This monograph brings together cardiologists, bioengineers, and surgeons to report on the present status of the new rapidly expanding, complex field of cardiac pacing. The book provides not only a review and a critical appraisal of reported research and clinical experience, but also an exposition of the advances, problems, and evaluation of the possible application of the new work to patient care. The volume deals with the history, anatomy and pathology of the conducting system, with the engineering, physiologic and electrocardiographic aspects of pacing and with techniques, results and reasons for pacemaker failure. It concludes with a presentation of the experimental and clinical experience with His bundle recordings.
