ECGs Simply - Third Edition
By Anne Evans-Murray ISBN 97809775799-4-5
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. The third edition contains an update of previous chapters and an additional chapters on some of the more rare conditions which were not covered in the first edition and an expansion of acute coronary syndrome.
Self evaluation questions have been added after each chapter, with answers at the back of the book.
Foreword by Murray Hart
It has been an honour to be clinical editor for this 3rd Edition of ECGs Simply. In this new edition, the content of several conditions and arrhythmias have been updated to include more in-depth explanations. The expanded theoretical knowledge is written in simple terminology allowing the reader to grasp the concepts. At the end of each chapter there are now more exercises of interpretation included for the reader to practice. Of particular interest is a new section on athletes’ heart which is an emerging cardiology disease entity of itself. Additional information on Long QT Interval Syndrome is also a feature of this revised edition.
I recommend this book with great confidence to any health professional requiring knowledge and skills in ECG interpretation. The writing style of this book mirrors Anne’s teaching style with her hallmark quality of explaining knowledge simply to enable understanding by the reader. This book is true to the title “ECGs Simply:”
Through the use of summaries, knowledge reminders, and practice exercises learning is reinforced chapter by chapter. ECG interpretation is a skill necessary across all clinical settings. The understanding of normal is outlined at the beginning of the book and abnormalities are progressively identified and explained.
The ability and skill to interpret an ECG is integral to patient outcomes and this book enables a reader to develop the skills required for clinical practice.
The author, Anne Evans-Murray, is a recognised expert on this subject and her passion for both teaching and writing makes this a “must have” ECG book.
