The ECG Made Easy, 6th edition

This highly respected book is a simple, readable guide to the accurate identification and interpretation of normal and abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) patterns for medical students, nurses and junior doctors. The emphasis throughout is on the straightforward practical application of the ECG. It will prove useful to all medical and health care staff who require clear, basic knowledge about the ECG.
The ECG Made Easy has for some time been the pocket reference for junior doctors... good starter, but you may need some help. One of the most popular introductory texts on this subject. All the basic concepts for understanding this topic are included, though there could be more emphasis on possible areas of confusion; such as the different between leads and wires . This book also suffers from only being pocket sized and having pocket sized tracings, and on pages that depict limb and chest leads the layout could be improved to show that they are separate groups. For a newcomer to this subject you may not find it all that easy, as the explanations may need some practical demonstrations from an accomplished teacher with topics such as the cardiac axis. However this book does avoid the jargon and physiology that can be off putting in most other introductory texts. If this book leaves you with further questions, you would probably also need and indeed benefit from the author s two other titles The ECG in Practice and 100 ECG Problems . This would enable you to improve your skills of interpretation, and the three titles bought over time would provide an adequate inexpensive reference shelf for most health care workers.
