Review Quotes
From the Foreword by Fred Morady, MD "Dr. Abedin has succeeded admirably in producing a concise review of both basic and clinical electrophysiology that complements but does not replace larger electrophysiology textbooks. This book should serve as an excellent resource for students of cardiac electrophysiology at all levels."
