Rapid ECG Interpretation
With a step-by-step method for accurate interpretation of the ECG, this third edition of Rapid ECG Interpretation describes a systematic approach consistent with the changes in cardiology practice over the past decade. All diagnostic ECG criteria are given with relevant and instructive ECGs, providing a quick review or refresher for proficiency tests and for physicians preparing for the ECG section of the Cardiovascular Diseases Board Examination. This edition contains over 320 ECGs and instructive illustrations, including 81 new ECG tracings. Clear and concise 11-step methods are set out in a user-friendly synopsis format.

Practical Rapid ECG Interpretation Practice Book
Electrocardiography provides important information for the management of patients and it remains a relatively inexpensive but valuable diagnostic tool. Health care providers from diverse disciplines must interpret ECGs accurately and often in a timely manner. This book describes a 5-step method of ECG interpretation which provides a rapid and accurate way to diagnose electrocardiographic abnormalities. This resource provides detailed information on each of the above mentioned steps with ECG examples. Nevertheless, one important way to master ECG interpretation is to practice interpreting ECGs of patients with various diagnoses. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine
For a busy clinician in the Emergency Department, the ability to spot a lethal cardiac condition is critical. Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine fills a gap in ECG training in an easy-to-use, highly visual format. ECG patterns, gathered from patient records and from the files of physicians at the Harvard-affiliated hospitals, represent the range of pathologies that hospitalists, internal medicine physicians, family medicine physicians, and emergency medicine physicians must recognize. The format of Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine is to first show an ECG in its native state to give you the chance to recognize and interpret salient features. The page can then be flipped to look at the same ECG with abnormal patterns enlarged, highlighted in color, and described in brief text. The ECGs are presented with and without annotations so you can test your diagnostic skills
Rapid Review of ECG Interpretation
The authors aim to provide a comprehensive review of ECG interpretation in a case presentation format. The book begins with the basic principles of electrocardiography and provides comprehensive tables listing differential diagnoses of all the major ECG abnormalities. The 50 cases illustrated by large format ECG traces in colour have been chosen to cover a wide range of clinical scenarios in cardiology and more general medical practice. Precise answers and detailed discussion follow each question. Important areas each covered by a variety of cases include pacemakers, arrhythmias and myocardial infarction. There are also cases of rarer conditions, and those that illustrate possible important pitfalls in routine clinical practice. This book takes a practical, thought provoking approach. It is a valuable resource for doctors, nurses, technicians and students wishing to extend or reinforce their knowledge of ECG interpretation, and in preparation for examinations.
Rapid Review of ECG Interpretation in Small Animal Practice
In this concise and practical review, the authors recognize that among the range of cardiac investigations available to veterinarians, the standard electrocardiogram (ECG) is an indispensable, safe and inexpensive test in assessing dogs and cats with heart disease. Following discussion of the principles of electrocardiography, the book systematically explores the evaluation of the ECG—including determination of heart rate, measurement of intervals, derivation of the mean electrical axis, and criteria for atrial and ventricular enlargement or hypertrophy. It also examines intraventricular conduction disturbances and both normal and abnormal cardiac rhythms. Flow charts are provided to help users diagnose arrhythmias with confidence and 46 real cases and ECG tracings reinforce the principles and encourage discussion. Rapid Review of ECG Interpretation in Small Animal Practice is illustrated throughout and is of value to all veterinary practitioners, technicians, and students who wish to improve their skills in interpreting ECGs.
The Only EKG Book You ll Ever Need
This popular and practical text presents all the information clinicians need to use the EKG in everyday practice and interpret hypertrophy and enlargement, arrhythmias, conduction blocks, pre-excitation syndromes, and myocardial infarction. It is an ideal reference for medical students in ICM courses, house officers, or anyone directly involved in patient care, whether student, teacher, or practitioner. • Four-color design to make models, illustrations and tracings clearer • More questions for faculty test generator • Numerous new tracings • Expanded sections on subjects where new developments have made deeper understanding possible including atrial fibrillation, long QT syndrome, apical ballooning syndrome and more • 200 facsimiles of EKG strips • Clinical examples to help students get a sense of the clinical use of EKG • Numerous case studies • Online companion site with fully searchable text and image bank. Plus, an interactive question bank for students, EKG Image with explanation test bank and test generator for faculty
A Visual Guide to ECG Interpretation
Sharpen your ECG interpretation skills with this highly visual guide! The fully updated 2nd Edition of A Visual Guide to ECG Interpretation (formerly Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine: A Visual Guide) uses a combination of vivid illustrations, detailed annotations, clinical cases, and ECGs to help you easily recognize key ECG patterns, test your diagnostic skills, and quickly identify potentially lethal cardiac conditions. The easy-to-use format first depicts a specific ECG to help you recognize and interpret significant features. On the following page, abnormal patterns are enlarged, highlighted in color, and briefly described. The ECGs are presented with and without annotations to better test your diagnostic skills. Throughout the book, detailed annotations, notes on underlying conditions, and discussions of abnormalities in a clinical context help demystify ECG interpretation. This popular visual guide is invaluable for all health care professionals who want to practice and improve their ECG interpretation skills.
