This is an excellent book- There are several attributes that make this book ideal for the EM physician who is learning EKG's:

1.) Cases are quick and short, so if you only have 10-15 min you can get valuable info during that time.
2.) It starts easy and gets harder which is ideal.
3.) You see multiple variations of the same thing with thorough explanations each time.

I went through the 1st section with about 30 min 3x a week in one month and felt more comfortable reading EKG's than some of my senior colleagues.

This is the second volume of the best EKG book for Emergency Medicine training. The EKGs get progressively more difficult and just have a small tagline "50yo female with chest pain" etc. Then you look up the answer in the back. In the back the EKGs are read formally "Normal sinus rhythm, left axis deviation, prolonged QT, left anterior fascicular block and ST-elevation in the inferior leads consistent with transmural ischemia"...something like that. Then it gives an explaination of the main finding for example in this case it might go on to tell you about inferior STEMI. I learn quite a lot from these explanations and they seem to build on each other as you go.

This is the perfect follow-up to Mattu and Brady's first EKG book, and a must read for those who really want to fine-tune their EKG skills.
As with the first volume, this one contains hundreds of unknown EKG's and a one-line clinical vignette. Once you have made your reading, you check the correct answer at the end of the section, which also includes teaching points.

Neither of these books would be for someone new to reading EKG's - they are too demanding. But, for those wishing to be as good as you can be, go through these two volumes.

Then do it again!

This is a great book with very illustrative case examples that help hone keg skills. Sadly the format is a pain. The book itself is a pain with the answers in a different section from the ecgs. This makes it difficult to look at the discussion from one without accidentally seeing the diagnosis for the next. What is a difficult format in print is made worse on the kindle with its cumbersome navigating.

If you want to be challenged, this is the book for you. All of Mattu's ECG books humble me. I recommend this one to our residents.
