Περιγραφή

Emergency and critical care providers are often challenged by patients with acute cardiorespiratory symptoms and abnormal electrocardiograms. Critical Cases in Electrocardiography emphasizes clinically-relevant topics, focusing squarely on situations where interpretation of the ECG contributes to clinical decision-making. This atlas is unique, in that it includes numerous examples of ECG misses – cases where the computer algorithm or the clinicians (or both) got the diagnosis wrong. While many textbooks include only smaller, black and white ECG tracings, which do not resemble actual clinical practice, this volume is designed to encourage self-study of the ECG by including full-page tracings in their natural color. The book focuses on dont miss ECG tracings in order to help readers advance beyond the stage of competent electrocardiographer. Anatomic and electrophysiologic correlations are emphasized throughout the work, helping readers appreciate the anatomic and electrical origins of the ECG abnormalities, rather than relying solely on pattern memorization.

  • The atlas format encourages quick review of clinical cases, focusing on the ECG tracings
  • Includes real-life examples of easy-to-miss presentations of common emergencies, teaching advanced readers to diagnose critical emergencies
  • Anatomic and electrophysiologic correlations are emphasized throughout, helping readers appreciate the anatomic and electrical origins of the ECG abnormalities rather than relying solely on pattern memorization
