About the book

Over the last few years, numerous cardiologists have expressed an interest in selection of books they should read to understand cardiac pacing and implantation technique. The efforts of authors of this book will be directed in that direction, to help general cardiologists understand cardiac pacing and conditions that require therapy. This book will provide a comprehensive review of the basic and clinical aspects of cardiac pacing.

The history of pacing, the newest devices with home monitoring as well as electrophysiologic aspect of cardiac pacing, with an illustration of the standard surgical implantation procedures will be discussed. Major pacing trials will be mentioned to highlight the benefits of the therapy in both sinus node disease and AV block. The rapid evolution of pacing technology will also be touched upon as we will devote a part of the book to pacing algorithms. The book will also discuss cardiac resynchronization therapy, left ventricular pacing leads and ICDs.

Dr. Cismaru Gabriel received his doctorate in medicine from the 'Iuliu Hatieganu” University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Cluj-Napoca, in 2016, and earned his MD degree from the same university in 2005. After completing his residency in cardiology, Dr. Cismaru began his electrophysiology fellowship at the Institut Lorrain du Coeur et des Vaisseaux Louis Mathieu, Nancy, France. In 2011, he started working at the Electrophysiology Laboratory of the Rehabilitation Hospital, Cluj-Napoca. He is a well versed operator and performs pacemaker CRT and ICD implantations both in children and adults. He is also trained for catheter ablation of both supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. Dr. Cismaru has authored or coauthored peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in the field of cardiac pacing, defibrillation, elctrophysiological study and catheter ablation.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
