This practical, easy-to-read and easy-to-remember guide to the ECG as a tool for diagnosis and management has been fully updated in its fourth edition to reflect the latest guidelines.

Interpreting an ECG correctly and working out what to do next can seem like a daunting task to the non-specialist, yet it is a skill that will be invaluable to any doctor, nurse, or paramedic when evaluating the condition of a patient.

This book has been written specifically with this in mind, and will help the student and more experienced healthcare practitioner to identify and answer crucial questions, including:

- Are these abnormalities significant?
- How to I distinguish between VT and SVT?
- Has the patient had a myocardial infarction?
- How do I measure the QT interval?
- Should I refer this patient to a cardiologist?
