Format: Spiral-bound
This book tremendously expands on the content from prior ECG Pocket Brain versions - adding numerous figures and clarifying explanations. Material has been updated, with coverage of new items including Wellens' syndrome, DeWinter T waves, Takosubo cardiomyopathy, hypothermia, and more - as well as adding more depth to discussions of basic rhythms, chamber enlargement, and bundle branch block/hemiblocks. The section on acute MI/Ischemia alone encompasses 50 pages with pearls for localization of the infarct and determining the acutely occluded artery.
I would strongly recommend this book over other available EKG books. This is a stand alone EKG learning resource for medical students , Residents and fellows.
As always Dr. Grauer style makes ekg easy.

Ken Grauer is becoming widely known and respected amongst emergency doctors thanks to his many astute comments on ECG blogs.

I have every edition of the ECG Pocket Brain and it just keeps getting better. There is an amazing amount of practical information in a book small enough to carry in the pocket of your scrubs. (and having spiral binding is a stroke of genius for improving the longevity of the book) I have been recommending this book to those I work with for many years, both as an "on the floor" resource as well as for revising a specific point after a shift. If you combine this book with Amal Mattu's ECG Case of the Week (free) podcast, you will be well on your way to becoming an ECG expert.

Read the book today, read ECGs with more confidence tomorrow. Well, OK, this is the new, expanded version, so take a few more days to read it if you wish- but the point is, this is the book you need if your goal is to interpret ECGs rapidly and accurately. Additions to the previous edition have been well documented by Ankur, the first reviewer, and others. I also like the additional information about how to use (or not use) computerized ECG interpretations and the updated information about the significance of lead aVR. Dr. Grauer has given us an expanded and improved version of ECG Pocket Brain that, presented with his trademark style, greatly simplifies learning, understanding, and remembering ECG basics, and more importantly, stresses the necessity of consistently using a systematic approach that will allow you to interpret the vast majority of ECGs that you will come across without missing something important. This expanded version is 260 pages and spiral bound, but still compact enough to easily carry in a lab coat pocket as a ready reference. Refer to the ECG Crib Sheet on the last 2 pages now and then for a quick review, and use the page references provided there for quick retrieval of more in-depth information. But don't stop there- go to Dr. Grauer's ECG Blog and check out the wealth of information there. Challenge yourself with his ECG Competency Test. Take a look at his ACLS books. Wish all this had been available when I was a medical student.

As an internist and is going to attend Cardiology fellowship program soon , I highly recommended This book , Actually its my First reference in EKG .
What's more, Dr.Grauer focuses on making the reader understand why an EKG tracing looks the way it does, and does not rely on memorization of the morphology to justify a diagnose. This is critically important, because once you see an EKG tracing, you clearly understand the details of the pathology showed and that gives you a precise idea of what's happening inside that patient's heart and what treatment can help the patient's outcome.
This book has greatly enhanced and unique sections ,Clinical Use of Lead aVR lead, Identifying the culprit artery , how to recognize fasicular block in presence of other conditions , and how to localize the accessory pathway, more and more …, with fully enhanced pictures .It has many exercise to improve your knowledge especially acute MI practice tracing
This expanded version is 260 pages and spiral bound, easily carry in a lab coat pocket as a ready reference .
Dr Grauer is a world-class teacher of EKG. I watched his lectures in the YOUTUBE and his Blog .They were really instructive and informative. I found his book to be different from most classical EKG books and even cardiology books in the sense that it is like a ready reckoner of EKG interpretations, with lots of practical advise, and tips in a concise manner.
I would strongly encourage anyone who has had trouble grasping the concept of EKGs to pick this book up, and that includes physicians, resident, , EMTs, fellows , ANYONE who wants to learn or improves his EKG skills! I give it my highest recommendation

ECG-2014-EPUB edition is in my opinion the greatest book ever written on electrocardiography. This book is written by a Doctor with over 30 years of experience reviewing and interpreting very advanced and complicated tracings. The ePub version of this book is fantastic with 600+ pages of current and very relevant information regarding very hot topics in electrocardiography like sgarbossa's criteria for diagnosing MI with BBB/Pacers. This book can teach the most basic of students and even the most expert of interpreters can learn something from this text.

If you need a basic approach on how to start reading EKG's there is a great starting point given in this book. If you want to learn about axis, chamber enlargement, different forms of ventricular tachycardia, ways to help rule in ventricular tachycardia, stemi mimics, stemi's, localization of stemi's, culprit vessels, inherited disorders like brugada, atrial/ventricular arrythmias, pre-excitation(most importantly; diagnosing afib with wpw), Tx for all of these problems, how to do a 12 lead correctly, calculating rate, aberrant conduction, BBB, BBB and MI's, Pacemakers and so forth.

If it were possible I would buy enough copies of this book and pass them out to every person in my hospital that had anything to do with cardiac care. Anyone who performs or reads EKG's and needs to know even at the basic level of interpretation needs to read this book. MD's, PA's, NP's, RN's, Medic's, and anyone else who wants to broaden their knowledge base this is the place to start. There is no need to read any other book. This book covers every topic imaginable from A-Z. Excellent read!!!
