From The CriticsReviewer: Pridhvi R Yelamanchili, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a thorough review of ECGs alongside common clinical presentations.
Purpose: The purpose is to integrate ECG assessment into the context of the clinical presentation.
Audience: It is written for students, physicians in training, midlevel practitioners, and clinicians who will interpret ECGs in everyday patient care.
Features: The book includes a broad range of ECGs presented in the context of common cardiac symptom presentations such as chest pain, shortness of breath, syncope, and palpitations. There is also a discussion of ECGs in patients undergoing electrophysiology studies, ablation, pacemakers, and patients with congenital heart disease. The authors use 12-lead ECGs accompanied by magnifications of abnormal findings on the adjacent page for all the pathologies discussed, which is very useful for readers. There is a test book the author suggests which can be used for ECG interpretation practice.
Assessment: This is a quick read and is unique in its approach to reviewing ECGs associated with common symptom presentations. This makes it a good book not only for cardiologists, but also for other clinicians who wish to interpret their patients' ECGs. Tables of etiologies and concise management discussions provide a quick review of the associated diagnoses.
