The ECG Workbook, 4th Edition

By Angela Rowlands, Dr Andrew Sargent
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 is now a chapter on Wolff Parkinson White syndrome in this fourth edition, which in addition to the chapters on Hemiblocks, Bi Fascicular and Tri Fascicular Blocks and Paced Rhythms in the last edition make The ECG Workbook a very comprehensive resource for healthcare professionals and students. All the additional chapters adhere to the principles followed set out in the first editions: 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 Wolff Parkinson White syndrome A systematic approach to ECG interpretation
