"The ECG Made Easy has for some time been the pocket reference for junior doctors... invaluable in a clinical setting."Nursing Standard godsend to thousands of practising physicians and surgeons who have never mastered the ECG, but always felt they should have done."European Medical Journal fact that 'The ECG Made Easy' is now in its sixth edition must be testament to the enduring popularity of this book. It's an easy step-by-step readable guide to how to interpret ECGs." Medical Student, MAD Magazine (Medics and Dentists at Barts and The London), April 2003 good starter, but you may need some help. One of the most popular introductory texts on this subject. All the basic concepts for understanding this topic are included, though there could be more emphasis on possible areas of confusion; such as the different between leads and wires . This book also suffers from only being pocket sized and having pocket sized tracings, and on pages that depict limb and chest leads the layout could be improved to show that they are separate groups. For a newcomer to this subject you may not find it all that easy, as the explanations may need some practical demonstrations from an accomplished teacher with topics such as the cardiac axis. However this book does avoid the jargon and physiology that can be off putting in most other introductory texts. If this book leaves you with further questions, you would probably also need and indeed benefit from the author s two other titles The ECG in Practice and 100 ECG Problems . This would enable you to improve your skills of interpretation, and the three titles bought over time would provide an adequate inexpensive reference shelf for most health care workers. The ECG is never easy to understand for beginners, but this book does at least try."Review on Amazon.co.uk
