About this book
This book elucidates the process of reading electrocardiograms (ECGs) in children. It focuses on the presentation of congenital and acquired heart diseases as interpreted through the ECG and is supported by an extensive illustration program derived from electronically stored ECGs. The book also features lists and algorithms that can be applied when noticing any pathology within the ECG, thereby allowing these findings to be traced to potential differential diagnoses. Topics include the normal electrocardiogram; cellular electrophysiology; cardiac conduction; heart rate and rhythm disturbances; atrioventricular conduction abnormalities; and cardiac ischemia, injury, and infarction. Pediatric Electrocardiography: An Algorithmic Approach to Interpretation is a valuable resource for pediatricians, family medicine physicians, cardiologists, residents, and medical students.
