About this book

Introduction

This book follows Starting to Read ECGs: The Basics by the same authorship and provides the beginner in electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation with a concise, practical and systematic guide to interpreting ECGs. The authors have included an introduction to the pediatric ECG and genetic cardiac conditions in attempt to deepen readers awareness of some of the broader clinical issues. Starting to Read ECGs: A Comprehensive Guide to Theory and Practice expands on some of the topics introduced in the first book, but offers a deeper perspective with more detailed background information and a variety of practical interpretation methods. It can be read as a standalone book for those who already possess some basic ECG knowledge or for those who have read the first book in the series and wish to consolidate and expand on what they have already read.

 

The book uses numerous diagrams, tables and practical examples to reinforce learning and summarize information succinctly, and will be an essential resource for medical students, junior doctors, and other health care professionals involved in the recording and interpretation of ECGs who wish to build their knowledge and confidence.
