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.

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9780977579945

Category: Arrhythmia

Page: 354

View: 5484

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.

Quick and convenient, this resource provides a clinical overview of a wide variety of diseases and disorders that affect the cardiovascular system and lungs and the physical therapy management of patients with them. It integrates key concepts of pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnostic tests and laboratory information and findings with clinically important medical and surgical interventions and pharmacologic therapies — then applies the material to physical therapy evaluation and treatment. This edition adds an introductory chapter on the oxygen transport pathway, the effects of dysfunction along the pathway, and the implications for physical therapy. Offers a complete overview including basic cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology, the pathophysiology of commonly encountered cardiac and pulmonary disorders, diagnostic tests and procedures, therapeutic interventions, pharmacology, physical therapy evaluation and treatment, and clinical laboratory values and profiles. Uses a bulleted format to make finding information quick and easy. Lists the latest drugs used for the treatment of cardiopulmonary disorders. Includes information on laboratory medicine and pediatrics to help you apply cardiopulmonary principles to practice. Follows the oxygen transport pathway — the delivery, uptake and, extrication of oxygen as it actually functions in a clinical setting — providing a logical framework for understanding cardiopulmonary concepts. Explains the implications of defects in the pathway — essential considerations for clinical practice. Includes a comprehensive listing of common cardiopulmonary diseases, as well as a number of other diseases that are associated with cardiopulmonary dysfunction. Provides new and updated illustrations that depict common pathologies such as the pathophysiology of left ventricular diastolic and systolic dysfunction, volume versus pressure overload, and dilated versus hypertrophies versus restrictive cardiomyophathies. Includes descriptions of important interventions such as lung volume reduction surgery and lung transplantation. Adds a new section on simple anthropometric measurements for determining obesity, with information on this demographic trend and how it impacts assessment.
