This edition of Pocket Guide to ECGs explains how to interpret common normal and abnormal ECGs, and is an essential guide for medical students, hospital residents, nursing staff, physicians and general practitioners. The book adopts a systematic, analytical approach that is easy to understand and simple to use, drawing on a collection of illustrated ECGs to enhance the text. It reveals the main concepts on how to identify the various cardiac conditions, allowing practitioners to quickly identify what they see in the field and/or clinical setting. The text is also a useful tool in the classroom for the students to quickly look up key information. The concise and clear presentation of diagnostic criteria for each ECG subject is a great aspect of this handbook. This text is specifically made for a quick reference of the basic information required in order to interpret ECGs. It includes a new section on advances and developments in ECG practice that have occurred since the book was originally published.
