This is the first ECG book on the market that addresses the specific needs of those in the exercise science field. Because it's written for clinical exercise physiologists and exercise specialists, it enables readers to tailor stress tests and cardiac rehabilitation programs to meet the needs of their patients. Beginning with an introduction to basic concepts and measurements, the book explores rhythm and atrioventricular blocks followed by discussions of such key topics as infarct, hypertrophy, axis, and conduction defects. The text includes exercise-related case studies and incorporates ACSM guidelines, so it can be used for certification candidates.

    Love it

    About time that someone came out with an EKG book like this! It is understandable for new students, but has everything. Have not tried the website yet, but heard it is great too. Don't think I will need another one after this (everyone who buys Dubin seems to want a "better" book later on).

    I feel confident reading ECGs after using this book.

    This is actually my second ECG book. The first one - it was a good book and I don't want to knock on them, so no names - had a perfect example or two of everything but when I got up to the floors and saw real ECGs I was clueless. This book is great because it uses lots of real examples and points out in simple language many important but subtle points. A guy from the Stress Testing Lab tipped me off to this book. I am not an Exercise Physiologist, but I would recommend this book to anyone interested in really learning ECG.

    Great book!

    The approach is great. Everything that you need to know about EKG is there and it is explained in a very clear way. You also get a code for the website with the book. The website has some great review materials and quizzes. I have read Dubin, but this book is much better.

    great book for exercise physiologists

    In addition to all of the usual ECG stuff this book has very pertinent info specific to exercise physiology. I found the book very helpful and was able to get my confidence up by taking the practice quizzes in the book and on the website. I feel like I really know ECG after using this book.

    Makes a Hard Subject Easy to Learn

    I found the writing very clear and easy to follow. I think I learned a huge amount about EKGs from this book and I would highly recommend it. The chapter with the self-test was key in getting everything straight. I would have liked to see come color in the book - it is all in black and white, but other than that I think it is really good. The price is not bad either.

    Love this book

    Learning EKG seemed like a big challenge. I was totally clueless and more than a little intimidated by the subject and did not have a lot of time to get up to speed. After reading this book cover to cover (just read the chapters in order from start to finish and do the quizzes) I have really become comfortable with the basic principles. I am going to go through it again and have a look at the website that comes with the book, but after reading this book cover to cover once I feel very comfortable with EKG.
