This book elucidates the process of reading electrocardiograms (ECGs) in children. It provides a structured, step-by-step guide for interpreting ECGS using algorithms, which allow clinicians to decipher the data within these tracings and establish differential diagnoses. The book also presents actual high-definition ECG tracings, which are annotated and highlighted to demonstrate the issues discussed. Topics include cellular electrophysiology changes and electrocardiography and disorders such as axis abnormalities, heart rate and rhythm disturbances, hypertrophy, conduction abnormalities, and fetal arrhythmias. Clinical scenarios with answers provide real-life examples of how pediatric patients present, their ECGs, and treatment methodology. Pediatric Electrocardiography: An Algorithmic Approach is a valuable resource for pediatricians, family medicine physicians, cardiologists, and medical students.
