The ECG Pocket Brain provides an organized approach to learn how to interpret ECGs. It is very useful as a quick reference. The lists and outlines, and summary on the back-inside cover make topics quick to find/remember. Highly recommended! --John Malaty, MD (Gainesville, Florida)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ECG pocket guide I've used February 25, 2001
By Will M
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent quick guide for thorough, systematic interpretations of ECGs. It's set up by the author to be easily used quickly if, say, you can't remember the criteria for one finding such as IVCD, LAHB, LVH. It is also easily used to guide you through a complete interpretation of a 12-lead from Rate/Rhythm onward. Inside both covers are little "quick guides" which lead you to the appropriate page in the booklet. I like the drawings which demonstrate key points.
It fits well in my shirt pocket even with my other stuff (about the size of a thin Sanford Guide) and I never go to work without it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Cluttered September 21, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is filled with an amazing amount of pertinent information; however, there is so much information packed into one small page that it's difficult to find information quickly. It feels cluttered and I find it very difficult to find things quickly because of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars money well spent August 22, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I monitor nuclear stress test and this book has been invaluable to me. I carry it in my pocket during my day and refer to it repeatedly throughout my day. This is such a wonderful compact resource that I have suggested my fellow co-workers buy their own copy. My copy is already dog-eared from all the use. So glad I bought this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creme de creme of ECG criteria July 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have ready many ECG books. I am a Cardio Tech student. Towards the tail end of the ECG course, I needed a book that clearly listed the criteria. This book does this job well.

Additionally, the author highlights the areas where why it's particularly important to make an accurate interpretation as the treatment would totally differ. An example is the treatment of MAT vs treatment of other Tachycardia.

The author has also done a good job in explaining the practical real life rules and when to not waste time. An example of such is the wide QRS rhythms where there author suggests suspect VT and most important if patient is hemodynamically unstable --> cardiovert. Only if patient is hemodynamically stable, then bother to do a detailed analysis to see whether the wide QRS is dues to aberrant beats. I am sure I will find these practical tips useful in the field.

Although in my job, I will most likely be doing ECG's, it's good that the author has given some practical tips on what the cardiologist will most likely be doing. Being by the side of the cardiologist, this should help me to understand what's going on. An example of this is during the tachycardia such as due to A. Flutter, performing carotid massage, and other procedure should lower the rate to identify the flutter from SVT.

All in all, I found this book to be different from most ECG books in the sense that it is like a ready reckoner of ECG interpretations, with lots of practical advise, and tips in a concise manner.
