Field of medicine: Electrocardiography.
Format: Hardcover book.
Audience: Clinicians and house officers in internal medicine who intend to sharpen their diagnostic accuracy in electrocardiographic interpretation.
Purpose: To provide and emphasize the vector concept as a basis for understanding electrocardiographic interpretation.
Content: The book has 7 parts. Part I describes elements of the learning process. Some would consider this topic sophomoric; however, when J. Willis Hurst—an outstanding teacher, clinician, and prolific cardiovascular author—deems this chapter important, others should listen. The succeeding parts of the book discuss interesting historical aspects of the electrocardiogram, the basic principles of electrocardiographic interpretation, the electrocardiogram as a clinical diagnostic tool, normal variations in the electrocardiogram, and specific and diagnostic electrocardiographic abnormalities.
