Text Atlas of Practical Electrocardiography A Basic Guide to ECG Interpretation

Description

It’s important to recall that the ECG should never be used as a replacement for clinical assessment: the tracings must first be analyzed in light of the clinical findings, described, and then used to formulate a diagnosis. How
many patients have been diagnosed with ischemia solely on the bases of T wave inversion or nonspecific repolarization changes! This is what motivated me to create a concise text-atlas of electrocardiography based on no less than 30 years of experience as a hospital cardiologist, many of which were spent in frontier-hospitals, where clinicians find themselves face-to-face with a dismayingly complex array of major cardiac events in all of their various guises.
