Rapid ECG Interpretation

by M Gabriel Khan

The aim of this book is to focus on the rapid ECG interpretation. Interpreting an electrocardiogram (ECG) is not only one of the most important parts of diagnostics in cardiology but also one of the most difficult areas to teach. Owing to the abstract nature of the basic theoretical knowledge of the ECG, its scattered characteristics, and tedious and difficult-to-remember subject matter, teaching how to interpret ECGs is as difficult for teachers to teach as it is for students to learn. This book consists of 13 chapters, which include electrocardiogram basic concepts must be mastered, ECG interpretation, P wave abnormalities, bundle branch block, ST segment abnormalities, Q wave abnormalities and myocardial infarction, hypertrophy: atrial and ventricular, T wave abnormalities, electrical axis and fascicular block, miscellaneous conditions, arrhythmias, ECG board self-assessment quiz, new placements of limb lead provide superior quality ECGs. This book is useful for all physicians and healthcare providers during their training.
