Electrocardiography is a simple investigation to perform, but accurate interpretation can be challenging. This book takes a logical and systematic approach to ECG interpretation, beginning with the basics of normal variations and dealing in turn with atrial abnormalities, ventricular enlargement, ventricular conduction defects and ischemic heart disease. Extensively illustrated with ECG tracings that complement the text, this book provides clear and concise explanations of traditional concepts of electrocardiography and combines them with updates on the most recent developments in the field. In 22 clinical cases, Professor Bayés de Luna illustrates the principles of the book by integrating electrocardiographic features with clinical findings for a thorough and methodical approach to cardiac disease. Regular self-assessments allow readers to evaluate their understanding of the ECG and reinforce key concepts. This book is an ideal introduction to normal and abnormal ECG patterns. It is particularly valuable for medical students, residents / junior doctors and nurses who wish to broaden their skills in electrocardiography.

Over the last decade, there has been a tremendous improvement in our understanding of basic cardiac electrophysiology. Most introductory ECG books teach via pattern recognition and do not incorporate new pathophysiologic information. There is a great need for a simple book that teaches electrocardiography from a pathophysiologic basis. The proposed paperback book will be small format, concise, and 200-pages in length. It can be utilized as a reference - chapter by chapter or read throughout for an overview. Each chapter will feature ten questions that will provide a chapter review. Ten case studies will be highlighted at the end of the book that will integrate the multiple principles of electrocardiography.

This handy reference puts essential information at your fingertips! Pocket Reference for the 12-Lead ECG in Acute Coronary Syndromes, 3rd Edition helps you recognize ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) by introducing the 5-step approach to 12-lead analysis, making it faster and easier to learn 12-lead interpretation. Clear and concise, this book provides a simple, step-by-step approach along with tables, illustrations, and practice 12-lead ECGs to help you determine the likelihood of the presence of STEMI versus imposters or other causes of ST elevation. Written by two well-known educators, Tim Phalen, a paramedic, and Barbara J. Aehlert, a nurse, this pocket reference is available separately or as a package with its corresponding textbook, The 12-Lead ECG in Acute Coronary Syndromes Text, 3rd Edition. A clear, succinct, pocket-sized approach makes it easy to identify possible ST segment elevation myocardial infarction, determine the likelihood of the top STEMI imposters, and confidently categorize the ECG. Streamlined explanation of STEMI recognition includes an emphasis on STEMI imposters (non-infarct causes of ST elevation). Full-color illustrations clearly depict concepts and skills. Updated approach to ECG interpretation helps you determine STEMI versus other causes of ST elevation. NEW 5-step approach simplifies how to determine non-infarct causes of ST elevation, whether STEMI or STEMI imposter(s). NEW content in Suspecting STEMI chapter includes identifying the J-Point, determining ST elevation, Lead "Views," suspecting STEMI, and additional STEMI ECG changes. NEW content in STEMI Imposters chapter includes the top 5 STEMI imposters, ruling out the top STEMI imposters, and a 5-step analysis. NEW content in STEMI Imposters chapter includes the coronary artery anatomy, right ventricular infarction, posterior infarction, and obtaining additional leads.

Covering all aspects of electrocardiography, this comprehensive resource helps readers picture the mechanisms of arrhythmias, their ECG patterns, and the options immediately available - as well as those available for a cure. Illustrations and descriptions help the reader visualize and retain knowledge on the mechanisms of cardiac rhythms to pave the way for a systematic approach to ECG recognition and emergency response. This new, eighth edition guarantees the best possible patient outcomes by providing complete coverage - from step-by-step instruction to the more advanced concepts of ECG monitoring. New chapters have been added on The Athlete's ECG, In-Hospital Ischemia Monitoring, and Brugada Syndrome. Clear, consistent writing and organization are featured throughout. The mechanisms of cardiac rhythms are explained and illustrated for easier comprehension. Knowledge builds logically from mechanisms of arrhythmias, axis, and normal rhythms, to arrhythmia recognition. Pediatric implications are provided for appropriate arrhythmias. Differential diagnoses for arrhythmias are provided to cover all the possibilities of the patient's clinical status. A consulting board made up of internationally known experts in ECG recognition assures the content is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Revised and updated chapters include new information regarding mechanisms, risks, diagnosis, therapy, and cures - changing the way patients with arrhythmias and myocardial infarction are managed. The chapter on Congenital Long QT syndrome has been thoroughly revised with new information on the recognition of this inherited disease as well as its precipitating circumstances. The Acquired Long QT syndrome chapter has been thoroughly revised to describe this life-threatening arrhythmia and list all of the non-cardiac drugs that are now known to cause it. The Atrial Flutter chapter has been completely revised to incorporate new diagnostic techniques and improvements in acute and long-term management. A new chapter on Brugada Syndrome (Chapter 27) teaches early identification and treatment of those at risk of sudden death from this dangerous ECG pattern. A new Athlete's ECG chapter (Chapter 20) describes how intense physical training is associated with ECG patterns that are a consequence of physiologic adaptations of the heart. A new chapter on In-Hospital Ischemia Monitoring (Chapter 31) measures the patient's response to therapy and provides an important determinant for survival from myocardial infarction and ischemia.
