Overview

This title provides ECG reference material in a fast and easy to use format. It is a wonderful reference for ECG data and provides samples of actual small animal ECG results with treatment recommendations. Easy to follow explanations of how to perform and interpret electrocardiograms are included. This presentation includes a brief review of physiology, technique and equipment, and interpretation of common electrocardiographic abnormalities. The friendly, non-textbook approach along with the use of helpful symbols, tips and examples, aid practitioners in learning to focus on the most elusive of features. A helpful drug formulary is provided in the appendix. The interpretation material is extremely helpful for the small animal practitioner, and the simple yet in-depth explanations are wonderful for the small animal technician. An ECG ruler which can be purchased separately allows the veterinarian to quickly determine heart rates and measure intervals easily and accurately. This is an excellent book for practitioners to keep by the ECG unit to insure that they do not miss even the slightest indication of cardiac irregularity. Published by Teton New Media in the USA and distributed by Manson Publishing outside of North America.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcella D Ridgway, VMD, MS, DACVIM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This concise, easy-to-use spiral-bound guide to feline and canine electrocardiography is written in an outline form for brevity and ease of accessing information quickly.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a convenient guide to obtaining and interpreting canine and feline ECG recordings in the day-to-day small animal practice setting. The intent of the authors is to supply a handbook which is very concise and easy to use.
Audience: It is written primarily for veterinarians in small animal practice and is also suited to veterinary students learning ECG instrument use and interpretation.
Features: This book contains two sections. Section I is a "how to" section that includes a brief review of basic cardiology and electrocardiography with clear, stepwise instruction on obtaining the ECG tracing and making basic measurements and calculations from the ECG tracing. Section I also details a simple 5-step approach for analyzing rhythm strips for arrhythmias. The second section contains examples of normal and abnormal ECG tracings and, for each example, has a brief definition and list of the ECG features, associated conditions, and recommended treatment for dogs and cats. Symbols, defined in the introduction, are used throughout the text to indicate the most important information or cautions. The appendix includes a formulary of most commonly used anti-arrhythmic drugs and a list of recommended textbook readings. These features make pertinent material very easy to access and understand, and thus enhance the practical usefulness of this book.
Assessment: In a continuing endeavor to encourage and facilitate frequent and appropriate utilization of electrocardiographic diagnostics in everyday practice, the authors have produced a winner in ECG for the small animal practitioner. This book is concise, written in short, clear statements, and provides simple, stepwise instructions to encourage even the most novice or "rusty" practitioner to utilize the powerful tool of ECG diagnostics in a day-to-day setting with confidence. The material has been trimmed down to the bare essentials and simplified for practical use. While it is not meant to replace more detailed texts, this book meets the need for a convenient, easy-to-use, simple guide to ECG diagnosis very well. It offers advantages over other books of this category in its brevity and easy-to-access outline form and step-by-step instructions. The small size of the book makes it convenient for storage with ECG equipment. The book opens flat for use, displaying all the information for a specific condition on two facing pages, including excellent examples of characteristic ECG tracings and recommended treatment.
