This book translates fundamental knowledge in basic cardiac electrophysiology
from the bench to the bedside. Revised and updated for its second edition, the
text offers new coverage of the molecular mechanisms of ion channel behavior
and its regulation, complex arrhythmias, and the broadening roles of devices
and ablation. Clear, straightforward explanations are illustrated by plentiful
diagrams to make the material accessible to the non-specialist.
