Reviewer: Carlos D Giraldo, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: Leading experts in adult and pediatric electrocardiography provide this timely update to the 2001 edition.
Purpose: This book provides a foundation to understand the genesis of diverse ECG patterns. The authors wanted to update readers on clinical advances in ST- elevation myocardial infarction, non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction, stress testing, QT intervals, and pacemaker. They also sought to update the area of pediatric arrhythmias.
Audience: Medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physicians in training, and practicing clinicians are the intended audience.
Features: The book thoroughly reviews adult and pediatric electrocardiography with an emphasis on the clinical manifestations of disease and the scientific basis for the electrocardiogram.
