The purpose of this text is to provide a reference work ticular attention has been paid to the diagnosis of covering basic electrocardiographic (EeG) patterns common rhythm problems. and diagnoses in a succinct and useful format. The The contents are directed at the primary physi book covers common adult EeG abnormalities and is cian in residency training or in practice, and a reason organized according to the type of abnormality, able background knowledge of terminology and basic rather than by specific disease or EeG diagnosis. De pathophysiology is assumed. Thus, certain topics, tailed lists of possible causes for various EeG patterns such as a detailed discussion of electrophysiology, are have been included wherever appropriate, and par- omitted for the sake of brevity. For a discussion of this 5 PREFACE 6 topic, complex or unusual rhythm patterns, and the have generally been selected as common examples of advanced techniques of deciphering unusual rhythms abnormalities, often as they occur in concert with and other uncommon abnormalities, the reader is re other abnormalities, rather than as pure "classic" ex ferred to other, more detailed, texts. The techniques of amples of a single abnormality. Therefore, in many performing an ECG are not covered here and the topic instances the examples given include commonly as of children's ECGs is treated only briefly. A number of sociated abnormalities in addition to the one under more detailed self-study and reference texts are avail discussion.

This book combines clear explanatory text with a wealth of images of ECG recordings in order to provide an accessible, up-to-date source of information and guide to interpretation for all professionals seeking to increase their expertise in electrocardiography. ECG results are presented and discussed for a wide range of conditions, including all forms of arrhythmia, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, bundle branch blocks, ischemic cardiomyopathy, atrial and ventricular enlargement, pericardial and myocardial diseases, diseases of the pulmonary circulation, and post pacemaker implantation. Normal ECG findings are fully described, and helpful introductory information is included on the principles of electrophysiology. The practically oriented text accompanying the ECG recordings covers both electrophysiological and clinical aspects. More than 100 years after its first use by Willem Einthoven, electrocardiography continues to be the first diagnostic tool applied in most cardiac patients. This text atlas provides a sound basis for the correct ECG interpretation essential for appropriate patient management.

This handy workbook covers the essential components of electrocardiography (ECG or EKG) and is useful in helping the reader identify a number of conditions, including arrhythmias, conduction blocks and heart attacks. Basic Electrocardiography reviews the fundamentals of this modality, from recognizing the normal tracing to specifics like identifying bundle branch blocks or ventricular fibrillation. This book will teach students not only the skills to interpret the electrocardiogram but also the language of electrocardiograms. Each chapter introduces basic themes, gives examples from actual patient tracings, and provides self-test electrocardiograms that will reinforce key concepts. Designed for the clerkship student, resident, or even the practicing professional who wants to brush up on EKG particulars, Basic Electrocardiography is a user-friendly guide to one of medicine's most useful tools.

Electrocardiography is the technique by which the electrical activities of the heart are studied. The spread of excitation through myocardium (the heart muscle) produces local electrical potential. This causes flow of small currents through the body which acts as a volume conductor. These small currents can be picked up from the surface of the body by using suitable electrodes and recorded in the form of electrocardiogram. This technique was discovered by Dutch physiologist, Einthoven Willem who is considered the father of ECG. Electrocardiograph is the instrument by which the electrical activities of the heart are recorded. Electrocardiogram is the record or the graphical registration of electrical activities of the heart, which occur prior to the onset of mechanical activities. It is the summed electrical activity of all the cardiac muscle fibers recorded from the surface of the body. The electrocardiogram is recorded in 12 leads. The ECG is useful in determining and diagnosing the following: -Heart rate -Heart rhythm -Abnormal electrical conduction -Poor blood flow to the heart muscle -Heart attack Coronary artery disease -Hypertrophy of heart chambers The electrocardiogram is recorded by placing series of electrodes on the surface of the body. These electrodes are called ECG leads and are connected to the ECG machine. The electrodes are fixed on the limbs. Usually right arm, left arm and left leg are chosen. The heart is said to be in the center of an imaginary equilateral triangle drawn by connecting the roots of these three limbs. This triangle is called Einthoven's triangle. The electrical potential generated from the heart appears simultaneously on the roots of these three limbs. The electrocardiogram has great application in cardiovascular physiology, and the heart health as a whole. This book, which can be read in less than 24 hours will furnish you with the skills you need to totally crush ECG and its interpretation. With it, you can successfully tackle NCLEX at first sitting! You will also learn the following: -physiologic anatomy of the heart -work output of the heart -oxygen utilization by the heart -relationship of the heart sounds to heart pumping -sinoatrial arrhythmia -atrioventricular blocks -atrial arrhythmia -ventricular arrhythmia So what are you waiting for? Download this, and let's tackle that NCLEX together!
