Research and Markets: Cardiac Mapping, 3rd Edition - Latest Achievements and Breakthroughs in the Field of Interventional Electrophysiology and Imaging Technologies.

DUBLIN -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Cardiac Mapping, 3rd Edition" to their offering.

Since the publication of the second edition of Cardiac Mapping, substantial achievements and breakthroughs have been made in the field of interventional electrophysiology and imaging technologies. Today mapping technology is no longer an investigational research tool, rather an essential part of the clinical electrophysiology laboratory. Mapping of complex arrhythmias such as atrial and ventricular fibrillation is emerging as a new era in the management of these arrhythmias. This edition focuses on new developments in the field such as mapping of complex arrhythmias, navigation systems, and image integration, with information on the strengths and limitations of each mapping technology. New to this is the inclusion of a DVD illustrating real time data from actual cases. Cardiac Mapping remains an integral part of the science and practice of complex rhythm management, and central resource for the interventional electrophysiologist, rhythmologist and understanding the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias.
