Summary

This comprehensive text fully explains the use and implications of the electrocardiograph, an invaluable tool to assess cardiac function. It includes anatomy, basic electrophysiology, and analysis techniques. Each arrhythmia is carefully explained using a consistent approach that includes step-by-step analysis, practice, and self-assessment activities. The text is designed not only to teach students and clinicians how to interpret an ECG, but also to help them gain an appreciation for the clinical implications that an ECG can provide. This invaluable text helps students understand the importance of a logical approach to analyzing ECGs to provide optimal patient care.
