The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization
By Tom Kenny, RN

Medical, Austin, TX, USA
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an exciting new
option for a growing number of heart failure patients, but CRT
systems present special challenges to clinicians, even those
accustomed to working with pacemakers. Now, Tom Kenny demystifies
the field in this timely, easy-to-understand paperback.
The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy
concentrates on the practical aspects of how these devices work and
how to follow the growing number of patients who are using them to
fight heart failure. Designed specifically for the non-specialist,
the book explains how the device works, how and why CRT-paced ECGs
look different, and how to test for proper function of a CRT
system. It also includes a systematic (numbered sequence) guide to
follow-up that you can use in the clinic.
This practical reference offers:
clear, straightforward explanations that require no prior
training in device therapy
many CRT ECGs to familiarize you with what you will encounter
a generous illustration program that includes diagrams, charts,
and anatomy pictures to reinforce the text
sensible advice on daily issues and troubleshooting
current references to the latest clinical studies and device
accessible information, organized for ease of navigation
a helpful glossary at the end of the book
Both practicing and prospective clinicians will find CRT much
less daunting when The Nuts and Bolts of Cardiac Resynchronization
Therapy is close at hand.
