Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
