Summary

The sixth edition of CLINICAL ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY: A SIMPLIFIED APPROACH is an internationally acclaimed introductory text on ECG analysis. Its simple-to-follow, yet comprehensive coverage presents the ECG as it is used in the emergency wards and intensive care units, as well as in the day-to-day management of inpatients and outpatients. It covers the basic principles of electrocardiography, describes the major abnormalities of heart rhythm and conduction, and contains a set of unknowns for review and self-assessment. This is an ideal text for students and a great review for practicing clinicians. Incorporates practice questions throughout the book for review, self-test and understanding of key concepts. Provides separate chapters devoted to cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death, digitalis toxicity and limitations and uses of ECG for an in-depth study of these special and important topics. Presents simple, yet comprehensive coverage of information in an accessible writing style without compromising an in-depth coverage for beginning students or as a review for practicing clinicians.
