For forty years The ECG Made Easy has been regarded as the best introductory guide to the ECG, with sales of over half a million copies as well as being translated into a dozen languages. Hailed by the British Medical Journal as a "medical classic", it has been a favourite of generations of medical and health care staff who require clear, basic knowledge about the ECG. This famous book encourages the reader to accept that the ECG is easy to understand and that its use is just a natural extension of taking the patient's history and performing a physical examination. It directs users of the electrocardiogram to straightforward and accurate identification of normal and abnormal ECG patterns. A practical and highly informative guide to a difficult subject. Provides a full understanding of the ECG in the diagnosis and management of abnormal cardiac rhythms. Emphasises the role of the full 12 lead ECG with realistic reproduction of recordings. The unique page size allows presentation of all 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Restructured into two clear sections, the first 'The Basics' explains the ECG in the simplest possible terms. The new second section, 'Making the most of the ECG', has separate chapters on the ECG patterns that might be seen in healthy subjects and in patients presenting with chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations or syncope.

This book offers 150 12-lead ECGs and rhythm strips, each with a clinical case history and question. The full ECG is reproduced and a study of it with the case history should be enough to give an answer. On the back the case is examined, with a description of the main features of the ECG along with a clinical interpretation and a "what to do" section. The cases are graded in difficulty. The unique page size allows presentation of all 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Several of the cases incorporate chest X-rays and coronary angiograms illustrating the appearances that are associated with various cardiac conditions. All the cases are graded in difficulty and are cross-referenced to the new editions of ECG Made Easy and ECG in Practice for further information. For this Fourth Edition over 30 new ECGs have been included, mainly to provide clearer examples, though the book deliberately retains some technically poor records to maintain a ’real-world’ perspective.

The ECG in Practice is a clinically-orientated book, showing how the electrocardiogram can help in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with symptoms suggesting cardiovascular disease. The underlying philosophy of this Sixth Edition remains that the ECG has to be interpreted in the light of the patient’s history and physical examination, thus the book is organised in chapters according to a patient’s symptoms. Clinically-orientated with a quick reference list of cardiovascular conditions Builds on the basic knowledge outlined in the classic ECG Made Easy Emphasises the individuality of every ECG and uses full 12-lead ECG recordings to provide a realistic reproduction of the clinical environment. The unique page size allows presentation of all 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Each chapter begins with a brief account of the relevant history and examination and ends with a short account of what might be done once the ECG has been interpreted. Now integrated throughout the book is text on electrophysiology and electrical devices. With pacemakers and implanted defibrillators now common among patients on general medical take, this material guides the reader in recognising their purpose and making a preliminary analysis of any malfunction.

Covering all aspects of electrocardiography, this comprehensive resource helps readers picture the mechanisms of arrhythmias, their ECG patterns, and the options immediately available - as well as those available for a cure. Illustrations and descriptions help the reader visualize and retain knowledge on the mechanisms of cardiac rhythms to pave the way for a systematic approach to ECG recognition and emergency response. This new, eighth edition guarantees the best possible patient outcomes by providing complete coverage - from step-by-step instruction to the more advanced concepts of ECG monitoring. New chapters have been added on The Athlete's ECG, In-Hospital Ischemia Monitoring, and Brugada Syndrome. Clear, consistent writing and organization are featured throughout. The mechanisms of cardiac rhythms are explained and illustrated for easier comprehension. Knowledge builds logically from mechanisms of arrhythmias, axis, and normal rhythms, to arrhythmia recognition. Pediatric implications are provided for appropriate arrhythmias. Differential diagnoses for arrhythmias are provided to cover all the possibilities of the patient's clinical status. A consulting board made up of internationally known experts in ECG recognition assures the content is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Revised and updated chapters include new information regarding mechanisms, risks, diagnosis, therapy, and cures - changing the way patients with arrhythmias and myocardial infarction are managed. The chapter on Congenital Long QT syndrome has been thoroughly revised with new information on the recognition of this inherited disease as well as its precipitating circumstances. The Acquired Long QT syndrome chapter has been thoroughly revised to describe this life-threatening arrhythmia and list all of the non-cardiac drugs that are now known to cause it. The Atrial Flutter chapter has been completely revised to incorporate new diagnostic techniques and improvements in acute and long-term management. A new chapter on Brugada Syndrome (Chapter 27) teaches early identification and treatment of those at risk of sudden death from this dangerous ECG pattern. A new Athlete's ECG chapter (Chapter 20) describes how intense physical training is associated with ECG patterns that are a consequence of physiologic adaptations of the heart. A new chapter on In-Hospital Ischemia Monitoring (Chapter 31) measures the patient's response to therapy and provides an important determinant for survival from myocardial infarction and ischemia.

In this concise and practical review, the authors recognize that among the range of cardiac investigations available to veterinarians, the standard electrocardiogram (ECG) is an indispensable, safe and inexpensive test in assessing dogs and cats with heart disease. Following discussion of the principles of electrocardiography, the book systematically explores the evaluation of the ECG—including determination of heart rate, measurement of intervals, derivation of the mean electrical axis, and criteria for atrial and ventricular enlargement or hypertrophy. It also examines intraventricular conduction disturbances and both normal and abnormal cardiac rhythms. Flow charts are provided to help users diagnose arrhythmias with confidence and 46 real cases and ECG tracings reinforce the principles and encourage discussion. Rapid Review of ECG Interpretation in Small Animal Practice is illustrated throughout and is of value to all veterinary practitioners, technicians, and students who wish to improve their skills in interpreting ECGs.

Many books on ECG interpretation use simulated ECG tracings. Most of the traces that you find in this book are from real people and of the quality that you will be expected to interpret from in practice. There are two new chapters in this third edition that add greatly to the usefulness of the book. There is now a chapter on Hemiblocks, Bi Fascicular and Tri Fascicular Blocks. Here the reader will see how what seems a complex diagnosis from an ECG is easily mastered by simply putting together two concepts learned in earlier chapters. The other new chapter is on Paced Rhythms to help those looking after patients who have pacemakers fitted as it is recognised that pacemakers may cause confusion when trying to interpret the ECG. Both these new chapters adhere to the principles followed set out the first edition: that the text should be accessible and relevant to all practitioners, regardless of their experience and that the text should always be supported with relevant exercises to reinforce learning. Contents include: Recording a readable electrocardiogram (ECG) The electrical conducting system of the heart A systematic approach to rhythm strip analysis Heart blocks Common Arrhythmias Ectopics and Extrasystoles The 12 lead ECG Axis deviation Ischaemia, injury and necrosis Sites of infarction Bundle branch blocks Chamber enlargement Hemiblocks, bifascicular blocks and trifascicular blocks Paced rhythms A systematic approach to ECG interpretation
