Expert Consult: Online and Print

Clinical Electrocardiography: A Simplified Approach, 7th Edition goes beyond the simple waveform analysis to present ECGs as they are used in hospital wards, outpatient clinics, emergency departments, and intensive care units—where the recognition of normal and abnormal patterns is only the starting point in patient care. With Dr. Goldberger's renowned ability to make complex material easy to understand, you'll quickly grasp the fundamentals of ECG interpretation and analysis.
