Abstract This book is a comprehensive review of the many aspects of temporary cardiac pacing.

Several chapters are devoted to newer techniques and concepts in temporary pacing. A chapter is devoted to transcutaneous cardiac pacing, which may play an increasing role in the emergency setting before transvenous pacing can be established.
