With a growing population of young patients with congenital heart disease reaching adulthood, this unique new book offers an in-depth guide to managing the challenges and issues related to device therapy in this patient group.
The only book resource dedicated to pacing, cardiac resynchronization therapy and ICD therapy for the pediatric and congenital heart disease patient
Contains practical advice for pacemaker and ICD implantation, programming, trouble-shooting, managing complications and follow up
Up-to-date with the latest in device technology
Contains multiple graphics, device electrogram tracings, and radiographic images for clarity
Includes video clips and multiple choice questions on companion website for selected chapters
An invaluable resource for both the specialist pediatric cardiologist and the general cardiologist responsible for children with heart disease and pacing devices
