Product Description

Written by Julia Ann Purcell, RN, MN, FAAN and Barbara Johnston Fletcher, RN, MN, FAAN

Our pacemaker book now includes information on dual chamber, single chamber and biventricular pacemakers as well as internal cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). The book covers all aspects of pacemakers and ICDs, including why one is needed, how it is implanted and how to care for the device. Your patients will also get information about traveling, emotional adjustments, what to avoid (like large magnets or large motors), what activities are acceptable and how to check the device to ensure it's working properly. The book finishes with helpful, interactive pages, such as FAQs, resources and summary pages to record important information about one's pacemaker or ICD.
