Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Becky S Walters, RN, MSN, FNP-BC, CWCN (Purdue University School of Nursing)
Description: This guide, packed with the necessary tools to quickly interpret ECGs, is so clear, concise, and compact that it will fit into your pocket.
Purpose: The author succeeds at providing a quick and easy reference to ECG interpretation that is conveniently portable.
Audience: The identified target audience of both novice and experienced ECG readers includes medical students, clinicians, nurses, and allied health professionals. The author is an associate professor of medicine, fellow of the American College of Cardiology, and fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society.
Features: The book opens with the basic fundamentals of electrocardiography. Subsequent chapters are devoted to interpreting ECG findings with algorithms and identification of abnormal readings. There are numerous rhythm strip illustrations, a section on electrolyte abnormalities and syndromes, a detailed table of contents and index, and a handy ECG ruler on the back cover. The compact nature of the book is indeed a valuable feature for portability, but the small font size may make it more challenging to read.
Assessment: This is a quality, compact reference for any healthcare provider who is interested in interpreting ECGs.
