Summary

Checking a patient's heart condition early enough can be a life saving procedure. Now ambulances are equipped with ECG machines, this is standard monitoring in prehospital emergencies. ECG interpretation has therefore become a major part of emergency medical service (EMS) training. ECGs for Prehospital Emergency Care is written especially for EMS staff by leading emergency physicians who are also qualified in EMS and renowned teachers. It instructs on how to interpret the single lead ECG through to more complex cases, offering 200 examples of ECGs , and providing ample opportunity to self test with typical examples of conditions found in the prehospital situation. Additionally, a differential diagnosis chapter covers all the likely conditions that the prehospital health professional will encounter. With ECG interpretation now an important aspect of EMS training, this book will be an invaluable aid to all heath professionals working in this field.
