From Cell to Bedside-Why Make the Journey?

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In the field of clinical cardiac electrophysiology, many of the commonly utilized diagnostic and therapeutic tools employed by the practicing clinician derive their origin from basic science discoveries. This trend continues in this rapidly evolving field. It is incumbent upon practicing clinicians in this field to acquire and maintain an understanding of basic science cardiac electrophysiology principles to aid in clinical practice. This will allow them to practice clinical care of their patients with a solid foundation built upon these principles, to independently assess the utility and efficacy of newly introduced diagnostic and therapeutic tools, and to actively participate in the acquisition of new basic science knowledge related to arrhythmias and conduction system disease.
