- Teaches electrophysiology from a pathophysiologic basis
- Standalone chapters
Over the last decade, there has been a tremendous improvement in our understanding of basic cardiac electrophysiology. Most introductory electrocardiogram (ECG) books teach via pattern recognition and do not incorporate new pathophysiologic information.
There is a great need for a simple book that teaches electrocardiography from a pathophysiologic basis. ECG Interpretation: From Pathophysiology to Clinical Application has been written to fill this gap. It can be utilized as a reference - chapter by chapter or read throughout for an overview. Each chapter will end with questions that provide a chapter review. Case studies are highlighted at the end of the book that integrate the multiple principles of electrocardiography.

Written for: Residents in Internal Medicine, cardiology fellows, cardiologists
