Some extensive and clinically oriented guides of electrocardiography, such as Chou’s Electrocardiography in Clinical Practice  do not provide any chapters about the theoretical basis. It is thought that readers acquired this knowledge during their medical training. We have found it convenient to present some of the theory in the hope that it may enhance practical handling of the ECG. The special anatomic and pathophysiologic conditions are discussed in later chapters.
