This practical “how-to” manual for interpreting electrograms and understanding how they relate to the more easily understood/obtained electrocardiogram (ECG) is designed to be used in electrophysiology laboratories and during preparation for certification tests. Clear enough to be understood by the novice, this inexpensive paperback is suitable for use by nurses and cardiovascular technicians working in the electrophysiology laboratory, as well as physicians who are interested in practical aspects of electrophysiology. Written by an award-winning teacher, it offers short, succinct chapters with bullet-point summaries and review questions to aid retention.

Although the electrocardiogram (ECG) is accepted as a standard clinical tool, electrograms (EGMs) recorded during electrophysiology studies are considered complex and confusing. In this brief paperback, an award-winning teacher provides the newcomer with an introductory guide to electrophysiology studies and the interpretation of electrograms.

Dr. Kusumoto divides the 15 chapters into two main sections, Electrophysiology Concepts and Specific Arrhythmias. First, he reviews the basics of electrophysiology testing and the diagnostic evaluation of general types of arrhythmias.
