For anyone who feels they are competent at reading twelve lead ECGs this would be good for sharpening your skills of diagnosis, or even as a refresher. I think this is the best read and best buy of John Hampton s three books on the ECG, the others being The ECG Made Easy and The ECG in Practice as the recordings are presented in random order and the readers interest should be maintained throughout. The tracings are all graded for difficult; medical student, house officer, paramedic or nurse, and MRCP standard. Each twelve lead ECG in this book has a case history, and the answers are brief but to the point; listing ECG features, clinical interpretation, and importantly What to do .
One hundred ECGs are shown, each with a brief clinical vignette and a management question. On the next page salient features of the ECG are described, followed by a clinical interpretation and brief discussion about the management of the condition described.
