Book Launch - ECG interpretation: it’s easier when you know how by Dr Richard Lynch

The ECG is one of the most commonly performed and important investigations in the management of the acutely unwell patient whether in the pre-hospital or hospital environment. Accurate and timely interpretation is paramount given the potential serious consequences of failure to recognise.

This book, ECG interpretation: it’s easier when you know how, is aimed at improving the confidence and competence in ECG interpretation amongst those responsible for it’s analysis.
Paramedics play a central role in the management of certain conditions such as acute myocardial infarction and arrhythmias due to the early recognition of ECG abnormalities. 

Unique features of this book include:

  • Exclusively uses ECGs from real-life patients
  • Detailed section on errors and lead misplacements, which is not covered at all in most books.
  • Self-assessment section which in an attempt to simulate real life no answers are provided. Instead people are invited to email their interpretation thus generating a discussion forum.
  • ECGs organised according to degree of difficult and not condition which is the norm in most other books.

This book is the culmination of 20 years collecting ECGs.
