230 exceptional electrocardiogram case studies curated from the libraries of 60 internationally recognized master teachers of ECG interpretation are brought together in this one-of-a-kind resource for student and teacher alike.

Organized by disease type, ECG case studies are presented in a clinical context followed by questions and discussion. Medical students, residents, fellows, physicians — anyone who is involved in caring for patients with various cardiovascular diseases and other systemic pathologies — will find this unique collection with a global perspective useful and practical in developing the skills necessary to reading ECGs.

ECG Master's Collection edited by Mohammad Shenasa, Mark Josephson, Mark Estes III, Ezra Amsterdam and Melvin Scheinman offers the busy reader a very wide collection of ECGs, selected and discussed by experienced electrocardiographers and cardiac clinical electrophysiologists.

Students of electrocardiography will enjoy reading this book and teachers will utilize many of its tracings as materials for their ECG rounds. The editors should be congratulated for having assembled a unique and ample collection of ECG recordings demonstrating that the ECG still plays a major role in the diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic decision making of electric and non-electric cardiovascular disorders. Personally, I will recommend this book to arrhythmologists, general cardiologists, cardiology fellows and residents in cardiology, emergency and internal medicine. The book is a must for every teacher and student of electrocardiography.
