Concise, compact, fully-illustrated and easy to read, Arrhythmia Essentials, 2nd Edition provides detailed, practical information on recognizing and treating heart rhythm disturbances for clinicians with any level of expertise. The author team, led by renowned authority in cardiac electrophysiology, Dr. Brian Olshansky, guides you skillfully through the different types of arrhythmias and how they present on ECGs. You’ll find specific examples of each arrhythmia, numerous algorithms to facilitate an approach to arrhythmia diagnosis and management, updates on medical therapy, and indications for implantable rhythm management devices and ablation – all in a convenient, softcover volume that’s perfect for on-the-go reference.


"This book is easy to read, and a treat for clinicians who look forward to treating patients with heart rhythm disorders. It is an ideal handbook, appropriately comprehensive while easy to read. It covers the basics of arrhythmia recognition as well as providing algorithms on the management of simple and complex arrhythmias. While the audience for the book is narrow, that is by intention, as it focuses on a very specific aspect of cardiology. It is an essential title for cardiologists and cardiology fellows who must diagnose and treat heart rhythm disorders daily." Reviewed by Mohammed A. Ahmed, DO (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
