnel needing easily accessible, detailed information on the theory and practice of modern invasive investigation and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Highly illustrated throughout, it both simplifies and clarifies the basic electrophysiological principles of many arrhythmias, as well as providing practical advice on performing catheter ablation in patients with a variety of arrhythmias.
