Description:

Highly Commended, BMA Medical Book Awards 2015

Interpreting an ECG correctly and working out what to do next can seem like a daunting task to the non-specialist, yet it is a skill that will be invaluable to any doctor, nurse, or paramedic when evaluating the condition of a patient.

This practical, easy-to-read and easy-to-remember guide to the ECG as a tool for diagnosis and management has been fully updated in its fourth edition to reflect the latest guidelines.

User’s Review:

“The book’s primary strength is its broad appeal. It is a great reference for medical students and interns or noncardiovascular subspecialists. Illustrations are plentiful, which is essential to recognizing ECG patterns.”
―Shawn Ragbir, MD for Doody’s Review Service

This manual is a new and welcomed entry in the genre of ECG education. For the absolute novice, I still think Dale Dubin’s Rapid Interpretation of EKG’s remains the most basic and helpful resource as evidenced by its 4++ star rating on Amazon with nearly 500 reviews (quite a lot for a book with so limited interest). However, Dubin’s text is not without its detractors who find the text too simplistic and its author not someone they wish to patronize (Dr Dubin went to jail for rather vile crimes). This book is not as simplistic as the Dubin manuscript, but still approachable for the novice. It contains more useful information than Ferry’s Basic Electrocardiography and more practical tips on reading ECGs than Conover’s Understanding Electrocardiography. I still think Marriott’s Practical Electrocardiography remains the best source for a physician to learn to read ECGs, but find it a bit too complicated for the novice. I have been involved in resident training for several decades and have examined many sources looking for good educational material. I think this book is written at a level which is both approachable to the nonphysician and yet has enough information to be of interest to the physician learner as well. Highly recommended as a quality text in an already crowded field.
