Clinical arrhythmology – an essential field of cardiology

Mariana Floria


Clinical arrhythmology is an essential field for both electrophysiologists and cardiologists: in the case of the former to prevent the specialist from becoming a technician and in the case of the latter to fully understand the specialty. The clinical guidelines reaffirm this idea while also recommending an increasingly widespread interventional approach throughout the range of arrhythmias.
