Clinical Electrocardiography: PreTest Self-assessment and Review
McGraw-Hill, Health Professions Division/PreTest Series, 1994 - Medical - 427 pages
Electrocardiograms are read by many health professionals, but it is critical that they be interpreted and understood by cardiologists. A four-hour session of the cardiology board exam is devoted to interpreting ECGs, and they are featured extensively in the anaesthesiology and critical care boards as well. In November 1993, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) begins recertification exams for its members. The ability to interpret ECGs is seen as being so crucial that the ACC has begun to offer review courses on the subject.
