Essential companions for both the aspiring and practising electrophysiologist, The EHRA Book of Pacemaker, ICD and CRT Troubleshooting and The EHRA Book of Interventional Electrophysiology assist device specialists in tackling both common and unusual situations that they may encounter during daily practice. Taking a case-based approach, they cover pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy, and, electrophysiological procedures for supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, respectively.

Following the success of the first volume of The EHRA Book of Pacemaker, ICD and CRT Troubleshooting, a second volume, with new cases, has now been developed. A timely addition as device therapy has seen many new developments since the first volume, with the advent of leadless pacing, conduction system pacing, and subcutaneous ICDs, amongst other novelties. These new technologies are covered in the book, as are general device troubleshooting issues which were not presented in the first volume.
Maintaining an identical format for the cases in this volume, which are arranged in separate sections on pacing (27 cases), ICDs (23 cases), and CRT (20 cases), each section is arranged in a logical manner to guide the reader and help build on knowledge gained from reading the previous cases. As with the first volume, the content will help those planning on sitting the EHRA cardiac pacing certification exam. There is significant detail regarding specific algorithms of different device manufacturers that will also appeal to general cardiologists, nurses, and allied professionals performing device follow-up.
This book will serve not only to further your technical knowledge but also to sharpen your observation and reasoning skills.

Edited by Haran Burri, University Hospital of Geneva, Switzerland, Carsten Israel, Evangelical Hospital, Bielefeld, Germany, and Jean-Claude Deharo, Timone Hospital, Marseilles, France
- Section 1: Pacemakers: Cases 1-35
- Section 2: Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator: Cases 36-53
- Section 3: Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy: Cases 54-70
The EHRA Book of Pacemaker, ICD and CRT Troubleshooting is the perfect companion for electrophysiologists, cardiology trainees and technical consultants working with device patients as well as for those studying for the EHRA accreditation exam in cardiac pacing.
Much more than just a technical manual of device algorithms, the cases help readers to consolidate their technical knowledge and improve their reasoning and observation skills so they are able to tackle device troubleshooting with confidence. The 70 cases are arranged in three sections by increasing levels of difficulty to walk readers through all the skills and knowledge they need in an easy-to-use and structured format. Each case contains a short clinical description and a device tracing followed by a multiple-choice question. Answers are supplied with detailed annotations of the tracing and an in-depth discussion of the case, highlighting practical hints and tips as well as providing an overview of the technical function of devices. A useful summary of principal device features and functions is also included.
The EHRA Book of Interventional Electrophysiology: Case-based learning with multiple choice questions
Edited by Hein Heidbuchel, University of Antwerp and University Hospital Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium, Mattias Duytschaever, Saint-Jan Hospital Bruges, Department of Cardiology, Bruges, Belgium and Haran Burri, University Hospital of Geneva, Switzerland.
Using clinical cases to encourage practical learning, this book assists electrophysiologists and device specialists in tackling both common and unusual situations that they may encounter during daily practice. Covering electrophysiological procedures for supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, the book enables specialists to deepen their understanding of complex concepts and techniques. Tracings are presented with multiple-choice questions to allow readers to hone their skills for interpreting challenging cases and to prepare for the EHRA certification exam in electrophysiology. Cases include orthodromic atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardia, pulmonary vein isolation, ventricular tachycardia ablation, and atypical left atrial flutter and more.
