Featured title on IBHRE's Cardiac Electrophysiology Core Reading List Recommendations for the Physician and Allied Professional - more information

Full-page detailed landscape tracings with discussions on fundamental electrophysiologic and electrocardiographic principles and clinical concepts. Particularly useful for quickly building an ECG library, or studying for certification and recertification cardiology examinations.

The sixth and final print volume in the Podrid’s Real-World ECGs series presents 124 case studies covering:

  • pacemakers

  • ECG recording issues

  • drugs

  • electrolytes

  • congenital conditions

  • abnormalities


Dr. Philip Podrid, the primary author, is an academic cardiologist and Professor of Medicine and Pharmacology at Boston University School of Medicine and a Lecturer at Harvard Medical School. He has taught ECG interpretation for more than 35 years to medical students, house staff (interns and residents), cardiology fellows, physicians, nurses, and EMTs.


Podrid's Real-World ECGs are case-based workbooks that offer students, instructors, health care professionals, and physicians an indispensable resource for developing and honing the technical skills and systematic approach needed to interpret ECGs with confidence. ECGs from real patient cases offer a complete and in-depth learning experience by focusing on fundamental electrophysiologic properties and clinical concepts as well as detailed discussion of important diagnostic findings and relevant management decisions. 8 comprehensive volumes (6 titles with 2 additional volumes of practice cases) encompass 648 individual case studies that include discussion about the important waveforms and clinical decision-making involved. From an introductory volume that outlines the approaches and tools utilized in the analysis of all ECGs to subsequent volumes covering particular disease entities for which the ECG is useful, readers will take away the in-depth knowledge needed to successfully interpret the spectrum of routine to challenging ECGs they will encounter in their own clinical practice.


“Dr. Philip Podrid’s books on ECGs are a must for every practicing and academic cardiologist…. Anyone who comes into contact with medical students and house staff will want this series of books.” - Kenneth A. Ellenbogen, MD

Drs. Philip Podrid and colleagues continue to help supplement the ECG nutritional deficiency syndrome…” Zachary D. Goldberger, MD, in PACE

“…an ideal instructional book…particularly for fellows and clinicians studying for certification and recertification cardiology examinations.” Volume 3, Paul Rogers, MD, PhD, Doody’s Review Service

“There are many review books for ECG interpretation, but few are as enjoyable to read and study as this one.” Volume 1, Ravi Kode, MD, Doody’s Review Service

This is a volume in a series that outlines a diverse span of electrocardiographic findings related to arrhythmias secondary to myocardial or conduction abnormalities. This book focuses on paced rhythms and congenital and electrolyte abnormalities. Each clinical case scenario along with ECG findings is broken down into simple and easy-to-comprehend concepts.

The purpose is to provide practitioners and students at all stages of learning with a foundation of normal and abnormal findings seen on ECGs associated with pacemakers and electrolyte and congenital abnormalities. These issues are encountered daily in inpatient and outpatient settings.

This would be a great resource for general cardiologists and electrophysiologists who are routinely encountering patients with pacemakers/defibrillators. It will also assist cardiology fellows, medical residents, and medical students in identifying electrolyte and congenital abnormalities on ECG and correlate those findings clinically.

Each clinical case scenario with a corresponding ECG is followed by a basic explanation of anomalies seen on each lead along with arrows or stars depicting each finding on the ECG. This strategy helps enhance the reader's ability to confidently comprehend and interpret findings related to abnormalities.

Because arrhythmias are a common cause of morbidity and mortality in clinical practice, it is essential to have resources such as this to aid in building strong concepts for readers interested in improving ECG interpretation. The authors have done a commendable job of compiling ECGs in a single resource that will be frequently referred to when clinicians deal with complex findings related to pacemakers and electrolyte and congenital abnormalities.
