Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Highly Commended in the Cardiology category at the British Medical Association Book Awards 2009

This brand new title in the popular at a Glance seriescombines the science behind ECGs with how to use them to guide diagnosis and treatment. These key skills are fundamental for examination of the cardiovascular system and all medical students and specialist nurses are expected to be proficient at ECG interpretation.

The at a Glance approach provides a large number of clear diagrams and example ECGs alongside concise text, putting the ECGs into a clinical context, all in easy-to-absorb double-page sections.

Synopsis:

About the Author

“This is a refreshing new book in the already crowded field of ECG interpretation books.” (Doody's Reviews, May 2009)

Pre-publication reviews:

'Very thorough list of contents, broken down logically into sections....this is a very accessible book that is easy to read from cover to cover.' - Postgraduate Medical Student, Warwick University

'Once again I have been impressed by the level of input and comprehension into each chapter. I have no doubt that my medical students will be carrying around ECG at a Glance as much as they already carry around Medicine at a Glance! Could I be cheeky and ask for a copy or 2 when the book is finally printed! ' - Consultant Cardiologist & Electrophysiologist, James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough
