Overview


In Electrocardiography Review, Dr. Rimmerman provides 150 carefully selected electrocardiogram case studies derived from his files at the Cleveland Clinic. The electrocardiograms have been chosen to help maximize learning and ABIM Certifying Exam preparation, emphasizing concepts that are not traditionally taught in electrocardiogram courses or on the hospital wards.  

Each case appears on a landscaped spread with the ECG on the left and a clinical history below it and includes electrocardiogram interpretation, key teaching points with clinically relevant commentary plus key clinical electrocardiogram diagnoses. There is also a section titled, Key Board Examination Coding Tips, with specific board exam diagnostic codes provided for each tracing as well as special chapters dedicated to Certifying Exam preparation and coding emphasizing keys to a passing score.
Lastly, for those needing concept reinforcement, there is a chapter outlining a recommended approach to electrocardiogram interpretation.
