Annotated Atlas of Electrocardiography: A Guide to Confident Interpretation
In An Annotated Atlas of Electrocardiography: A Guide to Confident Interpretation, a master practitioner teaches, with 200 sample electrocardiograms, a simple but powerfully enlightening scientific approach to the art of EKG interpretation. Moving beyond the traditional practice of many books that stress technical skill and pattern recognition, Dr. Blake demonstrates in detail how tracings may be interpreted with consistency and confidence. By examining each tracing much like a patient in a physical examination, the author provides a full description of its findings and a detailed clinical explanation of how to interpret it.
Drawing on a lifetime of teaching and practicing EKG interpretation, Dr Blake demonstrates in An Annotated Atlas of Electrocardiography: A Guide to Confident Interpretation an orderly, confidence-inspiring method for arriving at a clinically useful interpretation. Published in both hardcover and paperback, this book will be used by medical students preparing for their exams, by practicing physicians who want to develop a scientifically-based approach to reading EKGs, and by all those who must record tracings, interpret them, or judge an interpretation written by someone else.
