EKG Plain and Simple
EKG Plain and Simplecovers the broad spectrum of electrocardiography in a conversational style. This text has taught thousands the art and science of EKG foundations and applications. No prior knowledge about the heart is required, as the book progresses from simple to more advanced concepts. Part I contains the basic building blocks of knowledge: waves, complexes, lead morphology and rhythms. Part II moves into more complex topics with information covering 12-lead EKGs, axis, hypertrophy, myocardial infarction and pacemakers.
