Summary

Greater understanding of ECG interpretation will lead to better patient care everywhere. This book is designed to dynamically teach healthcareprofessionals how to interpret electrocardiograms (ECGs).It presents the information similar to how an instructor might deliver it in the classroom, with lots of illustrations, solid practical content, questions to prompt critical thinking, case presentations, and plentiful practice ECG tracings to promote the application of skills. One of the first things readers will notice about this text is it is more of a "how-to book" than a "theoretical book." Although there is plenty of detail, the coverage is to the point, telling you and then showing you what you need to know.
