Mastery of ECG interpretation is achieved not only by pattern recognition, but equally importantly, by a clear, practical understanding of how electricity moves through the heart and how disruption of that movement manifests itself via ECG tracings. ECGs for Beginners, written by one of the world's most respected electrophysiologists with over 40 years experience of training clinicians, will provide cardiology and electrophysiology trainees with an easy to follow, step-by-step guide to the topic, thus enabling them to both understand and interpret ECG readings in order to to best manage their patients. Packed with over 250 high-quality ECG tracings, as well as management algorithms and key points throughout, every chapter also contains self-assessment questions, allowing the reader to test themselves on what they've just learnt. All kinds of arrhythmias will be covered, as well as morphological abnormalities such as atrial and ventricular problems. Importantly, normal ECG readings will be presented alongside abnormal readings, to best demonstrate how and why abnormalities occur. ECGs for Beginners is an essential purchase for all cardiology and electrophysiology trainees, as well as being a handy refresher guide for the experienced physician.

Mastery of ECG interpretation is achieved by a combination of pattern recognition and an understanding of how electricity moves through the heart, and how disruption of that movement manifests via ECG tracings. ECGs for Beginners, written by one of the world’s most respected electrophysiologists with over 40 years’ experience training clinicians, provides cardiology and electrophysiology trainees with an easy to follow, step-by-step guide to understanding and interpreting ECG readings in order to best manage their patients. All kinds of arrhythmias covered, as well as morphological abnormalities such as atrial and ventricular problems. Importantly, normal ECG readings are presented alongside abnormal readings, to best demonstrate how and why abnormalities occur and especially how important it is to interpret the ECG according to the clinical setting of each patient. ECGs for Beginners is an essential purchase for all cardiology and electrophysiology trainees, as well as being a handy refresher guide for the experienced physician. Highlights of the book: • Over 250 high-quality ECG traces of both normal and abnormal conditions, • Step-by-step practical guidance as to how best to interpret ECGs, including pitfalls, • Key points and management algorithms distill essential information, • Each chapter includes a self-assessment section allowing trainees to test their learning.
