Concise and informative!
Rochet
This book is an excellent book for a resident or fellow... May be a little advanced for a most medical students..

I've continued to read other EKG interpretation books from there and I'm still learning more with each.

This book was recommended to me by a cardiologist to get better at ECG interpretation. There's lots of material, but as one commenter noted, don't use this book to learn ECG's---you should already know them---use this book to master them. There are 89 detailed practice ECG's along with pop quizzes and other review aids. This is the only book that I'm aware of that discusses using ECG's to interpret atrial septal defects, myxedema, sinoatrial blocks.

This book should be made mandatory for all medical school cardiology courses. It provides a step-wise progressive, repetitive method to first review or learn basic to more advanced EKG readings and then reinforce and build upon the basic information.

I've used this book for over ten years. I've suggested this book to many a recently graduated Resident in Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Family Medicine doc. I studied for the Boards with this book and it has NEVER failed.

After the first 100 or so EKGs (if you take the time to read the explanation) you can feel confident that your readings are solid. Keep the book by your desk to refer to it frequently.

I can't say enough about this book. Bravo to the authors!

This book is an excellent book for a resident or fellow... May be a little advanced for a most medical students.. but if you can master this book, ecgs are relatively easy.

Format: Paperback
The ECG criteria section is a nice section and the ECG examples are nicely explained. However, there is a tendency to "overcode" diagnoses and to overcall the diagnosis of electrical alternans. It is mainly helpful for the cardiology board exam.
Other useful ECG resources are: 1. Cardiology handbook for clinicians by Hanna, which has 2 very nice and well illustrated ECG interpretation sections and 55 ECG quizzes very well analyzed (in addition, this handbook contains clearly written and organized reviews of all clinical and procedural cardiology topics) 2.ECG SAP which has decently interpreted ECGs for the Board. The best book for in-depth ECG understanding and EP correlation is Chou's electrocardiography.

This book is a great learning tool if you're interested in EKGs. It gives some basics at the beginning and the rest of the book is interpreting EKGs in quiz format with several other quizzes of core concepts between EKGs. Very well done and effective as a teaching tool, but it is more for somebody wanting to refine their 12-L interpretation skills and not for a beginner. This was a good purchase and is one of my favourite medical books. I would highly recommend it.

excellent accumulation of ecgs and descriptive as well. great for cardio boards and must do for any cardio fellow. some explainations on coding may be different than acc / board standard but still worth it to go through at least once during residency / fellowship as it gives excellent overview of the topic. straight to the point vignettes.

A must have for boards review, some of the ekgs get mundane, yet the coding system is right from the boards which makes this book precious.

I've read many of the classic texts and taught basic ECG skills to RNs, MDs, and med students. This book is for those ready to take their skills to the next level. It is big, but is also the first text that I have seen that has it all. This book is designed for those who will eventually be taking their boards in cardiology and want to get ready early for the type of ECG questions on the exam and how to answer them correctly.
