For forty years The ECG Made Easy has been regarded as the best introductory guide to the ECG, with sales of over half a million copies as well as being translated into a dozen languages. Hailed by the British Medical Journal as a "medical classic", it has been a favourite of generations of medical and health care staff who require clear, basic knowledge about the ECG. This famous book encourages the reader to accept that the ECG is easy to understand and that its use is just a natural extension of taking the patient's history and performing a physical examination. It directs users of the electrocardiogram to straightforward and accurate identification of normal and abnormal ECG patterns. A practical and highly informative guide to a difficult subject. Provides a full understanding of the ECG in the diagnosis and management of abnormal cardiac rhythms. Emphasises the role of the full 12 lead ECG with realistic reproduction of recordings. The unique page size allows presentation of all 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Restructured into two clear sections, the first 'The Basics' explains the ECG in the simplest possible terms. The new second section, 'Making the most of the ECG', has separate chapters on the ECG patterns that might be seen in healthy subjects and in patients presenting with chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations or syncope.

This text book was written to be an introduction to interpretation of electrocardiography, not as a complicated text book. The purpose of this book is to present the often complicated explanation of electrocardiography in a simple and easy to read manner. Nurses, medical students and paramedics will find this book very beneficial. Each rhythm is explained in a simple manner which is accompanied by diagrams and rhythm strips to help simplify the concepts. There are very few books that approach this subject in a simplified way which allows the reader to gain a rapid understanding of the subject. It is certain that this publication will satisfy the need for such a book. This third edition has addressed in more depth the recent changes associated with acute coronary syndrome. The last chapter now includes information on how training affects the heart, the changes that are often associated with the athlete's heart. The reader is encouraged to take an active role in the learning process. Having access to rhythm strips and 12 lead electrocardiographs will help the reader develop the skills more quickly. Keeping a journal of interesting rhythm strips will assist with developing these essential interpretation skills. Exercises have been included at the end of each chapter in this new edition, which encourages the reader to test themselves. The main concept expressed in this book is to encourage the reader to develop 'P wave consciousness' - being always on the lookout to find the presence of a P wave. If the P wave is absent then the reader is encouraged to find the reason for its absence.
