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

Greater understanding of ECG interpretation will lead to better patient care everywhere. This book is designed to dynamically teach healthcare professionals how to interpret electrocardiograms (ECGs). It presents the information similar to how an instructor might deliver it in the classroom, with lots of illustrations, solid practical content, questions to prompt critical thinking, case presentations, and plentiful practice ECG tracings to promote the application of skills. One of the first things readers will notice about this text is it is more of a “how-to book” than a “theoretical book.” Although there is plenty of detail, the coverage is to the point, telling you and then showing you what you need to know.
