The authors aim to provide a comprehensive review of ECG interpretation in a case presentation format. The book begins with the basic principles of electrocardiography and provides comprehensive tables listing differential diagnoses of all the major ECG abnormalities. The 50 cases illustrated by large format ECG traces in colour have been chosen to cover a wide range of clinical scenarios in cardiology and more general medical practice. Precise answers and detailed discussion follow each question. Important areas each covered by a variety of cases include pacemakers, arrhythmias and myocardial infarction. There are also cases of rarer conditions, and those that illustrate possible important pitfalls in routine clinical practice.
This book takes a practical, thought provoking approach. It is a valuable resource for doctors, nurses, technicians and students wishing to extend or reinforce their knowledge of ECG interpretation, and in preparation for examinations.
…attractively printed and laid out…the real strength is the series of 50 case histories all illustrated with several ECG examples…to be recommended to anyone who would like to consolidate their practical and theoretical knowledge of ECG interpretation.
