Basic and Bedside Electrocardiography is the first book to integrate the basics of ECG interpretation with the most recent clinical guidelines for treating patients with ECG abnormalities. Each concise, bulleted chapter discusses a disease state, gives many tracings as examples, provides clear illustrations of pathophysiology, and offers guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of specific entities.

More than 600 illustrations aid readers in recognizing commonly encountered ECG abnormalities. Diagrammatic illustrations at the end of most chapters summarize the different ECG abnormalities discussed, to help readers recognize the different arrhythmias more easily. An appendix provides quick-reference information on commonly used intravenous agents.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Emanuel D Chryssos, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This uniquely designed book focuses on describing the pathological basis of electrocardiography as it applies to clinical topics rather than describing the background and physiology of electrocardiography.
Purpose: It is an introduction to electrocardiography for multiple levels of healthcare providers.
Audience: The intended audience includes healthcare providers of all levels, such as allied health professionals, medical students, physicians in training, and practicing clinicians.
Features: Six chapters devoted to the basic foundations of electrocardiography; anatomy, electrophysiology, and determining electrical axis. Remaining chapters discuss important topics including conduction defects, tachycardias, acute coronary syndromes, and cardiac pacemakers. The excellent schematic diagrams make the concepts much easier to understand. Detailed explanations of the important take-home points on the electrocardiograms used as examples are provided, with good illustration and annotations to clarify.
Assessment: This is a well done book on a difficult topic. The writing style makes it an easy read. In addition, there are many nicely annotated illustrations. This is a useful addition to the library of anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of electrocardiography.
