Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Anna L. Jarrett, PhD, ACNP-ACNS,(University of Arkansas)
Description: This book contains two sections that present 89 test ECG case scenarios, followed by the correct answers. The case scenarios use the history and physical examination, i.e., chief complaint, history of present illness, past medical history, etc., followed by clinical challenges and questions.
Purpose: The authors believe that the skills needed to successfully interpret the ECG are best acquired through constant repetition and the use of real world scenarios. The purpose of the book is to augment formal ECG interpretation with clinical pearls from the case scenarios - a worthy objective.
Audience: The book is written for EMS providers, but it is presented in the medical model format. The authors are credible authorities, but the lack of references for each of the case presentations limits the book's usefulness.
Features: The best part of the book is the collection of complex, difficult ECGs, which include most "zebras" in ECG interpretation.
Assessment: The usefulness of this book is severely limited by the omission of specific references for each answer. It is one of many ECG interpretation references.
