Volume 2: Myocardial Abnormalities

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.

Volume 2, Myocardial Abnormalities, breaks down the essential skills necessary for diagnosing acute myocardial ischemia as well as acute and chronic myocardial infarction--arguably the most important component of the ECG armamentarium across the spectrum of health care professions. It also demonstrates the skills needed for the diagnosis of myocardial hypertrophy, atrial abnormality, and pericarditis. Volume 2, Myocardial Abnormalities includes 92 cases.


By the editor of the popular ECG Challenge series in Circulation.

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.

ABOUT podrid's real-world ecg SERIES:

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.

Reviewer
Evan Jacobs,  MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)

Description
Written by a world renowned expert, this collection of six volumes covers a broad variety of ECGs with clinical presentations that accompany tracings. This volume provides an excellent overview and systematic approach to interpreting ECG findings associated with hypertrophy, ischemia, infarction, and pericarditis.

Purpose
It is designed to be a teaching aid for ECGs commonly encountered in clinical practice.

Audience
The audience includes nurses, advanced practice clinicians, medical students, physicians in training, and practicing physicians.

Features
This book covers typical ECG findings associated with hypertrophy, ischemia, infarction, and pericarditis. Each case is followed by a practical step-by-step, written approach that can be applied to properly interpret each ECG. Each tracing includes a pathophysiologic explanation in the discussion.

Assessment
This is a useful guide to interpretation of ECG findings in the selected conditions for cardiology fellows and practicing physicians.
