Development in a majority of medicine branches today is based on technological advancement. This is the case in cardiology, where medical devices designed to correct heart rhythm – pacemakers, cardioverters-defibrillators and biventricular systems – are implanted in order to help a sick heart.Medical pacing devices today are only developed and produced globally by a several producers who make different technical solutions, algorithms, system parameters etc.The book Implantable Cardiac Devices Technology is targeted at biomedical, clinical engineers, technicians in practice, students of biomedical disciplines, and all medical staff who are required to understand the basics of pacing technology. The book is comprised of fourteen chapters that are further subdivided according to specific topics. Chapters dealing with basic heart anatomy, physiology and arythmology are included for the sake of comprehensiveness.Chapters avoid the description of special functions, but cover general procedures and parameters common for the systems of all producers. Hyponatremia: Evaluation and Treatment is a comprehensive review of hyponatremia, with an emphasis on managing this disorder from diagnosis to treatment. The incidence and occurrence of acute and chronic hyponatremia in general terms are covered, as well as hyponatremia induced by drugs and exercise and disorders of the central nervous, cardiovascular and digestive systems. Common clinical scenarios are presented along with both traditional and new methods of treatment.
