John R Hampton, DM, MA, DPhil, FRCP, FFPM, FESC, Professor of Cardiology, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UKReview:
"An excellent value for money pocketbook reference for anyone dealing with ECGs on a regular basis, whether rhythm strips or twelve leads. If you understand the cardiac axis and the chest lead progression then you should have no problem with understanding the contents. The chapters are sensibly grouped into; healthy people, palpitations and syncope, chest pain, breathlessness, and non cardiac influences; the main reasons why you would be recording an ECG. The wide range of examples often overlooked in other texts is bound to be useful as there are twenty examples of what can be normal , and this should help the reader from falling into the trap of diagnosing ECGs by what they look like. Also included are useful reminders on interpretation, and plenty of clinical information. The only drawback is that the recordings are all reduced in size, and the manner by which limb leads and chest leads are grouped on the page could be improved. Every cardiology ward or department should have a copy, as it would be a useful reference to both medical and nursing staff."Review on Anazon.co.uk
books are an excellent way to get to grips with any subject and would recommend this one." Medical Student, MAD Magazine (Medics and Dentists at Barts and the London), April 2003
general practitioner in particular needs a set of guidelines that will enable him or her to categorise his or her interpretation into: (1) normal tracings; (2) abnormal tracings in which he can identify with certainty specific abnormalities, for example left ventricular hypertrophy; (3) complicated abnormal tracings about which he is uncertain and which require specialist advice. Professor Hampton recognises this problem and attempts to overcome it by illustrating the extremes of the normal range and specific examples within the range."Update
