Описание: Basic Electrocardiography: Normal and Abnormal ECG Patterns is not an additional regular textbook on electrocardiography. Professor Antoni Bayes de Luna, the author of the present textbook is a world-wide renowned electrocardiographer and clinical cardiologist who has contributed to our knowledge and understanding of electrocardiology over the years. In the present textbook, he shares with us his vast experience and knowledge, summarising the traditional concepts of electrocardiography and vectrocardiography combined with current updates on the most recent developments correlating electrocardiographic patterns with magnetic resonance imaging. This textbook is of particular value to the American physicians and healthcare providers, as it exposes the reader to the Mexican, Argentinean and European schools of electrocardiography, which some of the earlier textbooks have tended to overlook.
The present textbook provides a concise summary of the classical and modern concepts of electrocardiology and provides 22 cases covering a wide spectrum of normal variations and abnormal electrocardiographic findings. In these cases Dr. Bayes de Luna explains his approach for interpreting the electrocardiogram and integrating it with the clinical findings.
In conclusion, this textbook is an asset for every cardiologist, internist, primary care physician, as well as medical students and other healthcare providers interested in broadening their skills in electrocardiography.
