Recent progress in interventional therapies has revolutionized the management of cardiac arrhythmias, resulting in a remarkable improvement in outcomes for patients. Yet the diagnosis and management of arrhythmias are still viewed as a complex and inaccessible area of modern cardiology. Fast Facts: Cardiac Arrhythmias cuts through the technical detail to provide a better understanding of how the patient with arrhythmia presents, and how the problem should be best investigated and managed. This highly readable handbook is a practical resource for all primary care physicians, cardiologists in training, cardiac nurses, technicians and medical students seeking a better understanding of the mechanisms of arrhythmias and the contemporary therapies available, with a view to improving patient care.

"A welcome and important addition to the Fast Facts series … Having kept faithful to the popular formula of this series the authors have produced an excellent synopsis of this topic that will be accessible to medical students, health care professionals, primary care physicians and cardiology trainees alike … ideal for quick reference. The content is succinct and well thought out, particularly with regard to the level of detail. The first few chapters … are approached in a very reader friendly manner with helpful tables along the way. One of the highlights of the book is the management chapter which gives a practical, no nonsense approach to key principles of management which, if adhered to, will serve the reader well in a difficult clinical scenario. I personally have not seen a better concise section like this in any other book and the authors should be commended for this. In summary, this is an excellent book that will appeal to anyone wishing to understand cardiac arrhythmias and their management. It is surprisingly informative for a short book and represents a time efficient way of gaining knowledge in this subject. I would not hesitate to recommend it." - Dr Shouvik Haldar, Electrophysiology Research Fellow & Cardiology Specialist Registrar, Imperial College, London, Cardiology News, 1 July 2013.
