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


Volume 4: Arrhythmias

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 4, Arrhythmias–Part A: Core Cases presents 62 cases that are fundamental to the understanding and diagnosis of arrhythmias. Included are rhythm disorders involving the sinus node, those generated by the atrial myocardium, those involving the AV node or junction, and those that originate within the ventricular myocardium. Full Online Text ( of Part A: Core Cases) Free with Purchase of a Print Book.

An additional 58 cases for further study are available in a separate digital edition, Volume 4, Arrhythmias–Part B: Practice 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.

“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

Reviewer
Joaquin Crespo,  MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)

Description
This is the fourth volume of a review of the use of ECG in diagnosing cardiac arrhythmias. The accompanying ebook version includes additional practice cases.

Purpose
According to the authors, the manual is meant to "fill the gap in ECG education" and prepare students and healthcare providers of all levels for the spectrum of routine to challenging ECGs they will encounter in their clinical practice. These worthy objectives are achieved by the authors.

Audience
The audience includes students and healthcare providers of all levels. Medical and nursing students, physicians in training, nurses and nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and seasoned physicians will find this manual useful. It is of particular relevance to specialists in internal medicine, family medicine, cardiology, anesthesia, and emergency medicine. The book is authored and edited by well-respected teaching physicians from Harvard Medical School.

Features
A brief introduction describes ECG findings and electrophysiological pathways of commonly encountered arrhythmias. This is followed by 62 clinical scenarios with an accompanying ECG. These are initially presented with questions regarding diagnosis and treatment. Each case is further explored individually with the correct diagnosis, specific ECG findings to make note of, hints about what to consider in the clinical presentation, physiological explanations, and management recommendations. The format of a question followed by a detailed explanation is especially useful as it allows readers to test previously acquired knowledge and ECG-reading skills.

Assessment
This is a worthy addition to the available ECG interpretation literature. It covers all important aspects of ECG findings in cardiac arrhythmias, while providing appropriate illustrations, in-depth explanations, and management/physiological considerations. It is a very useful educational tool for any practicing clinician or trainee in the essential skill of ECG reading.
