I have experienced many conversations with doctors and their staff related to a cardiac condition wherein I either did not understand what they were discussing or they failed to explain why the condition exists. This little guide totally enlightened me on how the heart functions, how basic ECG printouts are read, and what goes into the interpretation of those ECGs. This is an amazing pocket guide. Dr. Grauer's plain-spoken writing style is easy to comprehend regardless of the reader’s level of medical training. He has packed this book with easy-to-understand examples and illustrations. It is SO intriguing and easy to comprehend. It pulled me into turning pages to learn more.
What is the best thing about this book for me as a layperson? I can now better communicate with my cardiologist/staff and my medical health care team regarding my health. Invaluable! I will be purchasing another copy for my granddaughter who is considering a medical career. I am confident that this pocket guide will be excellent for her as a beginning student and give her a head start on understanding heart functions as well as the basic hows and whys of ECG interpretation.
I strongly recommend this book. It is well worth the price for invaluable information that will never become obsolete.
The content is so well explained and colorfully illustrated that a subject that that always taxed my brain to understand and remember has just been made so much clearer by the purchase and reading of this one book!
As a nurse and midwife, I would like to thank Dr Grauer for making one aspect of my professional life that much easier!
