Separate subdivisions on the preexcitation syndrome, on metabolic derangements, and on cardiac monitoring, defibrillation and pacemaking are included. Some papers are concerned with clinical problems, some with myocardial energetics and with the hemodynamic effects of the arrhythmias; mostly, however, the general physiology of the myocardium and the pathogenesis of abnormal impulse formation and conduction are analyzed. Some of the presentations are reviews of recent as well as old contributions; some are reports of new research.
