Abstract
Cardiac pacing is one of the best examples where the developments in technology and the microchip industry have resulted in outstanding clinical benefits to patients, and it is likely that further innovation and miniaturization will continue to make this specialty a stimulating and exciting one. As pacing is being devolved from specialist to smaller cardiology centers and where pacemaker implantation is becoming the domain of cardiologists rather than surgeons, there is a need for practical clinical guidance to pacing issues that can be used alongside a comprehensive practical training program in an experienced pacing centre. Cardiac Pacing and Device Therapy is a practical reference for all those involved in the day-to-day care of paced patients and particularly for those cardiologists planning a career in this most interesting and exciting specialty, the so-called "device specialist". The text and images will give the reader a greater understanding of the type of technology and equipment that is currently available from the cardiac device industry. The book contains practical information on temporary and epicardial pacing, elective generator change, explant procedures, pacing in children, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization therapy, troubleshooting in pacing and training guidelines/regulations for those intending to make a career in pacing/device implantation. As such, this book provides an superb illustrated introduction to those with an interest in cardiac pacing and device therapy, from trainees and clinical fellows through to consultant cardiologists involved in a pacemaker program, cardiac physiologists and other allied medical professionals.

Abstract
Development in a majority of medicine branches today is based on technological advancement. This is the case in cardiology, where medical devices designed to correct heart rhythm – pacemakers, cardioverters-defibrillators and biventricular systems – are implanted in order to help a sick heart.Medical pacing devices today are only developed and produced globally by a several producers who make different technical solutions, algorithms, system parameters etc. The book Implantable Cardiac Devices Technology is targeted at biomedical, clinical engineers, technicians in practice, students of biomedical disciplines, and all medical staff who are required to understand the basics of pacing technology. The book is comprised of fourteen chapters that are further subdivided according to specific topics. Chapters dealing with basic heart anatomy, physiology and arythmology are included for the sake of comprehensiveness. Chapters avoid the description of special functions, but cover general procedures and parameters common for the systems of all producers. The book is intended to serve as a monothematic textbook. In order to make the text comprehensible and well arranged for a reader, references to professional literature are only provided once in a respective chapter.
Contents
Pacemaker history and development -- Basics of pacing -- Cardiac anatomy and physiology -- Cardiac rhythm disorders, pathophysiology, pharmacological treatment -- Pacing modes -- Indication for implants -- Leads -- Pacing systems -- Pacemaker timing -- Implantable cardioverters-defibrillator -- Cardiac resynchronization therapy -- Implant, explant and replacement of systems -- Patient follow-ups -- Electromagnetic compatibility and technical requirements.
