Pocket Tutor ECG Interpretation

by Simon James, Katharine Nelson

The aim of this book is to focus on the ECG interpretation. The ECG costs little, takes seconds to acquire and presents no risk to the patient, yet it provides reliable, reproducible, internationally understood information concerning the health of the human heart. This book will teach you the interpretation of ECGs from step one. Pocket Tutor ECG Interpretation starts with the anatomy and physiology of the heart, and how the ECG is constructed. It shows how these simple principles for understanding an ECG can then be applied when interpreting at the most complex level. Having covered these basics, the remainder of the book provides clinical examples of a broad range of ‘real-life’ ECG traces, each accompanied by a description and explanation on the facing page.
