This guide to the proper use of the ECG in diagnosing acute myocardial infarction puts the combined experience of international authorities at your fingertips for immediate use. In The 12 Lead ECG in ST Elevation MI: A Practical Approach for Clinicians, Drs. Bay_s de Luna, Fiol-Sala and Antman supply the practical, specific information you need to determine which patients with ACS are showing ST elevation.To facilitate correct diagnosis and guide management, the authors use a consistent sequence to explain the ECG abnormalities for each site of coronary occlusion. A schematic of the coronary tree illustrates the point of occlusion. The second part of the book contains a self-assessment section with a series of 15 cases, each of which includes one or more 12-lead ECGs for analysis. These valuable examples help you prepare for on-the-spot interpretation in the emergency department or intensive care unit.
