Pacing and defibrillation have become the leading therapeutic treatments of heart rhythm disorders, including bradycardia and tachycardia. The history of the successful development of bioelectric therapies includes the development of experimental and theoretical methodologies, novel bioengineering approaches and state-of-the-art clinical implantable device therapies. This volume will present a uniform thematic collection of reviews written by the leading basic and applied scientists working in basic bioengineering research laboratories, who have contributed to the development of current understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of pacing and electrophysiology, and who are at the leading edge of further developments in electrotherapy.
