Overview

So you think you've grasped how to read and interpret ECGs? You can measure a QT interval, distinguish between VT and SVT and know when to refer a patient to a cardiologist?

Consolidate your knowledge by putting the principles into practice. Making Sense of the ECG: Cases for Self-Assessment presents everything you need to assess your ability to interpret ECGs accurately, perform differential diagnosis, and decide upon the most appropriate clinical management in each situation. The patients' history, examination and initial investigations are presented along with questions on the ECG interpretation. Detailed explanatory answers ensure this book solves your queries as well as providing practical guidance and essential revision.

* Each case is presented over 4 pages, setting out the clinical scenario and ECG, questions to prompt the reader, ECG analysis, and detailed answers and commentary providing the appropriate action to take
* User-friendly two-colour landscape design, fully illustrated with clear ECGs
* Written by the same respected authors and the perfect companion to Making Sense of the ECG, Third Edition, with useful cross-references allowing students to learn, revise and test themselves on all aspects of electrocardiography

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lior Shamai, DO, MPH (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a straight-to-the-point ECG self-assessment book based on clinical cases.
Purpose: It is designed as a companion to Making Sense of the ECG: A Hands-On Guide, 3rd edition, by the same authors (Hodder Arnold, 2008), but it also serves as an excellent source of ECG review material.
Audience: This book is appropriate for a broad audience including students, physicians in training, allied health professionals, and clinicians in practice.
Features: Each case is a crisp ECG followed by a clinical vignette and few questions. The answer pages include a complete ECG analysis and answers with additional commentary and suggested further reading (mostly from the primary book).
Assessment: This case-based, pocket-sized review is a good resource for either novices or practitioners looking to brush up on ECG reading. More clinically relevant than Rapid Interpretation of EKGs: An Interactive Course, 6th Edition, Dubin (Cover Publishing, 2000), and less demanding than The Complete Guide to ECGs: Comprehensive Study Guide to Improve ECG Interpretation Skills, 3rd edition, O'Keefe et al. (Jones and Bartlett, 2008), this book falls into the category of a nice next step for users who are not ECG experts.
