Book Description: Now in its Sixth Edition, this popular, practical text presents all the information clinicians need to use the EKG in everyday practice and interpret hypertrophy and enlargement, arrhythmias, conduction blocks, pre-excitation syndromes, and myocardial infarction. It is an ideal reference for medical students in ICM courses, house officers, or anyone directly involved in patient care, whether student, teacher, or practitioner. The book includes more than 200 facsimiles of EKG strips and numerous clinical cases. This edition features new and updated clinical cases, more clinically oriented discussions of EKG findings, and expanded coverage of important topics such as the long QT syndrome and sudden cardiac death. A companion Website will include the fully searchable text, an image bank, an interactive question bank, and an EKG image with explanation test bank.
