Covering all aspects of electrocardiography, this comprehensive resource helps readers picture the mechanisms of arrhythmias, their ECG patterns, and the options immediately available - as well as those available for a cure. Illustrations and descriptions help the reader visualize and retain knowledge on the mechanisms of cardiac rhythms to pave the way for a systematic approach to ECG recognition and emergency response. This new, eighth edition guarantees the best possible patient outcomes by providing complete coverage - from step-by-step instruction to the more advanced concepts of ECG monitoring. New chapters have been added on The Athlete's ECG, In-Hospital Ischemia Monitoring, and Brugada Syndrome. Clear, consistent writing and organization are featured throughout. The mechanisms of cardiac rhythms are explained and illustrated for easier comprehension. Knowledge builds logically from mechanisms of arrhythmias, axis, and normal rhythms, to arrhythmia recognition. Pediatric implications are provided for appropriate arrhythmias. Differential diagnoses for arrhythmias are provided to cover all the possibilities of the patient's clinical status. A consulting board made up of internationally known experts in ECG recognition assures the content is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Revised and updated chapters include new information regarding mechanisms, risks, diagnosis, therapy, and cures - changing the way patients with arrhythmias and myocardial infarction are managed. The chapter on Congenital Long QT syndrome has been thoroughly revised with new information on the recognition of this inherited disease as well as its precipitating circumstances. The Acquired Long QT syndrome chapter has been thoroughly revised to describe this life-threatening arrhythmia and list all of the non-cardiac drugs that are now known to cause it. The Atrial Flutter chapter has been completely revised to incorporate new diagnostic techniques and improvements in acute and long-term management. A new chapter on Brugada Syndrome (Chapter 27) teaches early identification and treatment of those at risk of sudden death from this dangerous ECG pattern. A new Athlete's ECG chapter (Chapter 20) describes how intense physical training is associated with ECG patterns that are a consequence of physiologic adaptations of the heart. A new chapter on In-Hospital Ischemia Monitoring (Chapter 31) measures the patient's response to therapy and provides an important determinant for survival from myocardial infarction and ischemia.

For forty years The ECG Made Easy has been regarded as the best introductory guide to the ECG, with sales of over half a million copies as well as being translated into a dozen languages. Hailed by the British Medical Journal as a "medical classic", it has been a favourite of generations of medical and health care staff who require clear, basic knowledge about the ECG. This famous book encourages the reader to accept that the ECG is easy to understand and that its use is just a natural extension of taking the patient’s history and performing a physical examination. It directs users of the electrocardiogram to straightforward and accurate identification of normal and abnormal ECG patterns. A practical and highly informative guide to a difficult subject. Provides a full understanding of the ECG in the diagnosis and management of abnormal cardiac rhythms. Emphasises the role of the full 12 lead ECG with realistic reproduction of recordings. The unique page size allows presentation of all 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Restructured into two clear sections, the first ‘The Basics’ explains the ECG in the simplest possible terms. The new second section, ‘Making the most of the ECG’, has separate chapters on the ECG patterns that might be seen in healthy subjects and in patients presenting with chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations or syncope.
