Now in its revised Second Edition, this popular self-instructional manual has helped medical students gain a practical working knowledge of electrocardiography and has proven useful to house officers, technicians, nurses, and coronary care unit personnel who wish to improve their interpretive skills. Using a systematic format of programmed information and exercises, the handbook offers an in-depth understanding of patterns, rather than requiring memorization of certain idealized ECGs. The handbook's vector approach also enables the reader to view electrocardiograms in terms of posterior versus anterior and leftward versus rightward forces. This approach increases accuracy in interpreting electrocardiograms for a wide variety of specific disorders, from atrial abnormalities to ventricular disturbances.The content of the previous edition has been updated and new topics, such as the torsade de pointes form of ventricular tachycardia, have been added. The Second Edition also includes review questions and answers that aid the reader in study and self-evaluation.
