This book combines clear explanatory text with a wealth of images of ECG recordings in order to provide an accessible, up-to-date source of information and guide to interpretation for all professionals seeking to increase their expertise in electrocardiography. ECG results are presented and discussed for a wide range of conditions, including all forms of arrhythmia, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, bundle branch blocks, ischemic cardiomyopathy, atrial and ventricular enlargement, pericardial and myocardial diseases, diseases of the pulmonary circulation, and post pacemaker implantation. Normal ECG findings are fully described, and helpful introductory information is included on the principles of electrophysiology. The practically oriented text accompanying the ECG recordings covers both electrophysiological and clinical aspects.
More than 100 years after its first use by Willem Einthoven, electrocardiography continues to be the first diagnostic tool applied in most cardiac patients. This text atlas provides a sound basis for the correct ECG interpretation essential for appropriate patient management.
