The authors aim to provide the busy doctor with a comprehensive review of ECG interpretation in a case presentation format. The book begins with the basic principles of electrocardiography and provides comprehensive tables listing the differential diagnoses of the various ECG abnormalities. The 50 cases have been chosen to cover a wide range of clinical scenarios in cardiology and medical practice. Precise answers and detailed 'discussion follow each question. Important areas covered by a variety of cases include pacemakers, arrhythmias and myocardial infarction. Also included are cases of rarer conditions, as well as cases that illustrate possible important pitfalls in routine clinical practice. This book will be an invaluable resource for all doctors studying for higher examinations and for doctors, technicians and nurses wishing to expand their knowledge of ECG interpretation.
