For a busy clinician in the Emergency Department, the ability to spot a lethal cardiac condition is critical. "Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine" fills a gap in ECG training in an easy-to-use, highly visual format. ECG patterns, gathered from patient records and from the files of physicians at the Harvard-affiliated hospitals, represent the range of pathologies that hospitalists, internal medicine physicians, family medicine physicians, and emergency medicine physicians must recognize. The format of "Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine" is to first show an ECG in its native state to give you the chance to recognize and interpret salient features. The page can then be flipped to look at the same ECG with abnormal patterns enlarged, highlighted in color, and described in brief text. The ECGs are presented with and without annotations so you can test your diagnostic skills.


"This book uses a unique algorithm format to provide a general approach to ECG interpretation. It is laid out in sections of dysrhythmias with a concise explanation, followed by illustrations of exactly what the authors have described." "An excellent, unique approach to an old topic! Needs to be in every emergency department physician resource room for handy reference!" - Doody's Book Review Anna L. Jarrett, PhD, ACNP-ACNS,(University of Arkansas)
