Pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators have moved out of the tertiary referral centres and are now routinely implanted in many large general hospitals. This book is designed for the general cardiology trainee at the beginning of their pacing career to act as an aid as they start implanting, whether they are in electrophysiology, devices, or general cardiology. This book is also useful to the cardiac technician as it contains invaluable information on device implantation and follow-up.
This book is an easy access guide to queries regarding programming, trouble-shooting and patient concerns. The book includes a helpful section on important and helpful tips, and is written in the successful Oxford Handbook format.

...designed for electrophysiologists, but will reach a wider readership as it informs beyond guiding the specialist...buy it, enjoy it and be guided well by it. ( British Journal of Hospital Medicine)
Anyone who has ever clutched a copy of an Oxford Handbook will immediately recognise this new publication from the Oxford University Press. The family DNA is there for all to see, from its pocket size to the durable plastic cover; from the indexing to the built in bookmarks...its bigest virtue is the fact that everything is written as bullet points or short concise paragraphs. And in true Oxford Handbook fashion, each pair of adjoining pages covers one topic and one topic only. This allows very thorough indexing, so finding what information you want is quick and easy. The quality of the information is also very comprehensive and virtually all topics are covered. ( Dr Munmohan Virdee, Book Reviews)
This is a concise and helpful practical handbook for those charged with providing or contributing to a pacing, ICD and ILR service. The origin of the book predominantly from a single centre and its reliance on accepted international guidelines give the book a consistent uniformity and an undisputed authority. The authors should be congratulated. ( from the foreword by Professor John Camm)
Dr. Jonathan Timperley studied medicine at the University of Leeds, before undertaking his specialist training in cardiology in Oxford. His sub-specialty interest is pacing devices and heart failure. During his time in Oxford he completed an MD in the field of echocardiographic assessment of cardiac disease.
Paul Leeson studied medicine at St. Andrews and Cambridge before moving to Oxford for specialist training in cardiology. His sub-specialty interest is in cardiovascular imaging. While in Cambridge he completed an MB/PHD programme and, during early clinical training undertook post-doctoral research at University College London. He is now a British Heart Foundation Fellow at the University of Oxford with a clinical research programme that uses ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging to study the development of cardiovascular disease. He is co-author of three Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Cardiology covering echocardiography, pacing and angiography.
Dr. Andrew Mitchell is Consultant Cardiologist in Jersey, Channel Islands and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. Dr. Mitchell has special interests in non-invasive imaging, with particular expertise in transoesophageal and intracardiac echocardiography. His other interests include the role of device therapy for arrythmia management. Dr. Mitchell is a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (FESC).
Dr. Timothy Betts is a Consultant in Cardiology and Cardiac Electrophysiology at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. His areas of expertise include general cardiology, electrophysiology, cardiac devices (including pacing, implantable defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization therapy) and ablation of arrhythmias. Dr. Betts graduated from Birmingham University Medical school in 1991 and trained in Cardiologuy in Southampton and the Wessex Region. He was awarded his Doctorate of Medicine by Southampton University in 2003, supported by the British Cardiac Society International Research Fellowship. In 2001-2002 he completed a Fellowship in Adult and Paediatric Electrophysiology at Northwestern University and the Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago. His research interests include the pathogenesis and ablation of atrial fibrillation.
