Clinical ECG's in Paramedic Practice
A concise and easy-to-use guide to ECG interpretation, this book takes the complex subject of cardiac electrophysiology and presents it in a clear, full-colour format designed specifically for paramedics and those working in the out of hospital environment.
‘This excellent book will be of interest and indeed of much value to anyone wanting to understand ECG interpretation. It is one that I can definitely recommend.’
Douglas Chamberlain, CBE MD FRCP FACC (Emeritus).
Presented as independently accessible sections, the reader is taken from the basics of cardiac anatomy, physiology and fundamental ECG principles, through to arrhythmia recognition and 12-lead ECG interpretation. The inclusion of information on clinical signs and symptoms, underlying causes and differentials, and management decisions for each presentation places the reader’s ECG learning clearly in the context of their wider clinical knowledge and experience. Practice ECGs and case-based scenarios enable the reader to consolidate their learning and understanding.
Applying ECG interpretation to paramedic practice and clinical presentations, this book is an essential learning resource for both students who are new to the subject as well as prehospital professionals hoping to expand and consolidate their knowledge.
