The sixth edition of CLINICAL ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY: A SIMPLIFIED APPROACH is an internationally acclaimed introductory text on ECG analysis. Its simple-to-follow, yet comprehensive coverage presents the ECG as it is used in the emergency wards and intensive care units, as well as in the day-to-day management of inpatients and outpatients. It covers the basic principles of electrocardiography, describes the major abnormalities of heart rhythm and conduction, and contains a set of unknowns for review and self-assessment. This is an ideal text for students and a great review for practicing clinicians.
Incorporates practice questions throughout the book for review, self-test and understanding of key concepts. Provides separate chapters devoted to cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death, digitalis toxicity and limitations and uses of ECG for an in-depth study of these special and important topics. Presents simple, yet comprehensive coverage of information in an accessible writing style without compromising an in-depth coverage for beginning students or as a review for practicing clinicians.
Clinical Electrocardiography: A Simplified Approach, 7th Edition goes beyond the simple waveform analysis to present ECGs as they are used in hospital wards, outpatient clinics, emergency departments, and intensive care units-where the recognition of normal and abnormal patterns is only the starting point in patient care. With Dr. Goldberger's renowned ability to make complex material easy to understand, you'll quickly grasp the fundamentals of ECG interpretation and analysis.
