ECG Handbook for Medical Students
Electrocardiography (ECG), despite its 110-year history, remains one of the most widely used non-invasive methods for examining the heart in daily practice. It is extremely important that the future doctor acquires basic knowledge of ECG from the student bench. The authors define the individual elements of the ECG and their electrophysiological basis. This section is very well illustrated and allows a natural transition to a description of the normal ECG.
In a separate section, the deviations in the ECG are presented, which is completely relevant and would support the practical exercises. Heart rhythm and conduction disorders are defined and examined in detail and at the same time very didactically. This section is also very well illustrated.
ECG Handbook for Medical Students The manual enables students to gain the necessary knowledge about atrial and ventricular hypertrophy and their clinical significance in a sufficient, clear and systematic way. The authors have allocated a section on the ECG changes in myocardial infarction, which would support the early recognition of this pathology. This section defines the terms ventricular extrasystoles, dangerous ventricular extrasystoles, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular flutter and fibrillation.
