This unique book shows ECGs as they really appear in everyday practice and not in the usual format as presented in textbooks. Each of the 100 traces is accompanied by a list of the main diagnostic features along with a full report of the ECG, noting any other clinical details that may be important. Boxes list the common causes of the abnormalities shown. Key features of the ECG are reproduced again using annotations to guide the reader. Thus the book provides in itself a collection of full 12-lead ECGs of a wide range of common clinical problems encountered in casualty. This collection of traces, updated for this Third Edition with new cases, will be invaluable to all involved in the diagnosis of the most commonly encountered ECG abnormalities.
