Published Reviews

"The book thoroughly reviews adult and pediatric electrocardiography with an emphasis on the clinical manifestations of disease and the scientific basis for the electrocardiogram. New chapters cover ICD and pacemaker tracings with expanded coverage on stress testing. New sections explore the rhythm problems associated with pediatric obesity, heart failure, and athletics. The authors have created a useful new edition that is an indispensable reference source for ECG principles and applications. It delivers clinically relevant guidance on all of today's electrocardiographic applications, provides many useful illustrations, and is full of sample ECGs." - Doody's ***
