Although the book is entitled, Diagnostic Electrocardiography and Vectorcardiography, the actual vectorcardiographic loop is not included in the text; instead, a hand-drawn schematic loop is shown in the vectorcardiographic section of each chapter. The selection of the electrocardiographic illustrations is satisfactory, but the quality of some of the reproduced tracings is so poor that they are extremely difficult to interpret. Obviously, some illustrations are reproduced xeroxgraphic copies of ECG tracings.
As the title indicates, only diagnostic aspects of electrocardiography are discussed; however, the conciseness of the content leads to over-simplification of some chapters, particularly the chapter dealing with cardiac arrhythmias.
