Conceptual Electrocardiography

W. Barton Campbell

EKG texts currently on the market present EKGs as patterns for rote memorization. This book alternatively presents a uniquely conceptual approach to the interpretation of electrocardiograms. This book contains over 140 exemplary instructive EKGs with an additional 40 self-assessment EKGs. Chapters start with an historical introduction on the nature of EKGs followed by text and illustrations regarding the conceptualization of EKG forces. Further chapters cover specific EKG abnormalities. Included are chapters covering changes which accrue from intraventricular conduction abnormalities, chamber enlargement, ischemic heart disease, COPD, pulmonary embolus, electrolyte abnormalities, basic dysrhythmias and various artifacts. The book is purposefully written to enable utilization of the superior approach of conceptual analysis of electrocardiographic forces as opposed to rote memorization of patterns.

Conceptual Electrocardiography is a must-have learning resource for medical students, residents, nurse PAs, critical care and ER physicians, and cardiology fellows and attendings.
