Reading an ECG is not an easy task and the interpretation of the data can vary from one person to another. There are a host of ECG books on the market which give simplistic advice, but very few which offer the necessary content for a clinical textbook on the subject - namely, illustrations, case studies and a concise but detailed explanation of ECGs when applied to the various circumstances of abnormal heart conditions. The use of electrocardiography has now become commonplace when diagnosing cardiac problems. This book deals with all known heart conditions, but in particular there are valuable chapters on stress and ambulatory electrocardiography, pacemakers, conduction defects, pre-arrest arrhythmias and cardiac resuscitation, following guidelines laid down by the British and European Resuscitation Council. It is primarily intended for postgraduate students and clinicians in practice, but students who intend to pursue further study in cardiology will also find it very useful.
