As with most of medicine, there is no substitute for experience, and to make the best use of the ECG there is no substitute for reviewing large numbers of them. ECGs need to be seen in the context of the patient from whom they were recorded. We have to learn to appreciate the variations both of normality and of the patterns associated with different diseases, and to think about how the ECG can help patient management.
Although no book can substitute for practical experience, ECG CHALLENGE goes a stage nearer the clinical world than books that simply aim to teach ECG interpretation. It presents clinical problems in the shape of simple case histories, together with the relevant ECG. It invites the reader to interpret the ECG in the light of the clinical evidence provided, and to decide on a course of action before looking at the answer.
In this first version, 30 ECGs are added.
