This is the first ECG book on the market that addresses the specific needs of those in the exercise science field. Because it's written for clinical exercise physiologists and exercise specialists, it enables readers to tailor stress tests and cardiac rehabilitation programs to meet the needs of their patients. Beginning with an introduction to basic concepts and measurements, the book explores rhythm and atrioventricular blocks followed by discussions of such key topics as infarct, hypertrophy, axis, and conduction defects. The text includes exercise-related case studies and incorporates ACSM guidelines, so it can be used for certification candidates.
Clinical vignettes beginning each chapter underscore why the chapter is essential for clinical exercise physiologists and exercise science students.
Clinical vignettes revisited at the end of the chapter demonstrate how to apply new knowledge to effectively interpret ECG's and work with clients.
KSA icons alert readers to ACSM exam topics
Actual patient cardiograms help students review and practice their ECG interpretation skills.
Figures are mostly derived from real patients' ECGs and have been honed over several years of use in teaching electrocardiography in an exercise science program
Quizzes at the end of each chapter help readers assess their understanding of key concepts.
Review chapter provides more opportunities to test knowledge and also sets forth a simple, effective system for performing thorough ECG readings.
