150 ECG Cases by John Hampton highlights clinical concerns in the form of straightforward case histories accompanied by the important ECG. Detailed responses focus on the clinical interpretation of the results and offer recommendations for further steps. The book can be used independently to practice ECG interpretations, and even with the most challenging ECGs, a beginner will be able to accurately describe the trace and be guided toward the critical components of interpretation.
- Due to the unique page size, 12-lead ECGs can be shown on a single page for clarity.
- Numerous cases use chest X-rays and coronary angiograms to demonstrate the appearances associated with a variety of heart diseases.
- Each example is assessed in terms of complexity and includes cross-references to the new versions of ECG Made Easy and ECG Made Practical.
This Fifth Edition of 150 ECG Cases by John Hampton is divided into two sections:
- Part 1: Routine ECGs: The 75 ECGs included in this section are representative of those encountered in clinical practice. There are various illustrations of the most significant abnormalities, as well as illustrations of ordinary deviations from normality.
- Part 2 More Difficult ECGs: The 75 ECGs in this portion are more difficult and contain ECG patterns that are less frequently encountered in clinical practice.
Over 15% of new ECGs have been incorporated in this Fifth Edition, primarily to provide clearer examples, however the book purposefully preserves certain technically deficient recordings to keep a ‘real-world’ viewpoint.
