This new title is ideal for clinicians working in out-of-hospital settings who need to interpret electrocardiography safely and understand when to consult a cardiologist.

The book presents a new method, ECG10+, for assessing ECGs without missing relevant pathology. The method enables readers systematically and safely to read ECGs by addressing 10 ECG findings and linking them to the clinical presentation. The book covers indications and quality of assessment, how to undertake ECGs, explanations of equipment and assessment of the various types of ECG waves.

Assessing and Understanding ECGs is ideal for GPs, nurses and other healthcare workers who may need to make or interpret ECGs, as well as residents and clinicians working in hospital settings both in and outside cardiology.
