This timely text examines them all. They are:
- detecting patency of the infarct-related artery after an acute intervention
- detecting reperfusion
- the quantification of myocardial salvage after interventions
- how modifying the recording technique may lead to better diagnostic information
- recently identified ECG features that correlate with specific coronary artery lesions
No other book so clearly or comprehensively details the ability of the electrocardiogram
to suggest treatment in this relatively recent and dynamic era of aggressive
intervention in myocardial infarction. This book will be of great interest to
cardiologists, arrhythamia specialists, electrophysiologists, emergency room
physicians and all others who need to remain current regarding the ever-evolving
clinical utility of this critical diagnostic tool.
This monograph provides an up-to-date review of the use of the electrocardiogram in acute myocardial infarction.
