The ECG Made Easy is a comprehensive book for medical students, students of medical electronics and medical lab operators. The book helps students understand the working of the Electrocardiograph and teaches them how to interpret the ECG for better and more accurate analysis. The book explains that the ECG is just a natural extension of the patient's history and performing a physical examination. It helps users to identify normal and abnormal ECG patterns, and helps them make a diagnosis based in concrete fact instead of misinterpreting the information the ECG provides. It also explains conduction, and the inherent problems therein, and explains how the heart beats in a rhythm. In addition, the book covers the abnormalities of P waves, QRS complexes and T waves, and helps students use the ECG to their maximum benefit. The book is an indispensable reference for all medical students and professionals.
