This book is for any individual who sees patients with implantable devices, or who will be taking an examination related to device management.
Many caregivers working in the field of medicine find that one of the best ways to learn is by working through clinical cases, and for many people it’s even more helpful to work through the examples as unknowns. This is especially true in the arena of implantable cardiac devices.
In an effort to provide this experience, experts from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, have produced three volumes of case studies that encompass variations of normal and abnormal function of pacemakers, ICDs, and CRT devices.
The texts have been written collaboratively by six clinicians with differing backgrounds in an effort to present the cases in such a way that they are applicable to a variety of caregivers. Cases for this book were selected because of their clinical relevance and their usefulness for illustrating general principles, practical tips, or interesting findings in device practice, with the goal of advancing general concepts in device management.

Every physician remembers weekly morning case conferences discussing and sharing interesting and uniquely educational cases. This book continues that tradition and stems from the interdisciplinary electrophysiology conferences held at Mayo Clinic. Cases based on patients with implantable cardiac devices are presented with pertinent images or tracings followed by a single multiple-choice question and rationale for the correct answer.
This book is intended to serve as a practical means of self-assessment, education, and acquisition of clinical pearls.
The audience is physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals at different levels of experience who see patients with cardiac rhythm devices or who will be taking an examination related to device management.
This third volume in the Questions for Examination Review and Clinical Practice series follows the same format of its predecessors and begins with case number 66. A total of 43 full-color illustrated cases are presented. There is no table of contents, as the authors feel it is more educational working through the cases as an unknown. Readers can find specific areas of interest or diagnosis in the appendix section with corresponding page numbers. Purchasers of the book get free access to a digital edition. It also has a multimedia component that includes narrated slides, additional content, and audio discussions highlighting key clinical pearls.
This is an excellent interactive publication that presents general principles and interesting findings in device practice. It is meant for a variety of caregivers, and is well suited for practicing cardiologists who deal with patients with cardiac devices, electrophysiology fellows in training, or general cardiology fellows on electrophysiology rotations.
